Jump start my Troy-Bilt 1925 portable generator? Battery is

Customer Question

jump start my Troy-Bilt 1925 portable generator?
JA: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?
Customer: Battery is currently dead and weather conditions preclude getting an immediate replacement. Can I use jumper cables from my car?
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes, I must do it myself. I am in the midst of Hurricane.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I just need to know if I can jump start the generator using my car battery.
