    or used you would think in 2017 they would be more reliable . i mean a machine
    anywhere from 100,000 to 250,000 bucks you would think it would be all good .

    and they still go bad in 2 years .

    Honestly, I don't keep stuff around that keeps failing.

    Basically all I buy was extensively researched and I tend to buy the best quality, either made in the US or Germany.

    From commercial grade cooking wear and appliances, to tools usually used in aviation and lab grade electronics equipment.

    Strong believer in "buy once cry once".

    Neck, pressuring nerves creating shoulder and arm problems.

    Get AGM batteries and a Battery Minder (Not a Battery Tender). The BM desulfates batteries, even AGM. I have a few BT's and a BM and the BM keeps all my batteries in top shape. It will even revive some lead acid batteries. All my motorcycles get AGM batteries and last longer than I keep them (2-5 yrs). Unfortunately, I'm down to only 1 dirt bike but the AGM in that is still going strong after 6 yrs on a BM.
