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.

The battery fulfills the use in the lawn tractor. I ordered online and was offered a 20% discount. I cannot remember my password so I checked out as a guest, and did not receive my 20% discount. The guy at the store would not honor discount. He said I was not spending enough money.

More power than previous

By

Pros

  • Built in carrying handle
  • Built in charge indicator
  • More power

Cons

  • None

Best Uses

  • Lawn tractor
  • Small engines

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

This battery has about 10% more cranking amps and CCA than the previous battery I had installed in my JD108. It was a perfect fit and the battery was fully charged when purchased. This will be the first time I am using a no maintenance battery for this application and only time will tell regarding that aspect, but I do like the fact that this battery has a built-in charge indicator bubble window, shows green with a full charge to it. This battery also has a built in carrying handle which made it a lot easier to install into the battery bay.

    This battery has almost 50% more CCA than the battery it replaced and that makes a HUGE difference. Obviously, the big question is how well it will stand the test of time.

              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.

                  A:

                  Good question, TBell1! A battery's height should always be measured to the top of the post. This ensures that when the battery is installed, it will have enough overhead clearance. The terminal post measures 1.10"-inch (28 mm) high from the battery case.

                1 answer

                • CUSTOMER CARE

                  A:

                  Hi Noe, glad to help you! This depends on how fast you want to charge your battery and the size of the actual battery you are charging. The higher the amp setting, the faster your battery will charge. For smaller batteries like lawn/tractors and motorcycles, we suggest a 2-amp charge rate, as higher charge rates may create a dangerous condition. Check your battery specifications for the charge rate. When the CHARGED LED is lit; the charger has started Maintain Mode. In this mode, the charger keeps the battery fully charged by delivering a small current when necessary. If the battery voltage drops below a preset level, the charger will go back in to Charge Mode until the battery voltage returns to the full charge level, which at this point the charger will return to Maintain Mode. The charger automatically switches between Charge Mode and Maintain Mode as necessary. The CHARGED LED will cycle on when the battery is at full charge and off when the voltage drops below a preset level and the charger goes into Charge Mode. The cycle will continue, and the CHARGED LED will stay on for longer periods of time as the battery becomes more fully charged. The voltage is maintained at a level determined by the BATTERY TYPE selected. NOTE: The maintain mode technology utilized in Schumacher's maintainers allows you to safely charge and maintain a healthy battery for extended periods of time. However, problems with the battery, electrical problems in the vehicle, improper connections or other unanticipated conditions could cause excessive voltage draws. As such, occasionally monitoring the battery and the charging process is recommended. For more information, please copy and paste this link. URL - http://www.batterychargers.com/faqs/

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.

              • 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?

The terminal location is determined by looking at the battery with the posts closer to you.
