 Anyone use an Optima battery in their JD tractor?

Has anyone here installed an Optima or other AGM battery in their 10 series JD tractor? I'm looking for the part number of an AGM battery that will replace the standard JD battery LVA11725. The guys at AutoZone were most unhelpful and the Optima website doesn't have an application match for my 4310 tractor. I also emailed Optima but they haven't responded after a couple of days.

I get all of my odd batteries at BatteriesPlus. They have never failed to have what I need for my fork lift or any other odd application. They carry Optima and have an 800 number on the website. (link below)

We used Optima batteries in the Baja race cars with good results.

Wouldn't one of those Delco Freedom batteries be just as good? They are a sealed battery, so nothing can leak on your tractor's radiator or trans cooler.

Just a thought. Might be cheaper than an Optima.

Billy;
The Delco Freedoms are vented batteries and will leak if overcharged etc.
The Optima are valve regulated batteries where then acid is held in a glass fiber matt. The matt is not fully saturated so acid will not necessarily leak even if the case is damaged.
The plates are under high pressure so that the paste stays on the plates even if they are pounded around.

Billy, thanks for your recommendation. I'm not being very logical here, but due to terrible experiences I prefer not to buy any products from GM or their affiliates. There are good reviews of Delco Freedom batteries on the web, and they may well be great batteries, but I have a problem feeding the machine that screwed me.

Ken, our tractors take a wierd group size battery and it is the ONLY one that will fit. My computer eat the book marks I had for the batteries I found that will work. Let me research it again and I will get back to you. I think the battery group size is NF but I need to go back and verify. CRS is hell! Wink yeah right

Don't sweat it Chief, and there's probably no need to go to any trouble. I've sent emails to BatteriesPlus and Exide to see if they have something that fits. Exide makes AGM batteries too.

Ken the battery group size is 22NF. Do a google search for that size and you will see some sealed type batteries. I already checked; Optima does not make that size and the battery requires special tie down lugs on the side and that specific size to fit in front of the trans. oil cooler. I will post some links when I find them.
