    Default Baton Rouge - M923 Batteries

    Is anyone near Baton Rouge that would be willing to get an M923A2 started? It will likely need the usual batteries and fuel prime to get it running. I plan to have it hauled but it needs to drive up onto the trailer. Thanks.

    I might be able to help.

    What is the timeline? Is at GSA?

    I am familiar with the nhc250 but have never primed an a2 but I am sure you can talk me through it?

    Hey Brent, I might be able to get it going. What's your timeline and where is it? Do you need the batteries to stay in it?

    It's GSA at the Louisiana Federal Property building. I'd prefer to leave good batteries in it so unloading will be easy. I can guide anyone through the process on an A2. Timeline is sooner the better, 2 week window max (standard GSA limitations). As soon as it's confirmed running I can get it picked up. you won't have to baby sit it.

    I will talk to Doug and we can help you together. I work in Baton Rouge. I also have access to reasonable batts. They normally don't have junk there so it should just be simple to make her run.

    Brent, let the location know that Juan and I will stop by in the next couple of days. Juan is able to pick up 2 refurbished 31 batts if we need them.
