DK 4510 - battery location a PIA?

The battery compartment has a plastic cover held with 4 screws, not hard to get to but still a pain if you are just wanting to jump. I was looking at adding an Anderson quick connect plug on my DK4510MS like we used at work on all of our trucks. It looks like I could just connect the hot lead to the starter solenoid lug along with the battery cable instead of trying to connect to the battery.

Below are some random images of the connector, you can buy the parts or buy cables already made up. You will also want a short pigtail with clamps for regular use.

Thanks - that's exactly what I will do - already have one on my F350.

Thanks for the manual - I downloaded the whole thing - think I am going to mod it with and Anderson plug system.

Update - just got off the phone with my dealer who just got off the phone with Kioti corporate and according to them ( Kioti) the new 4510s will have the battery up front under the hood - I ordered it - we shall see!!

Much less expensive for my fuel pump setup for my front mtd battery: I simply use the Battery Tender pigtail wires off my battery to match the SAE connector on my HF fueling pump. Polarity must match plus the wire gauge to the pump needs to be adequate too. Amazon seller has the pigtail with SAE in several lengths already made up and cheaper than buying components separately. SAE plugs are not waterproof but never cause an issue either. Mine dangles very slightly below the front battery location for access.
