battery cannot sulphate (and sulphation has nothing to do with vibration - which is what the question was about)

also, put the removed one on a trickle charge and see if it holds a charge. that way if the tractor doesn't keep the new battery recharged you won't have discarded the old battery by mistake. things to do: you could download the manual for the tractor. you could find out with your multimeter what the battery voltage should be parked versus running volts as measured at the battery. for example, a car used to be 12.6 volts parked, and 13.8 volts running, easily measured at the cigar lighter socket.

the battery is charged by the stator (an alternator of sorts) under the flywheel.

It's very easy to use the starting motor to generate enough electricity to charge a small battery of the sort in the lawn tractor.

Actually, the TRUTH is, it is a lot easier to use agenerator as a starter on a small single cyl engine. The "starterator" is much more a modified generator than a modified starter.

Modern small engines have a rotor and stator underneath the flywheel that generate the electricity.
