jump start tractor- stupid question?


ok this might be a dumb question- My tractor has the battery under the seat- How do I jump start it?? The manual looks like it's more generic and assumes the battery is up front..... is it even possible?

No one here knows what you mean by "tractor" pretty generic term.
Riding mower by chance?
If so your dealing with a seat and clutch safety switches in most cases.
Without having to bypass these switch I use my charger that has a 50 amp. motor position and route the cables so there not getting crushed.

Ayuh,.... Instead of hookin' the jumpers to the Battery, hook 'em up the the Other end of the battery's wires,...
Usually the positive at the starter's main lug, 'n to motor ground,..
