Discharged battery might lead to the need to use jump cables to start the engine of the loader with the use of an external battery pack or other unit.
This process can be dangerous is case of polarity mistake on the jump cables connection as the battery short circuit can lead to explosion of the battery, fire start and serious damages on the electric system of the machine.
In order to mitigate this risk, Sandvik offers the installation of the Jump Start Connector Upgrade Solution.
The Jump Start Connector avoid the risk to invert polarity of the jump cable. It avoid also generation of sparks, that could happen if cables where connected temporarily on the battery terminals with clamps (risk of fire).
Only female connector is supplied on the kit. Cable with male connector can be ordered separately from Sandvik:
