    Largest capacity battery the 1025r with a 55-amp generator ???

    What is the largest, most CCC capacity battery for the 1025r with a 55-amp generator ???. I am new to SCUT's and am thinking about mounting a winch (10,000 lbs) to the 1025r. This thing needs a lot of battery power.

    Thank you in advance.

    The 500CCA battery supplied with the machine is the biggest that will fit in the battery holder. It is what it is. Cannot find anything that firs and has more.

    How many amps will the winch you are going to use draw at 12 VDC. That is the question that needs to be answered. If you have a 55 amp alternator on your 1025R, your shouldn't work the alternator contiually above about 40 amps of output. So, if you have a 1/2 hp winch, the winch will draw about 31 amps at 12 VDC. This would bo doable with your alternator as long as you do not have the lights turned on.

    Essentially, you really don't want to run an assessory that draws more than you alternator output is. This will draw down you battery and batteries are not designed to be used this way unless it is a deep cycle battery.

    Why do you need a 10k winch on a 2k tractor? If your pulling something that heavy-you'll just move the tractor and not the object.

    Unless you chain the back of the tractor to your pickup truck. LOL!! OH, then you may as well put the winch on the truck to start with!!

    Would be interesting to test that out.... Chain the truck to an immovable object, chain the subcompact tractor to the truck, attach that 10k winch cable (on the tractor) to something REALLY heavy and then see what gives first.

    A) The immovable object?
    B) The Truck
    C) The SCUT
    D) The Winch Cable

    Let's video that. Would probably be like those chain strength testing videos on Kenny's website!

    Several years ago I had a buddy of mine that wanted me to bring my winch-equipped Jeep over to drag a shipping container across the ground. First question was "What capacity is your winch?". "8000 lbs." "Well, the container weighs less than that." "But my Jeep weighs less than the container." "We can put a tow strap between your Jeep and my Jeep - that way combined, they outweigh the container." "Uh... NO!!!"

    A 10K winch is going to draw around 200 amps. I think that is a bit much for a small tractor, but it depends upon how often it is used. Once a week for a few minutes isn't going to be a problem but if it used daily, or multiple times a day then I think your battery is going to need to be replaced more frequently.

    The alternator is not an issue, unless the winch is used so often that the alternator is not given time to replace the charge used up by the winch. Which I would for allow about ten minutes for every minute of winch use, preferably more.

    I would definitely consider a smaller winch that doesn't hit the battery so hard.

    Another option is to look into AGM deep cycle batteries. They can be installed in any orientation so it may be possible to find a much larger one that will fit on end in the battery tray - and they are better suited to being drawn down than a starting battery. You would need to find a way to secure it of course.
