    Good thinking. That was a very close call. There's more than a bit of foreboding in your signature line David.

    I like that you left the 2 cables separate. Much easier to use when they're separate, especially when trying to get to a ground that's not near the battery.

    I jumped a buddies car in the school parking lot one time with a coat hanger. a single coat hanger..

    pulled bumper to bumper, unfolde dthe hanger, use a knife to scrape the white paint off 2 end and used vice grips to hold them on.

    started m car and let it run 10 minutes then hit his.

    it starter, and smoked all the paint off the coat hanger..

    Yup thats a rip calling them HD thats no better than speaker wire but have you seen the adds on TV with the cigarette lighter jumper setups talk about BS!!!

    Some people will believe anything they are told.

    Fact now I think about it back at Thanksgiving a guy shows up at my house after dark 30 and says a buddy at the gun range is stranded they jumped it and it wont start wont do anything.

    Its a Toyota Tacoma and he thinks it must be something serious so I drive to the shop and get my jumper battery pack and drive out there and they have a pair of those HD zoner cables and I hook my battery pack up and it fires right off.

    He has an original battery thats 7 years old thats all thats wrong with it so I told him just get a new battery and buy me a 30 stone.

    For my 6V positive ground tractors, "heavy duty" is 2/0 tinned copper cable (aka marine cable).

    especially since most gig's are fused at 20 or 25a.

    best it could be is a good charge recep.... not a jumper..

    i dunno.. 25a is a pretty decent charge rate. a couple hours of that and unless it was a stone dead battery it should kick off.. hope ya got the time to wait!

    That sounds like something you learned on "Burn Notice".
