How spring starting works
Click on the movie for a demonstration of a spring starter in action on a 12 litre MAN 2866 emergency generator unit.
Spring starters are direct bolt-on replacements for electric starters, bringing easy and reliable hand starting to diesel engine owners the world over.
Spring starters combine the dependability of hand winding with a powerful spring mechanism. Operation is simple:- the spring starter bolts directly on to the starter pocket on the engine. Fitting takes minutes and your diesel engine will spring into life
Spring starters ensure reliable starting time and time again and they are resistant to damp and extremes of temperature. They are completely safe and can replace entire electrical systems, saving weight and money.
Capable of starting engines up to 15 litres, Kineteco spring starters are compatible with a huge variety of different engines used in many diverse applications, from emergency generators, lifeboats, irrigation pumps to oil rigs and hazardous environments where electric starting is prohibited because of the potential for sparks to cause an explosion.
Kineteco spring starters have a proven track record - the classic Simms range has been starting diesel engines in the most testing of conditions or nearly 40 years now. Our latest spring starters provide a simple and mostly lighter and lower cost alternative.
