Re: Can I charge SLA batteries with an Alternator?

Update: 7-12-2004<p>I took the mower apart and am making a frame that will allow me to adjust the height of the deck.<p>I took a video of the mower before I took it apart.
I will need to shrink it down before putting it on the web site.<p>http://www.stuartmperry.com/rc-mower/mower3.htm<p>
