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.

              Great product, Store pick-up was NOT easy. The item was not pulled from the shelf waiting on me when I arrived even though I got an email saying it was ready for pick-up AND "I" had to locate the battery on the shelf, the clerk spent 5 minutes and was in the opposite end of the store. Horrible experience.

              Manufactured 6/14 dead 5/16. No warranty, not even prorated. I park my mower in a shed, bring it in every fall and hook it up to a trickle charger till spring. I went with the higher CCA when I bought this over the cheaper one thinking it would last longer. I was wrong and Advance made more money. Would rate 0 stars if it would let me.

                  Got battery to replace bad mower battery. New battery has good power. Can't speak to longevity yet. Battery came with $10.00 rebate. Rebate was very easy to process online but it came as an Advance Auto specific rebate, not a VISA card as is typical these days so rebate must be used at Advance Auto. I think that is very underhanded for Advance to do that. Also, the card cannot be used with online orders. This is a horrible way for Advance to do rebates and they need to change this ASAP!!!!!!!!

I can already tell this battery is Awesome as the AutoCraft battery I just also had installed in my Jetta. You guys even installed it for me. I buy all my auto needs at Advanced Auto. Thanks guys I can always depend on you!

                  • 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?

                      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.
