AC 7045 battery

Anyone know how many CA or CCA a tractor this size needs to start? I'm not in a very cold area, about an hour from Dallas. One of the batteries on my tractor died and I was wondering if I could replace the two with one big one or if it really needed two. If I need two I'll also have to have a new custom cable made as the one on it is not in good shape, for one battery I can buy one off the shelf. I've got all the service manuals but they aren't much help as far as cranking amps needed.

Sticking with 2 would still be best. The heat is hard on them as well.

I have 2- 750CCA batteries on my Ram.

Hadn't thought about that, it does get hot here and that's mainly when it gets used.
