Looks to be an 850. They were designed as a battery charging generator. Originally they were hooked up to 16 glass jar batteries to run small farming operations. Use 2- 12v & an 8v battery if you want to try and run it.

Why not use 4-8 volts? that would keep the sizing simple, all 4 would be the same!

Why not use 3 12V lawn & garden batteries, the light plant doesn't mind and they are wayyyy cheaper than 8 volt.
