Heavy Duty High Quality Jump Leads

Postby Chris Skinner » 17 Aug 2015 18:06

Hi Guys - I am making extra heavy duty handmade jump leads if anyone wants.
I managed to get a roll of 35mmsq welding cable at a massive discount and decided its perfect for jump leads. The ones you buy look like thick cable - but they all very thin copper with very thick plastic, and only look robust but cant take the punch on anything bigger than a tyota 1600 :biggrin:

I looked at some commercially available top range jump leads rated at 600amp - they only had 16mmsq copper in the cables!! ... so with 35mmsq you will start a bulldozer!
Due to the heavy gauge it is also feasible to go up to 5m on cable length which will enable jumping without having to aligning the vehicles.

The cables will be properly crimped and bolted onto the clamps (with help of Tinus crimping machine :confused: ), and will last for life!
Price will be determined by what clamps you want as there are varying quality with massisve price differences.
Length is your choice - std size is 3m (includes handles).

I can also make them up with a very heay duty Brad Harrisson connector on one end - Ive seen some guys have such a set-up on thir vehicles and it make life very much easier...

Here the prices (top range clamps where they cost R50 each x4) (excludes a bag which I am trying to source)
3m - R430
4m - R490
5m - R550

If anyone interested please let me know.

Great idea Chris!

I also made my own cables, its the only ones that really work.
I also made mine from welding cable but made then 4m long. I can now start a car even when you remove the car that needs to be jumpt's battery
