Spring Starter Benefits
- Guaranteed starting. Manual operation ensures engine cranking is unaffected by long shutdowns, damp, cold or harsh environment.
- Reliability. A long and proven track record with many spring starters still operating after decades in service.
- Space and weight saving. Starting at only 18kg and less than 50% the weight of a conventional electric starter.
- Operator safety. The crank will not fly off or kick back during operation, and the motor can be unwound if not required.
- Ease of use. Spring starters are a direct ‘bolt-on’ alternative to electric starters providing quick and easy installation.
- Reduces battery costs. For certain applications, such as pumps, welders and gensets you can remove the need for a battery completely.
- Lower electrical costs. Without the need for an electric starter a lighter duty alternator can be fitted or your existing alternator will last longer.
