I caught that video over on forumsforums.

Was at my Dad's a couple weeks ago and he too has a Husqvarna tractor sitting all winter. I sat in the seat, pulled the choke and it fired right up.

It wasn't my battery...

On mine, I rotate a trickle charger through all batteries to get them to full charge every couple weeks, year-around.
