Lesson in deffered maintainence: 

My family has a 1950s bulldozer. It has 2 batteries ('couse it's a 24v system) which are about 16 years old. These old batteries died today when we needed it most. See, we were cutting down a tree, when internal pressures in the tree trapped the saw. The dozer was the only thing we had powerful enough to pull the tree down. But, because the batteries were dead, we were left with an expensive saw, stuck in a dangerous half cut tree. Lesson learned.
