Battery question

Recommended Posts

mark64
I have looked almost everywhere in town for a new battery for my B112 with no luck. Seems no one's book goes back that far, NAPA said bring in the old one and they can try to match it. I figured somebody here will know the correct battery # for it. Thanks in advance. Mark

I picked up a 22 from NAPA and it fit's decent. I had to laugh when he sait it was $52 with my company discount, or $77 without it. Seems like alot of money for a garden tractor battery. I hope it will lasts a few years. Mark

It has to do with volume of the battery, not the market. It's not a high volume merchandise item and therefore is a little more pricey.

The 22NF was the original battery spec'd for these tractors -- the poles are reversed from a regular Type 22... The 22NF is a special order around my house, and close to $60 -- that's why I use the $39.95 Type 51R...

I run Sears DieHard garden tractor batteries in all mine, seem to fit fine and the oldest one is now 5 years old. Guess I could be considered a little bias though, haven't bought anything but diehards since 1970, anything that can crank my truck 318 at -60 and yes, even at -70, is good enough for me. Engine is plugged in with two block heatters and a glue on oil pan heatter but they don't wqarm the battery any.
