Deep cycle batteries often have a 20 hour rating and a 5 hour rating but seldom a rating for a faster discharge then that.
Starting batteries on the other hand are designed for quicker bursts over a shorter amount of time, so I've often wondered if for a high discharge use, like a snow blower, would a starting battery be better?
