    Battery

    The battery in my 2012 1023e died today. I replaced it with a 51r battery like in the picture. Like most batteries, the new one does not have a vent for the vent tube to hook onto. Is that vent tube a critical component for the battery? I realize I probably should have asked this before now... Didn't really think much of it, to be honest since I've never worried about any sort of battery vent before

    Yes, actually it is. The lead-acid battery can leak fumes which can corrode the radiator and associated components. The only way to get around having a vent tube is to use something like a sealed AGM battery.

    Really? So is the JD battery the only replacement option, other than an AGM battery? I didn't see anything in the way of 51 or 22 batteries that had a vent. I just kind of assumed the vent was a JD specific thing

    I had a vent on the original battery in my 4066R that died summer of last year. I replaced it with an AGM battery and no vent is needed for it.

    Why not just get the JD battery for $97.47 and be done with it? You won't have to fabricate a hold-down bracket and it will have the vent tube. Plus it has more cranking capacity than the other two batteries you listed (500 CCA).

    Part Number: TY26498A
    Part Price: 115.47 USD
    Core Value: (18.00 USD)
    End Price With Core Return: 97.47 USD
    On Hand: 4 (Supplier Direct - Contact your dealer for availability) Check Other Stores

    How can the vent tube be critically needed, when 99% of other similar vehicles do not have a vent tube?

    I have never seen corrosion until the battery is close to the end of its life,,,
    If the battery starts leaking around a post (I have seen that) the vent tube would do nothing to stop corrosion,,,

    One reason I can think of is because the battery is located directly in front of the radiator and oil cooler. So they are subjected to any gases that are emitted.

    It happens. My Toyota Highlander battery out-gassed from new and badly corroded the hold-down brackets and air cleaner bolts. I ended up replacing it with an AGM battery. The OP wanted to know if the vent tube is needed and for a lead-acid battery in a JD SCUT/CUT tractor it is.

    I guess one could always install a battery without a vent and report back later if anything bad happened. :-)

    I will just have to call my dealer and see if they'll take off the $18 core charge since I already left my old battery at Rural King. Otherwise, I'm sure Rural King will let me exchange it for the AGM. Also, I did not have to fabricate anything for the 51 to fit. It is VERY slightly shorter, but that's about it

    I have found the batteries marketed by John Deere to typically be of very good quality and their longevity has been excellent. Moreover, I have found the local dealer's pricing to be very competitive. You may want to consider these factors as well as the operating specifications that jgayman reported.
