Default Battery price

I came across a 6 volt group 1 battery today at a local farm store. The manufacturers sticker date of 5/19. For $47.99. It’s been on my mind. What’s your opinion. Would you buy it?

I forgot to mention my battery is 8 years old

Those are the only ones I use for our antique cars w/ 6V. $45 at Farm King and Farm and Fleet.

With Tom Wesenberg's EVR on a stock generator you can run 7-8 years on them no problem, diode cutout or original cutouts.

Yep, that's a good price these days, and my Fleet Farm 6 volt batteries last more than 10 years.
