I bought 2 new group 1 6 volt car batteries at Sams Club today for 42 dollars each plus the refundable core charge. This seems much lower than I have paid in the past for 6 volt Model T batteries. At that price i am replacing my old batteries. Here is a link.
Wow Dave, that is a DEAL!! Almost double that cost at parts stores around here.
Just checked availability / pricing here in Lansing, MI. $79 here...
Hmmm. I don't need a battery right now, but even if I did I would be out of luck....
"ONLY AVAILABLE IN AL, CT, DE, FL, GA, IL, IN, KY, MA, MD, ME, MI, MS, NC, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, RI, SC, TN, VA, AND WV"
Same here in northern Ohio...$79.

Dick, IL is just a bridge away.
Six volt batteries are often lower priced at a farm supply than at the parts stores. I think the last one I got at the local Orscheln was about $60. Not as good as the Sam's club deal, but not bad. If you need one, check Fleet & Farm, TSC, Orscheln, or whatever farm supply is in your area.
Bud and Steve, yes... I realized that after I posted and looked more closely at the list. Still, I don't need a battery so even the Sam's Club deal is an unnecessary $42 expenditure. Oh, well.
I buy mine at Fleet Farm.
Is it the same battery or is the $42 job lower cranking amps? Perhaps there's not much call for them and their dumping stock that doesn't move.
For goodness sake do check the date codes. I got pickled good when I bought the weird long 12 volt battery I put in my 47 pontiac because it was the first 1 on the shelf to reach. It was several months old and did not last long. Sometimes the shelf time of a battery on sale is long and that is why they lower the price,to move them.
Lookalike ago od deal, unfortunately not in califunny

Tony...were you in the suds before you wrote that?
Here in Tn. 79 bucks, bought an
Exide today for 72 tax and all. KGB
My luck with Exide batteries is: ZiLCH, NADA, ZERO, BAD.
Is the cheapest price always the best?? When i bought a large pair for the diesel pick up they had a good price and warranty but when i bought for the 5'th wheel the warranty was not as good.I think some are now made in china and we all know that brings!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
Sounds like "Cheapskate Engineering" to me...
I have no idea who makes the Country Tuff batteries for Orscheln, but they last OK for me, and start up a six volt truck or tractor with no trouble. I agree with Mack. Do check the date before you buy.
Well, at the risk of joining the argument, I have all sorts of old tractors and equipment that use 6 volt batteries. The best I have found in recent years, bar none, are from Batteries Plus. $75 installed with a full TWO year non-prorated guarantee. I have been firing up tractors that sat over the last winter and every 6 volt battery from BP is up and started the tractor.
If it sounds too good to be true, it is. I was at the Knoxville, TN
Sams today. They have the same Durocell 6V battery in stock at $79. Checked at the customer service counter and the internet price is also $79.
Stan - "Batteries Plus" here in Tacoma is a very busy place, right near Tacoma Mall. Maybe that is the key,.....a very busy place that does a lot of business and sells a lot of batteries, hence good inventory turnover and FRESH batteries,...???
