Start batterys on sale.
« on: March 14, 2016, 07:23:53 PM »
My start batteries have been acting like they were on their end of service life. Always started but dragged just a little this last week on a short trip. I was thinking it was time to replace them. Well my mind was made up for me when I walked into my local Freightliner shop. AKA Premier Truck Group They had a stack of original equipment start batteries on sale for $69.00. I bought two before anything else. I thought this was a pretty good deal as they normally go for $179.38 ea. They are rated CCA @ zero 925 CA @ 32-f 1110 Reserve Capacity 170.
I don't know if they are running this at all Freight liner shops but it might be worth looking if you are going to be in need of new start batteries.
I went down and installed them this afternoon.
I wasn't clear on the date code, so I checked when I took my old batteries in for core refund. Date code (B6) translated to February 2016.
