Lawn and Garden Battery by Autocraft.

These small engine lawn and garden batteries by Autocraft are a cost effective solution to your aging lawn tractor battery. These batteries are almost maintenance free. 300 cold cranking amps should make starting quicker and put less a strain on your starter. These batteries are fully charged and ready to be installed right from the store. A fresh battery will put less a strain on your entire electrical system. They are designed to prevent internal shorts from all the harsh vibrations and rough conditions presented by lawn and garden equipment.
You may want to purchase a small packet of battery terminal protector for use when you install your new battery.
I have also used these batteries in simple low amp hour appliances as a backup or replacement.

    Comments about AutoCraft Lawn & Garden 12-Volt Small Engine Maintenance-Free Battery, Group Size U1, 340 CCA:

    Each season I ended up needing to purchase a new battery. This one only lasted 12 uses before losing it's charge. 1 month out of warranty, so advance will not replace. Go with a better brand battery, you'll be happier in the long run.

    Comments about AutoCraft Lawn & Garden 12-Volt Small Engine Maintenance-Free Battery, Group Size U1, 340 CCA:

    The Autocraft battery had the same box size as the U1 I removed from my lawn mower. However, the battery has two large rectangle caps on top that interfered with the bracket that holds the battery down in my Cub Cadet 1525. The battery is now leaning at an angle towards with the bracket very snug up against the caps. I hope they don't break off!

    Before purchasing make sure your machine doesn't have a bracket on top that holds the battery in!

    a battery is a battery when new,ill see how it performs later.
    i also purchased seal all,this stuff is solvent proof. i bought a a parts washer with holes rusted in the bottom and used seal all and sheet metal screws to fix the problem.i use mineral spirits to clean parts with,and after 2 years,no leaks,i have also used it to seal warped carburetors, and it works fine.,i have also used it as a contact cement to reinstall lawn mower deck wheels,and so far so good.once it dries on your hands,you almost have to wear it off. this is a product i recomend whenever i get the chance .

          A:

          Hi Kurt, glad to help you! This AutoCraft Lawn&Garden 12-Volt Small Engine Maintenance-Free Battery, Group Size U1, 340 CCA (Part No. U1-3) should work fine on your Craftsman Command 15.5 hp riding lawn mower. However, this battery is universal and not application specific hence you would have to match the one with its specifications.

          Answered on 9/21/2016 by Steve from AAP
      • Q:

        The specs online says 325/375 but the battery label online says 325/425 which is it? Also, an R added to the U1 suppose to stand for a Right sided positive post, this battery being left, however, the top pictures show all of the positive post on the same side, even the battery with an R. That being said the rest of the label matches the item number that is selected. What did they do impose the different labels on the same battery?

      • Q:

        Battery U1,340 CCA. On-line ad says that the battery is 'maintenance-free. Nowhere on the battery labels or in store display from Autocraft does it say 'maintenance-free'. The store employees where unsure. The battery does have the water-well covers. Is it totally 'maintenance-free'?

          A:

          Hi Bill! The battery is a maintenance free battery; it does have the caps on the top but it is not designed to be opened to "maintain" it. If the fluid level is low due to lost acid, or damage water should not be added because the electrolyte levels will be unbalanced.
