John Deere LA120 Battery Recharging

16 years ago

I have not used my tractor in several weeks. When I went to crank it, the starter would not turn over, but was really hot to the touch. My lights would work and the battery charger showed that the battery was good. I determined that the battery must not have enough juice to turn the starter motor. After a 2amp, 1 hour maintenance change the mower was able to start. Do the LA120 series tractors have an "alternator"? Do the batteries need periodic recharging?
