Time for new batteries
Suggestions? What's in there is a group 27, I think.

The local Kenworth dealer sells them at a very low price, worth checking out your local dealer for 900CCA.

I installed 2 -900cca batteries in my first gen from CASE tractor, they are from a skidsteer/backhoe, they are built for vibration and a lot of bouncing around, just like a first gen. They're not maintenance free, which I prefer. Up here, they were $120.00 each (cdn).

Interstate batteries have always been good for me.

I have one of these in my polaris sportsman, its a beast for a power sports battery. When I need one for my truck, its getting an odyssey.

Finally got round to it after it died again from sitting for a month and a half. Got a couple of O'Really's 840 CCA group 27s for $300 for the pair. One of the old batteries was a 7 year old reman, the other an Exide with unknown years on it. I fried my multi-meter trying to check the voltage drain, but I had it on the wrong setting. That will give me an excuse to by a Fluke.

Glad you got it taken care of. I use Interstate Batteries

The only 2 Interstate battery dealers in the area don't stock anything. But they'd be happy to order a couple for me plus a couple hundred dollars in hazmat freight. It's the same old story, buy what they have on the shelf or pay out the ear on shipping. At least the pair I got had the same and resent (April) manufacture date.
