drill battery replacement

Post by jimbo » Mon Sep 19, 2011 10:26 am


So I have just killed my drill batteries (Kress PAH 240) and replacements cost over 2 grand each. Can anyone give me advice on how to build a replacement battery for cheaper, eg using a motor bike battery etc.

Malcolm Gowans and I just replaced our battery and it cost about that. He has used the moto/ house alarm batteries in the past. Give him a call,
