Local Craig's list ad for a trector that's been sitting for 2 years. Ad states that to get tractor running, you need to bring along an air compressor to air up the tire and battery :eek: . And all these years I've been using jumper cables on batteries. Never thought about airing it up first :D .

In all seriousness, theres a company that comes in to my warehouse that has air powered starters on their trucks! I asked the driver one day what happenes if he lost all the air in the tanks, they carry one of those cigarette lighter pumps, and of all things a bicycle pump, just in case.

Those air starter were on some trucks in the 60. Worked at a truck stop and drivers would shut off the trucks on Friday nite and could get them to turn over Sunday nite. We had a gas engine powered air compressor on the company truck and we would just go down the line airing up the ones with air starters.
