Has anyone here had any luck with Tractor Supply batteries? I've bought at least 15 since 06 and just lost the last one. I'm peeved. I have some Napa batteries, not sure how old and they still work. Even Wal-Mart ones I've got with tractors, years old and still work.
I even take them in for the winter and each month I trickle charge them.
What gives with these batteries?

I have had excellent results with WalMart batteries. Some have lasted more than 5-years.

Just want to add no one at the store knows how to properly test a suspected to be bad battery. IT better not show 12v on the meter if you take it back.

Even most bad batterys will show 12v on the meter. its just they don't put out their rated amps any more.

I have not bought any TCS batteries myself. I have been buying the better grade wally world batteries for about 10 years and like them well.
Their selection is a bit limited though.

Is the battery securely mounted ? In my experience, poorly mounted batteries shake and die, regardless of brand. Is your charging system putting out more than 12 volts ? A weak charging system will scrape years off an otherwize ' good ' battery. Excessive charge does the same thing, boils away water, leaving an extra strong acid that eats plates.

I've had outstanding results with TSC batteries. The few bad experiences I've had with batteries from any company have almost always been when I tried to save money by buying a low-priced battery or putting a non-diesel-rated battery (lots of cold-cranking amps but not enough reserve minutes) in a diesel.
