Supposed to be going to the lease tomorrow and help my dad with putting corn in feeders, getting game cameras ready, etc...

He went today and just called and said the battery is dead in the Mule FXT...

Anyone know what size/kind of battery it uses? There is not a mule dealership anywhere near me, hopefully I can pick up something that will work at autozone, tractor supply, etc...

TIA!

Most auto parts stores should have a book for looking up the battery that will work for it. I avoid autozone like the plague. If its not on their computer screen, those folks are useless.

Just a heads up, but some of those atv/utv/motorcycle batteries do not come filled from the factory and will need to be filled and charged prior to use.

I got my last one at Home Depot. There was some confusion about the return and they just gave it to me free.

Aren't the FXT batteries typical car/truck batteries or are they a special Kawi type?

They are just a lead acid battery.
I've used batteries from lawn mowers, motorcycles, gas golf carts, etc. in Mules and Rangers as long as they fit in the battery box.
I am using a battery from a Harley dresser in mine right now and it has excellent cranking amps on cold mornings.

There are new Lithium-Ion batteries available that are supposed to last 7-9 years and are around 100 bux.
I think Battery Tender has one available under their brand.

I think the mule and big jd gator have the same engine. You can probably find a jd dealer and pay to much
