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.

Generic Tractor Battery

The generic tractor battery was priced within range and because of the website discount was 15% percent cheaper then buying from competitors.

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

      Product has a 3 month warranty and my battery only lasted 5 months. Will no longer hold a charge! Maintained with charger every 3-4 weeks. Still did not last. I would not recommend this to anybody. Called the store was told they cant do anything about it, it's out of the 3 month warranty. Going to look elsewhere for my next u1-3 battery.

          I have 2 cub cadet tractors, and I maintain them very good. I check the oil, every time I start it up, and I change the differential oil every 2 seasons. Advance Auto has all the battery and oil. I can use Cub Cadet merchandise, but I will pay a premium price. So I check Advance Auto for coupons, which comes right off the top
          of my purchases, and I am very happy about saving the few dollars. I am on a fixed income, and welcome the savings.
          So the next time my battery needs to be changed, I will gladly come back to Advance...

                    The new battery is for my 21 horse lawn tractor. The 46" cut requires a strong battery. I am pleased that the engine starts from the strong battery pulse. I have had no difficulties from installation of the battery. The no start problem corrected with the 340 cranking amp battery. The tractor got caught in a 2" rain with the battery unprotected. There was immediate response to the next call for starting. I would suggest online purchase because there are discounts available, especially the $25 coupon for $50 from a previous order.

                              I'm glad to assist, Rick! This Autocraft Lawn & Garden 12-Volt Small Engine Battery (Part No. U1-3) will replace your John Deere MowPro (Part No. GY20982). Generally, all U1 size batteries will fit most lawn & garden equipment that require a lead-acid type battery. You will want to make sure that the cranking amps will meet your requirements and that you do not have a reverse post battery. Those batteries will include an R in the part number.

This battery is listed as a U1 type battery. To ensure that you are replacing your battery with one that is exactly the same as what is coming out of your lawn tractor, please provide the Part No. off the battery and we can cross reference your battery to a compatible one.
