720 modifacations, moving the Battery

Recommended Posts

SmilinSam
Here is one that went through my mind this evening. What about building a cross box between the fenders behind the seat and make the crossbox look like a fuel tank on the XT 190's, which is what the 720 looks like anyhow. You could use a narrow battery and run long cables from the back up to the front. Then top it off with a AC decal on the back of it. I think it can be done, clear the 3 point and look good too. Hey Guys , does the idea have merit??

sure, if a single battery of the proper size doesn't have the amp/hour rating check out using two or three batteries of a different form factor. After the battery move will you rotate the tank 90 degrees? Steve

Should work Sam. I assume you are talking about the larger long, narrow batteries like many farm tractors used. I believe they are group 3EH or 4EH, approximately 4" wide, 20" long and 8" high? With those, should be no problem with any amperage lost to the longer cables. Pat

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
