Flooded Classic® KDZ Locomotive Starting

Our KDZ batteries offer compact and dependable locomotive starting with a four-cell monobloc tray and high-impact polyethylene container. Types KDZ-2701 and KDZ-3001 feature proven reliability and performance, quick engine cranking, high breakaway current, long service life, and heavy duty construction throughout. KDZ-2701 offers large reservoir of electrolyte. KDZ-3001 offers higher capacity per cube.

Features & Benefits

railway power
  1. Monobloc Cells

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

  2. Strong Construction

    Separators of microporous polyethylene material; inter-tray connectors are insulated flexible cable, bolted.

  3. Specs

    Specific gravity (nominal) when fully charged is 1.250 at 77°F (25°C). Electrolyte reserve (nominal) is 2.15" above plates.

  4. Plates

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