    Amps. You've got a 12 volt system (most tractors, too). It's the AMPS that give cranking power.

    The battery CCA is what you need to pay attention to. Most vehicle use a 12 volt battery. If the tractor has a different battery voltage you still need the correct cold crank amperage rated battery.

    Both.  You need a battery that can give a lot of juice (amps) but that battery will be worthless if it does not match the electrical system voltage of the tractor.

    What you need to be concerned with is the CCA (Cold Crank Amp) rating of the battery. Semi trucks need at least 900CCA to fire up. So if you get a 1200CCA battery that should do the trick. If a 1200CCA won't turn it over something else is wrong like the motor is frozen or some other part connected via belt is stopping it from turning over.

    There is ONLY one acceptable voltage for any given vehicle. Amps is what can vary.

    Amps, or more correctly, the cold cranking amp (CCA) rating.

  • What's measured in volts and what's measured in amps? Look that up and you'll have the answer to your question.
