That's a big boy. I've had a small Schumacher for 15+ years that's been trouble free. You could get away with a small one unless you need the starting feature.

Battery Charger


I have a small wards charger that I have used for years. But lately I have had to jump start dead battery and no time to charge it. The veh has a lot of equipment on it that is supposed to shut down on its own. Schumacher used to be a good brand, but now I don't know.

Nothing is made like they used to. I just bought a new Schumacher that auto shuts off when the charge is complete. Haven't tried it yet. Hopefully it isn't garbage. I think you'll be OK with it.

you should make sure you get the right battery charger for the battery you have.


IMO, the best charger you can get for a vehicle is a trickle charger.

I have a trickle charger for the lawn tractor and a float charger for the ATVs. I have a charger with 50amp boost up north in the barn for the plow truck.

I gave $30 for a small charger probably ten years ago and still use it.

Yes its a good battery charger. But its probably overkill. Unless your a auto mechanic.
