OK, the old battery was an AutoCraft six volt that I purchased from Advance Auto. Seems now their six volt battery is a CARQUEST HD Battery Heavy Duty Commercial & Farm Battery, Group Size 1, 700 CCA. Price is $96.99. So I was thinking of buying it. I called Rural King, the woman transfer me to automotive and after five minutes of no one answering I gave up. I search the Rural King without luck although they may have one if I go visit.
Yes, the float charger is a good idea. The tractor sat most of the winter because of the lift issue; I couldn't even haul firewood; so that probably help the demise. Still, seven years is a good run. I probably should have put the charger on it at times but I didn't.
