I wonder who makes them for Rural King? There are only a few major battery makers.

Home Depot does carry automotive batteries, by the way, and for what I consider to be a fair price.

Following your thread, I made a point of looking at them last night and I didn't see any 51 series but I did see some suitable batteries there, provided you're not too hung up on getting something the perfect size.

Cheers,

Yea, but those ones above are AGM's and at that price I would snatch a couple or more since I have gensets that use them also. I never even heard of Rural King.

I was in Walmart tonight and there is a line of batteries.. I forget the name that many were $48.. The batteries said made by Johnson Controls. I did not find a match to the 51R the other brand Ever something.. the 51R was $107.

For less than $100 more, I'd go with a pair of the AGM batteries. As Fil said, none of the downside issues of lead/acid batteries to deal with.
As a side note, while at Rural King, head over to the food section and grab a jar of "Amish Wedding" (Troyer Foods) brand Jalapeno Pickled Eggs. You can thank me later.

Well I was wondering who makes them for Rural King and I think I have my answer, I looked a little further into their inventory and they also carry Exide. One of the largest battery makers in the world.

But at those prices, even for the Exides, I may make a side trip this year to Front Royal, Va. when I go to the Virginia Rally to pick up some batteries!
