Amazing Value for a mower battery

I've used this battery for a Murray Rear Engine Rider with a 10HP Tecumseh and a Murray Mid-Engine rider with a 13.5HP OHV Tecumseh.

These batteries have plenty of power for mowers with these vertical shaft engines and no lights. My only minor gripe is that the carriage bolt holes that were in the first one aren't there for the second one I bought for the newer mower.

Bought 4 months ago. Kept going dead all winter in the garage. Garage temp is well above freezing, but I thought the colder temp was causing it to go dead. It was not. Now the weather is warm and it still won't hold a charge, but it's 4 months old and the warrantee has run out. It's only a 3 month replacement warrentee and they don't prorate it after that, so I got stuck.

      You can use the u1-1 but if you can afford it go with the 3. They seem to
      last longer.

  • Q:

    Why is it for this particular battery I've had to purchase one for the past three lawn seasons and it dies each spring when the season starts again? I've even stored in indoors during winter and occasionally would provide a trickle charger on it to maintain the charge. Seems to me after the third time these are nothing but disposable each year!
    Asked on 5/6/2017 by Mike from Richmond, VA

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hi Mike! On average, a battery will last 3 to 5 years, but driving habits and exposure to extreme elements can shorten the life of your car battery. Your car's battery is used to start the engine when you turn the key. This requires the battery to effectively empty itself in one go, before being slowly charged back up again by the engine. If you constantly make small journeys, the battery will deteriorate faster and need replacing sooner than if you regularly travel longer distances. Other factors that determine battery life include the prevailing temperature, how much physical stress you put on it, and how demanding your car's extra electronic features are. But like almost every vehicle component, its lifespan will depend mostly on maintenance and sympathetic use. However, I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.
