Does OPTIMA Make a Battery for a Zero-Turn Toro?
If you ever have questions about OPTIMA Batteries or chargers, you can always call our toll-free number at 1-888-8-OPTIMA during normal business hours. You can also submit a question here, which we answer in the Power Source blog.
Today's question comes from Edwin:
I wondered if OPTIMA made batteries for lawnmowers? I have a zero-turn Toro, that is about 1.5 years old and uses a motorcycle battery, only bigger.
While our new Digital 400 12V Performance Maintainer Charger signals our entry into the Powersports marketplace, we do not currently offer powersports batteries for motorcycles or lawnmowers.
Proper voltage maintenance is the key to long battery life, regardless of the brand you are using. Whenever any 12-volt battery is discharged below 12.4 volts and left sitting in that state, sulfation begins to form in the battery, which diminishes both capacity and lifespan. That is why we recommend a quality battery maintenance device for any vehicle that doesn't see regular use, especially seasonal vehicles, like lawnmowers, motorcycles and snowmobiles.
We do appreciate your feedback and will certainly forward your inquiry to the appropriate parties.
