I have been hearing this argument for over 60 years, and have never seen a legitimate, professional answer.
As a result, I have tried it both ways, and have come to my own conclusions:
The system I have adopted after years of personal experience is to:
This has worked well for me. Good luck.
Mercury wants you to install a battery with at least 525 marine cranking amps if you boat in the summer, and 1000 marine cranking amps for winter boaters.
No. This myth comes from two places. One, the cold of the concrete ruins the batteries storage ability. If that was true every battery would need replaced after every cold winter night. Two, the electricity leaks out of the battery because the concrete provides completed circuit. If that was true then why are batteries stored on metal shelves at part stores and car dealerships. Steel is a much better conductor than concrete.
During winter when the concrete contracts/shrinks and there is no gap, then it will crack from the surface. So gaps are left in concrete such that it can shrink to a safe limit without cracking it.
in the winter
It expands in the summer and contracts in the winter.
Remove it from the tractor and store it in a non-freezing location on dry wood boards. Do NOT store it on the concrete floor.

A marine climate will generally be cooler in summer and milder in winter and a continental climate will be hotter in summer and colder in winter.

Not it it is a good battery. I suggest if you are going to let it set for an entire winter, disconnect the positive battery cable. It should be fine if it is a good battery that is fully charged. You might want to put a charger on it next spring just before trying to start the engine after you reconnect the positive cable.
No. Freezing a battery will damage it. have you tested it? The worst environment for any battery is COLD. That is why there are so many problems with car batteries in the Winter. If the electrolyte in the battery freezes, it will usually expand and crack the battery case or distort the plates in the battery
