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.

Used in Dixie Chopper, which requires a heavy duty battery. Great experience: ordered online and picked up within 20 minutes. Most efficient in-store pickup I've ever experienced. In and out of the store in less than 5 minutes. This replaces one that lasted almost 9 years. Hope this one is just as good!

  • Q:

    Have Bolens riding mower with battery MTG 925-1707D. what battery do I need. Fits under seat so impt. If I return old battery do i still have to pay core charge?
    Asked on 7/7/2017 by Kim from Lakeland FL

    2 answers

    • A:

      Kim that should be the right battery unless your post are reversed. Then you would need a U1R-2. When you order a battery online you automatically get charged a core charge but when you pick the battery up take the core and they return it on the same ticket. The online system just doesnt know if you are gonna have the old battery with you when you pickup your order.

    • A:

      The only concern is what side the positive and negative terminals are on for your tractor. If the picture matches your current battery then you are good.  Yes, they refund the core immediately if you return the old one.

      Answered on 5/16/2017 by mburke3 from undisclosed
    • A:

      Yes and no. The part number you gave is for a U1r battery, which means that positive post is on the right side of the battery. The U1 battery has the positive post on the left side. If your ground and positive cables are long enough, then yes it will work. But I'm fairly confident advanced sells a U1r battery that would be a direct replacement.

  • Q:

    Is the 7 5/16" height include the posts/terminals? If so, what is the height of the case? Thank you!
    Asked on 10/23/2016 by TBell1 from Winfield, WV

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      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.

    Asked on 10/6/2016 by Noe from United States

    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/

  • 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?
