Battery-Case 580 Super K

My neighbor has a Case 580 Super K backhoe that he lets me use. We are having trouble finding a battery that will last a long time. I was thinking a marine battery but I don't know how many cranking amps to get. We tried the recommended battery but it didn't last too long and then used a battery from an old car and that lasted about the same(1-2 years). We replaced the alternator. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Gel battery? Like an optima or something?

Our Gehl telehandler gets a new battery every 4 years or so.

Lots of starting and cold starts will kill batterys

Plus I don't think they are made as well as they once were. At 1-2 years they should still be under warranty.
