Thought you all might get a kick out of this....

So I go to leave for work this morning (5 minutes late in typical Monday fashion), and my truck won't even turn over. Battery is toast. Now, I own a charger, but nothing with a booster. Only an overgrown trickle charger. I know I'm going to be late.
My wife and I both look at the 120 sitting next to the truck that I haven't bothered to move back into the shed since I installed the new belt guard (beautiful, btw). "Why not?" we both said.
Fired up the 120 (which hadn't been started since Xmas, and fired up on the first turn), let it warm up for a couple minutes. Hooked up the jumper cables, wound up the throttle, and the truck fired right up. So much for Starter/Generators being underpowered. Turned over a 4.3L V6 with no problem. Pull into work 5 seconds ahead of my boss :lol:
Is there anything these tractors can't do?

I had this same experience on two separate occasions. Went into the garage to start my 97 Jimmy, and the battery was dead in the water. Hooked my 222 up to it and in no time, it spun it over without much effort at all.

My blood runs with hydraulic oil. I love my little 120, but I'd never be caught dead going to work driving a belt drive. I'd break out the 130 :sidelaugh:

My first thing I thought was you drove the 120 to work then I switched to you pulled your pickup with the 120 to get it started so you fooled me.

That green piece of junk I have with the quackisaki motor in it would have to be 50 or 60 degrees outside for it to fire up.
