OEM Supply & New Installations
Kineteco Spring Starters provide an ideal solution where a secondary starting method is required for a safety critical diesel engine or as a reliable primary starting method for an engine operating in a harsh or hazardous environment.

Applications include lifeboat engines, ships’ emergency generators, hydraulic power units (HPUs) & fire pump engines. The model range covers diesel engine capacities up to 15 litres.

With 100+ models available, it is likely we have a starter to suit your engine. If not, new models can often be quickly configured from the wide range of mounting flanges/starter noses and pinions.
The new Z drive starters provide extra installation flexibility with their variable offset bodies.
