Found this while searching for batteries to buy, lots of info here on golf cart batteries.
Thought some might find it useful.

Doug, I was told by 'matts' to buy golf cart batteries at Sam's Club for around 400 dollars . However, I don't know if you have one up there or not. I also bought a golf cart charger for my E20 for when I upgrade the batteries.

Sam's club up here all shut down a couple yrs ago, they were the cheapest at the time "US 2200 6volt" for $60. a piece.

That stinks Doug, cause that was what I heard the price of batts was, $60 a piece.
Now, I remember you saying in a PM once that you had four 6 Volts already, just needed two more, what happened to that plan?

Ya, I can understand that. I am going to sell some tractors off and start funding the ones I really care about, such as the E20, the Caterpillar, Electric Springfield, and a couple of Springfield restoration projects. I have so many machines incapacitated right now I don't even know what to do to fix that... I know what to do, just too cheap to do it lol. I would love to get the E20 redone, it really deserves it.

I've got some small parts on order and found a good used steering shaft that's on it's way to.
Trying to get batteries, hard to get to the supplier, mon to fri, 9 to 5 when you work those hrs, hoping to do a delivery for work near them so I can pick them up. Got a new set for $110. plus tax no core charge, best I could find.
Hoping to meet with the guy I bought the tractor off of this weekend to see if he has the right bracket and the missing parts I need to get the mower deck and snow blower mounted properly.
Time will tell if all this happens.

No I forgot about that.
Flea market was good busiest I've see it, 2 for 1 draw sold out, $30,000 for 1 day, they have 1 for all 4 days.
Lots of stuff there just boils down to what your into.
