A Taylor Dunn Battery Must Be High Capacity to Survive
Often a Taylor Dunn utility cart will be used to haul a heavy load. Because of the stress placed on the batteries, we only recommend the high capacity deep cycle batteries with a 260 ah rating.
Frequent battery charging is necessary to maintain the life of your deep cycle batteries. The taylor dunn battery charger may be on-board or portable and will only perform one charge cycle before turning off, even if the charger is left plugged in. The OE charger will not maintain the battery pack voltage indefinitely. Quick Charge does make a battery charger that will also maintain the battery pack and we stock them for that reason.
