Not just good, very good. Lawn or farm tractors really beat up on batteries because of vibration. If I get 3 years out of an average priced battery, I think I'm doing OK.

I agree. That battery belongs in a museum when it finally dies.

I'd say excellent! Three years would be typical, 5 years would be outstanding, 7 years is fenominal. Vibration, sitting unused for weeks at a time during the winter and small size all hurt these guys as far as achieving a long life.

jHOWARD is just hunting for praise of his maintenance techniques...lol j/k!

Although jH...I noticed you said "lasted" not "has lasted"...is it gone now?

I agree though, I've never had ANY battery (car, M/C or tractor) last that long!
