I bought a push mower with electric start at an auction. It's got a
small battery about 3"X5"X2" under a panel. I can not find any
markings on the battery to identify the voltage, but the starter looks
identical to one I had on a riding mower which blew a rod a few years
ago. That rider had a 12 volt garden tractor battery. I assume these
small batteries must also be 12v. But how the heck does one charge
them? There are no terminals on the battery, and I am sure I dont
need to rip it out of that housing every time it needs a charge. On
the top of the mower is a plug that goes to the battery, and up to the
key and starter. All I can figure is that there was some sort of
mating plug that went in to that same wire and connected to a battery
charger. Thats only a guess. This is the first electric start push
mower I have ever seen.
Anyone have any ideas?
sounds like you're missing the trickle charger that came with the
use the brand name to Google for more detail? order a replacement?
use a volt meter to measure the voltage at the plug and buy a small
trickle charger? as small as 1/2 amp would be fine.
call a service shop and ask for cost of replacement charger?
You shouldn't use anything until you're sure of the voltage.
Have you used Google for the brand and model to at least
try to get more info on the battery and possible charger?
what is the brand and model number???
