When I absolutely will not be using a machine over a period of a few months, I remove the battery put it in a warmer area with a "Battery Tender" on it and keep an eye on the tender to ensure that it is operating. I also make sure that the battery is on a piece of wood if it is on a concrete floor. If I am going to start the machine every so often, I leave the battery installed and put a Battery Tender on it between run ups. Cold really weakens a battery and if they run down(discharge) they can freeze and burst.
I'm always working very diligently to discover the obvious.
