He Installed Two Optima 12-Volt 800 Batteries In TractorsDean Hertzler, Veteran, Wyo.: "I installed two Optima 12-volt 800 batteries in several tractors, including a Deere 4050, two Deere 4455's, a Deere 570 road grader, and a Cat 920 loader. You can wire them in series or parallel to get 24 or 12 volts. The machines all start great now with power to spare.
"We installed metal hydride lights in our 40 by 60-ft. shop with three 20-ft. bays. There's one 400-watt overhead bulb and two 250-watt wall-mount bulbs in each bay. They're expensive to purchase, but I can finally see without shadows and dark areas. Makes repairs safer."
