    Happy new year

    I picked up a 1992 SW61 but it is missing the battery tray and the Kholer Mv18 doesn't have a pull starter so something's got to be fabbed. The P-O had these long battery leads onboard to temporarily connect them to a battery on the ground :)

    Anyone have any pics in the archives showing where the battery goes?

    The machine:

    Thanks. Think it would interfere with a sulky?

    Not sure. You could always modify the battery holder bracket to accomodate whatever mounting your sulky requires.

    I would modify a platform off the gas tank platform (right hand side standing behind where the operator stands)

    Good buy, by the way
    Looks like it’s in excellent condition for its age

    I could use like 8 of those

    Ya can mayhaps slide the tank over to the left a scosh.
    Get ya a piece of 1/4" plate , drill a couple of mtg holes to line up with the existing two bolts and countersink em fer flat head bolts.
    Or weld it on.
    Fab a battery top hold down strap and clamp the battery down with a couple pieces of all thread.
    You could prolly get by with an oak plank from an old pallet fer the base.

    Looks like the same battery we use on our Saltdoggs


    Number 8 are battery mount brackets, part number 3001363, if you want to go that way, better then bungee cords. I think they are about 15 dollars each. Or some 3/16 angle iron and fab some thing up to keep it on place

    Personally, I would keep it away from (under) the fuel tank, last thing you need is a spark if you have to jump the battery Thumbs Up
