the battery is dead on our riding mower. We cant afford a new one and
it's too late in the year to buy one anyhow. I checked the water
level and it's filled. How can I rejuvinate it? What would happen if
I put two battery chargers on it. Would the extra voltage rejuvinate

charger or the other and they might damage the battery causing acid
Make sure your charger is working properly. If it is then just buy
a new battery. Why would you suggest it is too late in the season to
replace a battery?

If you don't want to replace it now, just use the charger to start it
each time for the rest of this season. Then buy a new one in
Spring. Make sure you put a battery tender on it during winter
storage. Letting this type of battery discharge over winter is a
leading cause of premature failure.

Dump out the acid and try to shake out some sediment and go buy
battery acid, it may not work but I know a farmer who tried it and
said it helped a bit. But first check voltage your charger puts out, a
battery needs 13.3v to be charged maybe your charger is no good,
forget 2 chargers. a fully charged battery will stabilise at around
12.8v www.batteryuniversity.com has the info. or jump it to use it.

Thats what I wanted to do but the battery is under the seat and seat
dont go down with jumper cables under it. Mower wont start unless
seat is down and someone is sitting on it (some safety bullshit). You
cant even start the goddamn thing with battery charger clips under the
seat. This mower was either designed by an idiot, or the owner of a
The price of $18 at Walmart may have been that in 1965.
The last time I looked at Walmart the mower batterys were about $50,
and that's hard to afford on a fixed income when every cent we get
goes to pay for medicines, gasoline and heating fuel, and get $60 a
month for foodstamps in order to eat.
