    Hi Guys,
    I have several 15 amp max battery chargers that I keep on a site with a generator in case a battery needs it. I am wanting to get one of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/Schumacher-...id=100009&rk=1&rkt=1&mehot=ag&sd=301510801171
    to help with quick starts if I am late getting to site to prepare loaders for snow. It has a 65 amp quick charge and 225 amp quick start feature. Does it harm batteries to charge them at 65 amps? Anything else I might consider looking into. This was the best I found so far,
    Steve

    Yes it is harder on them. But sometimes you have to do what you have to do to get it done.

    Put a battery disconnect on the loaders so they are not dead.
