I have been getting 2 to 3 seasons on most of mine. I don't take them out or trickle charge them over the winter. If I did, probably could get 3 to 4 seasons. Had one mower with a bad voltage regulator and only got about 5 months. I always carry a spare battery.
I believe my grandfather still has the OEM battery in his 1992 wheelhorse, always tricklecharged exc
but in most other newer equipment I dont se a reason why a LT battery wont go atleast 2-3 seasons
I'm not sure how long they last but mine get replaced after 3 seasons. The last thing I need to happen is to try to start a mower and the battery is dead. BTW, I believe the best battery you can buy is the Deka Outdoorsman. The outgassing is virtually non-existant making battery post cleaning a bi-annual job.
same as the above 2-3 seasons.
3 to 4 years if am lucky,where do you buy a deka outdoorsman
Click "Where to Buy" in the upper left corner of the page.
When you get the name of the distributor nearest to you call them and see who sells them locally.
if properly maintained they should last 20 years!
You must have some very smooth lawns! The plates usually start to separate after about 3-5 seasons of bouncing around, leading to a battery's demise. Gel filled are probably better. It's too bad Optima doesn't make a lawn mower battery - they have no plates to seperate.
