What type if battery should I use for a spitfire TM? The guy that was going to install it says a lawn mower battery is fine but not sure
The reason they do not last as long is improper charging, Truckmounts do not have alternators but rather magnetos that somewhat charge the batteries but only while running. If you do not have a trickle charger in line then get one! It will pay for itself over and over!I use a car battery with over 600 crankin" amps....and bring 2 sets of jumper cables to jump from the TM to the van. Left key on after I shut down the van and when I went to leave the job the battery was dead. Just jumped from TM to van battery and on my way.
some of those lawn mower battery's do not last a year from what I have seen. Plus they cost as much as a big battery.
I have used them. They work great. Amazon for about 30 or so.That would be a first I've heard of that. Solar trickle charger . Interesting. Like to know of that works. I would love to never hook up a charger again.
I use car battery as well. We have a place here that sells blemished batteries for $40. I use those. They are new.
