John Deere back from the dead

I started our riding lawnmower this afternoon.MJF_0567

Not because I was going to use it, just to make sure that 24 hours on the battery charger did its job. It did. The engine on the John Deere LA125 fired right up, filling the garage with heavy exhaust fumes.

I hadn’t run the mower for probably four months and the battery was stone cold dead when I checked it yesterday.

I don’t plan to mow for another three months or so, but I want it to be able to climb aboard the dealer’s trailer when it comes to take the little tractor in for its spring tune-up.
