    Batteries

    Just heard thru the JD grape vine that Deere will no longer offer the dealers "dry batteries ". We used to sell a dry battery, when you buy it, we added acid and charged it. No more. Exide will no longer ship dry batteries under the JD name. A route truck will now deliver batteries wet. Up to the dealer to float charge batteries and keep in stock. Exide will rotate out old stock for fresh batteries. Deere is working to get Exide on a regular schedule to supply dealers with needed stock. We used to be able to order and stock wet and dry.. No more.. Wet only.

    That's probably good news since the dry batteries were more expensive compared to the wet-charged counterpart. Take a look at the 2-series battery below. $148.26 for the dry battery and $115.47 for the wet (not counting core credit). Pity the folks that just walked in and bought the dry battery not knowing there was a wet equivalent.

    Part Number: TY26498
    Part Price: 148.26 USD
    Core Value: (18.00 USD)
    End Price With Core Return: 130.26 USD
    On Hand: 0 Check Other Stores

    Part Number: TY26498A
    Part Price: 115.47 USD

    I'm trying to make sense of this. I suppose there are liability issues, and employee training and certification, that were part of the decision to drop selling dry batteries that were filled in stores by store employees. That said, all the in store batteries I have ever bought came off the shelf with electrolyte already in them. I've never seen a dry battery being filled at time of purchase.

    And, once a dry battery is filled, how long does the store take to charge it to capacity before they install it or let you walk out of the door with it?

    Also, I've never seen any off the shelf batteries being charged in a store. Do stores actully have these batteries on a monitored recharge cycle before they are sold, or do they just depend on turnover to omit this? I do check date of manufacture before I buy an off the shelf wet battery, and I have seen some that were over a year old.

    Just wondering.

    Yes, there are AGM batteries that fit, if that's what you mean.

    The stock 1-series battery, Part Number LV15187 is rated at 500CCA and 600CA. It is a Group 22NF battery, and I have not been able to locate an AGM battery in that group with a better or even close rating. Most 22NF batteries are deep cycle batteries for things like wheel chairs.

    But Group 51R batteries are the same size and are drop-in replacements for the stock battery. There are a lot of Group 51R batteries that pretty well match the Deere stock numbers, but they are not AGM batteries. There are several Group 51R AGM batteries, but they tend to have slightly less cranking amp ratings than the non-AGM counterparts, typically in the mid 400 CCA range. They are also more expensive than the stock lead-acid Deere battery. The exception is the Rural King RK-AGM51R at $124.99.

    Autocraft, Exide, Duralast, Duracell, and Bosch all have Group 51R AGM batteries. I cannot find an Interstate or Optima battery in the correct size. There is an Optima yellow top, but thats a deep cycle battery.

    If you want more than stock battery cranking power, the only AGM one I've found so far is the the XS Power AGM 5100R which is sold by Summit Racing. But it's the most expensive, at $250. It has a 745 cranking amp rating.

    When my replacement time comes, I'm going with one of the slightly less power than stock AGM batteries, since I live in an area where freezing is not common.

    They are fully charged the moment they are filled

    My dealer has always filled them at the time of order, but I didnít really like it too much...they always had electrolyte on top, and I always washed them off with baking soda.
    The upside is they are always fresh.

    JD is actually selling a few AGMís now, and Iím sure the list will keep growing. Itís the wave of the futureókinda. Iím thinking Li technology may eclipse lead acid in the not too distant future.

    Are you sure itís still Excide that makes the strongbox?
    I came accords this mini article, on the Johnson Controls employee portal. There are so many acronyms, I canít figure out what they are talking about
    I know the strongbox spiral wound AGMs are Johnson Controls Optimas...They have an unmistakable look.
    It seems like they play their cards close to the vest when it comes to who makes them.
