Just google L-ion battery. I think you can get one that just weighs 10 pounds that will start your tractor. Kinda pricey though, and you will need their charger, also kinda pricey also. but whats a 1000 dollars to save 20 pounds. :-) Vic

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

That same arguement can be waged against most of tractor pulling.

spending 10's of thousands to drag a stone boat or Xfer sled with a hopped up tractor versus a stock one.

Even stock tractor pulling isnt cheap when you factor the fuel, the trailer, the tow rig, chain tie downs, etc etc.

Spending an extreme amount for a light weight battery is one thing, but I don't see what it has to do with cheating.

If you're running an alternator, you could use a small lawn mower battery just for ignition and jump from a larger battery to crank.

We use a lawn mower battery on our JD G. It works just fine. We don't use a alternator but just charge it as needed. We also use one on our Ford 600 with the 192 engine. It starts just fine and it carries 225 lbs of compression. We've done this for years.
