    Thought I would put this in the Excavator section, but this would apply to any 24 volt machine with a 24 volt lighter or accessory socket. Ran across this unit by accident, seems like the perfect thing for an owner to put in his machines or an operator to carry in his lunch bucket:

    This is a surplus outfit, but it's a name brand convertor, I've paid more than their price for a cell phone charger cord.

    Cheers,

    Damn, good find! Normally I just throw a wire from one battery for cb and such

    On edit, what the hell do they even put 24v plugs in them for ?

    The biggest I can get. No more than 8 ' wide. Got a pond clean out with limited access. Thanks for the lead ! I've got to get serious on this bid.
