Geof-
Hey, uh, can you clarify a bit on that starter-generator thing you so intently desire? Like, what is it?

.....usually it is a generator/alternator with a gasoline engine turning it.....w/2 X 20'long jumper cables mounted on a flat plate with a cover over it.....usually just pull the rope and hook it the cars battery and it will give it a "HOT SHOT" and turn over the engine in a short period of time.....I'd like one with about 300 amps for a kicker if I run down/wipe out a battery....kinda like a 2nd option...should I have a system failure.....gasoline stations used to use them to jump dead/cold batterys instead of using the electrical system in their wreckers as it eats the electric system usually in a winter....these prevent those issues....we used them for boats for years but I have no access to them now....I sold the business and all the gizmos with it....geof kaye

Appreciate the reply Geof, thanks!
No hits yet, huh?
Wouldn't be too hard to roll your own would it? Just a thought......

.....eventually....I'll probably end up making my own[damnitall]....right now is a good time for capital improvements in my business accounts so I'm loading up on the small things that make "doing business" easier and lower profits for the 1st quarter[hopefully]....one of those things was a starter/generator but they seem to have faded from the service industry as even the Freightliner truck dealership has a starting unite that recharges while pluggged in the lobby to a 220vac plug and has an on board charger and 4 huge batteries to start class 8 that have been sitting for months in cold weather.....Though any leeds are appreciated...though I don't Ebay-I do business with commercial venders......geof kaye

Found this for you. Maybe check it out. You could build one very easily. 12 or 24 volt.
