 Has anybody had any experience with the batteries used in electric milk floats?

 I have a milk depot about 1/2 mile away and might enquire what they do with here old! retired batteries, i would assume they are some sort of wet cell probable similar to forklift rated at c8 so could be ideal.

 Any milkmen or ex-mikmen out there who drive or use to drive leccy milk floats?
