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.
After many years of requests, OPTIMA finally introduced a line of ORANGETOP powersports batteries, that will fit just about every Toro zero turn riding mower on the market. They should be available starting in late-Spring of 2023, just in time for the start of mowing season!
Our Digital 400 12V Performance Maintainer Charger signaled our entry into the Powersports marketplace, because proper voltage maintenance is the key to long battery life, regardless of the brand of battery 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.
