Burro de Arranque

A previous entry at DSWU I talked about a marcha as being the word they use in Mexico as the starter motor for a car. In Argentina the same English word is represented by burro de arranque. However, I have also heard people just call it burro.

Seems that the lowly donkey has many uses in the Spanish language. It comes up in many idiomatic expressions as well as being used to describe other nouns.
