2 Differences Between a Car Battery and a Tractor Battery

by Sunoj Sharma Welcome to sunoj engineers, we provide a wide rang

A car battery and a tractor battery are two very different variants of batteries, and a farm tractor battery is not amped up by a car battery. There are many fundamental differences between the two, and thus, they vary in their performances as well. The major points of differences between the two are:

  • Service and durability: A farm tractor battery is made to battle the tough weather conditions and rough road/field requirements. It needs higher cranking amps and a deep-cycle that delivers more amp hours. A car battery, on the other hand, works in different conditions and have varying needs for service and durability.

  • Battery Ratings: Car batteries are rated in cold-cranking amps, known as CCA, which is the maximum amount of amps the battery produces while starting the engine. Whereas, tractor batteries are rated in amp-hours (AH). 

The Reason for this Difference

The alternator on a tractor is not able to recharge the battery enough to keep up with the electrical demands of the vehicle. These may be due to aggressive lighting, other electrical accessories, stop and start using, and add-ons being used by the vehicle for long periods. An alternator is a component that keeps the battery charged. Thus, a tractor battery needs to be designed in a way that can deliver deep cycle service as per the farm requirement and in a more rugged manner than a car battery. This makes it better able to deal with the vibration, jolts, and bumps that come with operating farm equipment.

Types of Truck Battery

  • AGM- The technology used in AGM batteries is more sustainable because of the parts which are recyclable. 

  • Lithium-Ion- These are ideal high-performance batteries because they can store more energy than conventional batteries. 

  • Lead Acid: This is a very common option for trucks. It features a lead and acid combination, which stores the electric charge.
