We have an older Max 5000 that possibly has a dead battery (rotating part). In the past we sent it back to Canada with a heafty charge of both repair and shiping. Is there anyone closer who is equipped to repair or change the battery. Is this battery replacement something that an owner can do? How do we know what battery type this is should we be able to do it.

we replaced our battery ourself.The battery is a very odd shaped 12 was like 3-4 inches tall and 2-3 inches wide and 8-10 inches long.We had to but it at a special store that just sells batteries.Feed stories and home depot didnt have them.

Real easy to do take the three screws that secure the top and bottom. Clip the zip tie and take the old one to a battery store they will either have one or tell you where to get one. I used Interstate battery for my last set.
