Flooded Classic® KDZ Low Maintenance Locomotive Starting

Our Type KDZ-501 battery features proven reliability and performance for excellent cranking capacity to meet the requirements of railroads, while Type KDZ-601 delivers the power you’ll need — no matter the conditions. Designed for 180-day watering intervals with a 16-cell tray that includes a high-impact polyethylene container and cover.

Features & Benefits

railway power
  1. Individual Cells

    Cells are heat-sealed with a high-impact polypropylene cover and EPDM rubber grommet post seal. Plate retainers include horizontally wrapped glass mat and molded-plastic bottom plate shield.

  2. Strong Construction

    Terminals are copper cored; separators use microporous polyethylene material; inter-cell and inter-tray connectors are insulated flexible cable.

  3. Specs

    Specific gravity (nominal) when fully charged is 1.250 at 77°F (25°C). Electrolyte reserve (nominal) is 3.15" above plates.

  4. Plates

    Positive plates — low antimony (4.5%) alloyed lead grids. Negative plates — low antimony (3.2%) alloyed lead grids.
