A new generation of Spring Starters is here. They open up a whole new world of easy, lightweight and safe hand starting. Now you can fire up a diesel engine by hand more easily than starting a lawnmower -and gain big benefits in doing so.
Spring Starters combine the dependability of hand winding with a powerful spring mechanism.
Operation is simple, and with a Spring Starter fitted to your engine it only takes a few moments to kick your diesel engine into life. Hand starting is no longer an all or nothing effort, because the winding is separated from the starting. You just wind steadily until enough energy is stored in the spring, the starter is tripped to release the stored energy, and off you go.
No sharp pull. No yanking. No sweat. Such smooth, steady starting, that even powering up a big generator is easy.
Sure And Reliable
There are many reasons to fit Spring Starters. On irrigation pumps and boats the combination of water and electrics is a sure recipe for disaster. On construction sites batteries frequently 'disappear' from equipment or fail because of chronic vibration. In a mine or grain mill, dust can get into switches or be ignited by sparks.
On a lifeboat or oil rig you need a dependable back-up starter that is safe to use and needs only limited manpower when all else fails. Unaffected by long shutdowns, damp or cold, Spring Starters are ideal for equipment left in storage for long periods of time; from emergency and utility stand-by to grass-cutting and maintenance equipment.
In the remotest of locations sure starting is equally about ease of operation and sustainability in the most adverse conditions.
Equipment for disaster relief, military and strategic use needs to be lightweight and ready for use at a moment's notice - features which often only a Spring Starter can provide. Our newest starters are very simple and affordable, making hand starting the smart option on a wider range of machinery. Fitting is easy. Just remove the electric starter and its connectors and bolt on the Spring Starter.
Perfect as an emergency back up in a boat's locker, in case of trouble with the battery, starter, alternator or wiring. And excellent as the primary starter for a whole host of uses where you never want to be faced with a dead engine again.
