You can use any battery that will physically fit -and that has the same voltage rating. I think the 1220 is a 12 volt. So you can use any 12 volt on the market if you can get into the holder. For my Yanmar I built a battery box that fits a standard automotive 12 volt battery. If your battery mounts in front of the radiator you want to keep it as far away from the radiator as possible to avoid restricting air flow. A couple of inches is fine. More distance wouldn't hurt. The difference in starting in cold weather is well worth the time it took to get the automotive battery mounted up right. Plus you can buy a really good quality automotive battery which doesn't seem to be the case with the garden tractor size batteries. I use the Optima "red top" battery and typically get 8 years service out of one.............Roger

Match the BCI group number that may be listed in your operator's manual. This wil insure the physical dimensions and post position of your replacement battery A good battery vendor will look this up for you too. If they can't, shop elsewhere. Match the CCA (Cold Cranking Amp) rating also found in your Op manual. This will guarantee proper cold starting capability. Then you can go shopping for the best deal. Clean all cable connections, including the posts on your new battery and the chassis end of the ground cable. If you match the BCI group (which I think is 24) you will avoid the hassels of modifying brackets because you don't have the right battery.
