Spring starters are a direct ‘bolt-on’ solution. They can be installed quickly and easily, even while you’re out on the water.
The S60 Spring Starter is used in applications including Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit, Man, Perkins, Scania and Volvo.
The SureStart S60 Spring Starter was developed following the success of the S50 Spring Starter range. Some of the components were redesigned and the patented multi-rate spring pack transformed the S50 into a new S60 Spring Starter. Smaller engines can be started using the S20, S30 or S40 Spring Starters. Larger engines can be started with S70 spring starters.
The SureStart S60 Spring Starter is used in many applications including Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit, Man, Perkins, Scania and Volvo.
