    I just bought a brand new Meyers Sander, 8', 2 yard, 10.5HP B&S, Wireless Controls. The machine did not come with a battery. I asked what size battery to get and two different techs at the dealer told me two different batteries. One Tech said get a group 24 and the other Tech said get a group 25. I bought a group 25 but want to make sure it will be fine before I put it in. Anyone have any advice/ideas. Its a 10.5 HP B&S and will be started and turned off a lot. THANKS

    Hello, What size cables did you use to go from the truck batteries to the spreader battery, and did you run that under the truck along the frame?

    I ran 10g the brigs motor does charge, but never seemed good enough
    Yes I did, and added a connector to it so o could have just unplugged it in the off season
