Looking into getting one, however nearly fell of me chair when first search found me ones at nearly a grand!!! Since found a few around the 300 mark which I could justify. Will not be needing it to start anything big, a few cars that don't move very often but when they do usually need a jump (battery stays connected for alarm etc) and a few vintage tractors that can take a bit of persuading when parked up a while! Hashing about with jump leads and wangling a second vehicle into position is all getting a bit old!!, plus might have to start two vehicles to get the one I need out!, so something I could pick up and take with me would be nice.

The 300quid version will do my job wont it?, its a SIP brand, 22Ah battery with 12v internal battery voltage and charge indicators, 840 amp cranking rate & 2500 amp boost peak rate??

It started the Manitou but I dont think thats anyware near that big ,,cant think of anything thats got a 6 ltr diesel to be honest unless it was american

Manitou is probably 4.4litre but then you got hydraulics and transmission to turn so not quite the same as just a engine on its own which will be how they rate these types of boosters in order to make them look good.

yeah i did that, i dont think the clamp was on earth good enough when i tried and i not had a dead machine since to try it on.
If you don't get a good connection it won't switch itself on. In the same way you can switch it on and touch the 2 clamps together and they are both dead.
It needs to read some sort of voltage to establish the polarity is correct before the clamps become live
