About 5yrs ago I bought one of those Optima batteries (6V) and wow what a battery. More Power, no leakage, can mount upside bown or in any position, and will probably last twice as long. Bill

I also bought an Optima Battery about 5 years ago for my pickup and as WKPoor says you cannot beat them for starting power and durability. I paid $135.00 for it and dont regret the expense as I figure it will outlast 3 lead-acid batteries. Also there is never any battery post corrosion with these Gel-Cell types. I did not know they made them in the 6-volt version, I will have to check into that for my next tractor battery.
Then came Bronson
