Trickle charger..John,PA

Maybe you should invest in a "trickle charger", especially if the battery is weak.

Our NH skid steer sorta has a old battery. And I did some of the same things that you did with a meter, too. Since we hooked up a charger, never had to replace the battery, yet.

John,PA cheap when it comes to batteries for occassional use.

How did you mount the charger, on the skid steer? And then run the leads out to a receptacle to connect to 120v and plug it in when not in use? My battery is not easily accessed with the panels around it. I need to be especially careful because of the electronic modules on it too.

I attached a 16/2 wire extension cord to the battery terminals. REd to positive, Black to negative posts. Leave the female end on the extension cord.

Leave enough length to the cord to be accessable on the outside of the machine.

Splice the male end of the cord to the end of the charger wires. Red to positive, black to negative. I just sit the charger on a shelf, plugged in to 115 volts.

Sorta like those electric cart arrangements that I use at LOWES, etc.

HTH John,PA You could use 15 amp twist lock electrical ends, if you need to.

I made an extension cord out of a 16/2 cord long enough to reach tractor, got a couple quik diconnects attached to each end, put supplied (with charger) end on battery. Once tractor starts just unplug from tractor end and replug once done. eazy peazy
