    New battery for 445

    What is the best battery to use on my 445?
    I live in northern NY, it gets cold here in the winter.
    My current battery came with the tractor & lasted over 3 years.
    Is it worth the effort to keep it on a trickle charger?

    I have been buying nothing buy Sear Die Hard Platinum batteries. Make sure they are the Platinum ones as those are re-branded odyssey batteries. The warranty on the ones I purchased has been 4 years covered 100%, then after 4 years they cover them by a percentage. So far, I have had great luck with them.

    I agree with Brian. I've heard nothing but good things about the Sears Diehard Platinum/Odyssey batteries. I also belong to a boating forum and the guys rave about those batteries as being one of the best.

    One of the things I didn't like about Deere upgrading the 420/430 to the 4X5 series was the battery. The older tractors used car batteries, while the newer 4X5 use the L&G batteries. I have a 445 myself and I think it will take a group 51 car battery. I want to check that out when it needs a new battery.
