Hi all, sorry I haven't been on lately. Just wanted to let you know, Maggie and I haven't left the planet. We've been working. Keeps me out of trouble. I haven't done anything with restoration. Haven't had time. Question, if I'm not going to use the tractor much or any this winter, should I remove the battery and keep it in a heated area? I don't normally do this with my other equipment but I'm wondering if I should start. Suggestions welcome, thanks. Bwinkle

I would leave them in and put a trickle charger on them once in a while.

I always take mine out. Charge them and put them in a 40 to 50 degree place on a piece of wood. Then recharge them a few weeks before use again. But, if you want to use the tractor some, the before mentioned is a good idea. Me, I would forget to charge them, once in a while. Just my thought, Noel.

They say to keep batteries in a cool place, and for whatever reason its no longer necessary to put them on wood  but I still do .
