Does any one have any experience on using these on tractors in a shed with no electricity during the winter in Mn? Dave

if you start with a good battery, charged and clean top, and then disconnect a cable and hookup the solar charger.. you should return to a good bat. the solar cell will top off the self discharge.. etc.

I am all in favor of solar panels and use them in a couple of applications, but reading your post, if you have a good battery in your tractor at a remote location and simply disconnect it after the last use in the fall (to prevent ANY parasitic drain) it will survive quite well and start the tractor when re-connected in the spring.

Or, take it home with you and keep it warm all winter, then re-instal it when you go back to the outlying area next spring..

I've a couple of panels that VW uses when they ship cars. They're about 12"x14" and attach to the inside of the windshield with 4 suction cups. They then plug into the lighter socket. I don't know the current produced but they work on several pieces of eqpt I have in west central MN. My older son was a tech for VW and they'd throw them out when they prepped the cars. He brought a couple home and they still work. I did hook 4 together and used them to keep a 12v fencer going in a remote pasture for a couple of years
