Thread: New house bank

    Re: New house bank

    One Deka 8D sealed FLA at Pasco was $198.00 last weekend. Hard to beat that I think.

    You guys certainly have a good point but not sure where I can hire someone so most likely would have to do it myself.

    I was actually thinking of something like 3 24ís in each box for a start bank. What about 6 volt golf cart batteries for a house bank? Thought someone would mention that.

    I figured if I said that, someone would chime in that they are deep cycle batteries and not starting batteries. 66 lbs each.

    We have some purists who object to golf cart batteries, but everyone who has tried them, including myself, has been satisfied. Mine are six years old and start the 8v71tis easily. Four of them fit perfectly in one original battery box.

    Put an AD on Facebook market place for one or two to move heavy batteries for 1
