Spring starters

Hatraco delivers the Kineteco spring starters.

Spring starters are a direct replacement for the existing electric (or other) starter system, making them easy and simple to fit. A spring starter requires no external power systems unlike their electric, air (pneumatic) or hydraulic counterpart systems. A spring starter is simple, compact, dependable and in many cases the preferred choice for back-up starting.
 

Non powered starter excellence

Kineteco spring starters are suitable for a large range of diesel engines and can start small 400cc single cylinders all the way up to 15L 6 cylinders. The spring starters are used all over the world in many applications including ship’s lifeboats, irrigation pumps, black start generators, mining vehicles and fire pumps, etc.
