Flooded Classic® Locomotive Starting

The GNB Flooded KDZ-501 and KDZ-651 Unitized Locomotive Starting Batteries are designed to maximize starting power through low internal resistance. This means excellent cranking capacity for locomotive starting. In addition, the incorporation of more electrolyte in each cell increases the amount of time between battery watering by 50% and lowers the annual cost of battery maintenance.
