Billy: That seams to be the ansure that you run your tractor once a week in the winter, and I just let mine sit for a month some times longer. As I said in an earlyer post it's my falt for not keeping up on the maintenance of the battery by charging it in the winter.
The summer is not a problem because they get plenty of run time.

Heat will have a lot to do with the life of a battery. High heat is just as hard on them as the cold
