I run a series 29(?) auto battery.. I modified a rear bumper and welded a "battery box" on it.. I've never had a problem with the ac 400 at 16 amps charging system, charging the 500 CCA(could be more...I'd have to Look) battery I use for plowing, starting, HID's and hand warmers... I always wanted to run a deep cycle but haven't had the ambition to swap out the battery.... nor the cash.... The added weight of the battery over the rear axle helps much with plowing....
keep in mind with just plowing, running no lights or warmers, the charging system should handle it.... your not gonna run the wnich continuios only sporaticly.... so your not taxing the charging system at full load for any duration....
the charging system doesn't care if it's a 100 CCA Power wheels battery or a 1000 CCA Super Deep Cycle Marine battery... it'll charge it...
at any rate, I do periodically check the full load draw of the battery, and test the max output of the charging system at least twice a year... no problem thus far.. been 4 seasons of plowing....
