- Brand new safety feature
The new /E versions of the Simms Spring Starters are now available for dual port installations.
These include a switch which can be connected to the electric starter circuit to prevent it being operated when the spring starter is already engaged.
In case a spring starter is left partially operated and then a different operator tries to use the electric starter, this safety feature prevents inadvertent damage to the spring starter or Electric starter.
- Spring starter fires up engine first time - even without fuel tank
Kineteco's engineer, Edouard Vernier, was on a trip to Croatia, to demonstrate the newly-built spring starter for the Kubota V3600 engine. The starter was mounted on what was supposed to be a dry engine on its transit pallet. After the normal fitting trials the customer said "Show us how it works on a proper wind. Don't worry, the engine can't start, there is no fuel in it".
Of course, the starter worked so well that the engine started, with the pallet jumping about. A good job our engineer knew where to turn it off.
So a fantastic demonstration of how efficiently a spring starter can fire up an engine with just the smallest drop of fuel left.
