An AGM or absorbed glass mat battery is not dry, it just doesn't dribble liquid electrolyte if ruptured . Excellent in aviation and marine as they won't leak electrolyte if ruptured in a crash or due to vibration. An AGM battery will fail before a flooded cell battery in high temperature applications or if over charged. They will vent fumes if over charged. Longest lasting battery if abused is a low maintenance flooded battery that allows topping up the electrolyte. As for service life? I salvaged a five year old AGM battery from a UPS system where two of four batteries had failed. That battery lasted another 11 years in the old JD 70gas . Batteries, you can get anything from a dud to a Methuselah battery from the same production batch of identical batteries.

"Batteries, you can get anything from a dud to a Methuselah battery from the same production batch of identical batteries."

You got that right, I bought a new diesel pick up in 2001 and about a year into it I had one of the batteries go bad. My mechanic told me it wasn"t a great idea to mix old and new so I had them put both in and took the good one to the farm and put it in my 40s vintage Jeager compressor. Granted it"s a 1000 CCA battery on a flat head Chrysler 6 with a 6 volt starter but it sits for months on end with out being started and often times isn"t run but long enough to pump up the tank so I can air up a tire but it is still hanging in there after 12 years.

Battery in my Oliver was made in 96. I got it in a junk car in 2000.
