    Hopefully your tv had a big fat cord! Or you like fire and sparks.

    i was wondering the same? no idea what amperage the quad electric start would take. and would it do damage to the boosting vehicle? no idea just asking.

    I got a set of miniature booster cables from Partstop in Spruce Grove.

    ^+1, I also carry a small boat anchor if I'm out alone in case there are no trees within 150 feet of where I'm stuck, saved my ass more than once. And don't forget your chain saw, especially in the spring.

    Something else to consider. Some atvs can be pull started, like my grizzly 700. Turn the key on, high range, and it will start at around 15km/h.
