The plastic liners in the battery boxes do help keep the nasty stuff from
rotting the steel, however.
Unless that hydrostatic transaxle really sucks power from the motor, I don't
see any need for AGM batteries. While I've heard of peaks in the 350-400
amp range on ETs, my low power gel batteries are good for maybe 200a without
sagging, and I've never noticed excessive voltage sag.
I think golf car batteries would be an entirely acceptable and cost
effective choice for the OP. Just make sure the battery boxes are well
coated or lined to prevent corrosion.>>>>
, Yes golf car batteries would give longer run time if that's whats needed
and they are cheeper ,,,, But you will need 6 instead of 3 to get your 36v .
Both will do the job.
