We will then place them dutifully on our chargers ( be it smart tenders, or one's we should check once in a while) Right?
And then when spring comes, our chargers and batteries will have lives through yet another happy winter, sitting dutifully on the shelf, wainting for yet another year of service.
WEll, if you are like me, I have too many darned machines to pull every battery, but I try to keep them in service. I lose a couple once in a while, but such is life. No doubt, with the cold coming on throughout our country ( and elsewhere ) that there will be an inundation of questions and answers about whether it is the starter, solenoid, or battery at fault for a tractor's no- start condition.
I aim at clarifying what what are the basics of understanding how to diagnose a good vs. bad battery, with simple tools that are readily at hand, and reasonable cost. I hope you all can chime in for my omissions, but feel free to chime in.
Please keep in mind this is a work in progress, but then again, ain't just about everything....
