Go to a welding supply and get welding leads. Make them as long as you want.

Iím guessing youíre jumping big equipment, but if not, Iíve had great luck with those small jump starting kits. I have two of the Rockford brand and the whole package including the jumper Cables connections is literally smaller than two 8 track tapes.

I switched to one of these. It starts every truck and tractor I have ever used it on. Much easier to manage than heavy duty cables.

I bought the heaviest gauge cables, but now I use a NOCO booster. They usually go on sale during the holidays at Amazon

Id buy the jumper battery and self jump. No need for long cables or a 2nd vehicle.

Amazon is the best place BY FAR to get booster cables.

Buy a couple of pairs and cut off one end and use some split bolts to make longer ones

I have one of these but sometimes I just need cables, ie when this thing is dead or when having to do some jerry rigging to jump something off. I have a good set of cables I have had for 20 years and now the boys need a set for their trucks and was hoping someone would have a lead on a good set without having to go to the welding supply store. Looks like Amazon ones may do the trick


Thanks for all the suggestions

Home Depot sells a Husky Brand 20’ set that are cheap and have seemed to work alright. Not solid copper but for the price I can’t complain.
