battery recommendation

Postby Frank Dodson » Tue Nov 19, 2013 11:29 pm

The 6 volt battery on my cub bit the dust. I would appreciate any recommendations on a good 6 volt battery.
Thanks :?

NAPA or any place that sells Interstate batteries. Ask if they can get you a Group 1 or Group 19L blem.

I got mine at AutoZone - they actually had it in stock, and they were the best price. So far, it has held up as well as the ones I used to buy at NAPA.

I have found that my local Tractor Supply sells a 6 volt battery for about $45. $55 if you don't turn in an old battery. However not all stores sell the battery for that price. Others stores are apparently selling the battery for $89. We talked about this is a while ago on another thread here. I put one in my 56 Cub this fall. So far it works very well in the Cub.

Yep, that's what I do to. There is always good coupons for Advance Auto, order online and pick up at store.
