                  Comments about AutoCraft Lawn & Garden 12-Volt Small Engine Maintenance-Free Battery, Group Size U1R, 340 CCA:

                  I needed a battery for my riding mower which I bought new in 1985 and I knew from past experience that the best batteries usually have the highest CCA (Cold Cranking Amps). I did a lot of checking on-line and in ads for the best price on a quality battery. This battery was among my top choices. When I discovered a 30 percent discount if I spent fifty dollars, this was a bargain. The battery was less than coupon so I added a couple of small items to get the total to the coupon minimum and made the purchase. I needed to carry the old battery in to take care of the core charge anyway so I was able to make one trip to pick up new battery and drop off the old one.

                      Mower cranks good. This battery is a 340 cranking amp, more capacity than the original 230. It replaces. It wasn't much more money and should help with winter starting. Fit battery box and terminal hardware properly. We will see how it lasts in the future. I keep a battery tender on my mower so it should be good for a few years at least.

With reference to your inquiry on the Autocraft Lawn&Garden 12-Volt Small Engine Maintenance-Free Battery, Group Size U1R, 340 CCA (Part. no U1R-2), car batteries are already fully charged and you should be fine to just put it in and crank it up.

                          A:

                          Hi Radar, glad to serve you! This battery come with 3 months replacement warranty only. The battery Free Replacement Period begins the day of purchase and expires at the end of the Free Replacement Period that is printed on your original sales receipt. This period does not renew when the battery is replaced during the Free Replacement Period. If the battery is found defective after the Free Replacement Period but prior to the end of the warranty period, a prorated credit will be issued that can be applied toward the purchase of a new battery. The prorated credit will be determined by dividing the original purchase price by the number of months of the warranty period, then multiplying the result by the months remaining in the warranty period. Partial months are rounded to the nearest whole month. Installation or use of an automotive battery in any other type of vehicle or equipment voids your warranty.
