Wow! So many to choose from. I want to try one from Harbor Freigt and see how it goes but I have 11 tractors plus a car and truck. My 49 8N and 10 lawn and garden tractors. When it was 6 or 7 I tried keeping a good charged battery in each one. Well batteries cost almost 4X as much now and the trickle chargers I was using has fried a few at 2 amps and 13.4 volts. I got lazy and stopped taking the batteries out of the tractors parked out in the cold Winter weather - I figured the little 2 amp chargers would keep them from freezing/cracking a case. Then too batteries only last so long. It seems I'm shoping for a battery every 4 to 6 months. Then there is that pile of used batteries I refused to turn in and paid the core charge thinking one day I'd magically learn how to rejuvinate them and save bookuu dollars. Batteries are taking up too much of my time.
