Huskee Voltage?

My father-in-law inherited a 16 HP Huskee lawn tractor, and I've been tasked with bringing it back to life. It has a fairly new battery on it, but is dead.

My question is what is the voltage so I can try to charge it? 6 or 12? I can find nothing on the websites I've found about those tractors.

I haven't seen the thing yet, and it ran last May according to the widow he got it from. The thing is, it's 150 miles from here, and I'd like to have as much info as possible when I finally start to work on it.

Thanks in advance.

It's a 12 volt battery. Lawnmower batteries seem to last on average around 2 years if used regularly. I think I'd plan on having to install a new one ($25) and carry a can of carburetor cleaner in case the fuel has varnished the carb, or water has gotten into it if it's outside. Huskee is made by MTD, and sold by tractor supply stores.

Thanks Cheese, that's what I needed. Not a bad idea just to go ahead and clean the carb, I'm sure it hasn't been looked at since they assembled it.

Thanks again.
