Can I jump start my tractor with my car?
You can jump start a tractor much in the same way as you jump start a car. Many tractors, farm or lawn, use a 6-volt battery system and not a 12-volt; you cannot jump start these types with a regular car. Once you have a power source that will not overwhelm your tractor system, you can jump start a tractor easily.
