Reliable, compact, low cost hand starting for smaller engines
- Small, lightweight starter to fit small engines
- Smooth action power spring for easy winding
- Uses standard SS/SR nosepieces with manual engagement and trip mechanism
- Fits anywhere that a SS/SR starter will go
- Standard SS/SR crank wind with detachable handle
SMS/SMR power spring starters are ideal for smaller engines working in tough conditions. Designed for engines from 0.6L to 4L displacement, they are perfect for easy and safe hand starting.
Based on the long established SS/SR range of starters, the SMS/SMR series have the advantage of using proven SS/SR components including nosepiece, winding, trip and pinion assemblies. With a manual engage and trip mechanism and detachable crank wind, the operator can choose exactly how the starter performs.
Using a power spring (rather than a disc spring) makes the body of the SMS/SMR range shorter and lighter. This allows it to be fitted to a wide range of previously incompatible engines.
As with all Kineteco spring starters, the SMS/SMR series bolts directly into the standard starter pocket on the engine. Given the correct engine configuration, all the electrics can be dispensed with. Fitting takes a matter of minutes, and operation of the spring starter does not require any special skill or strength. Unlike a directly hand-cranked engine, time can be taken to wind the starter, which can then be tripped when ready.
Marine, flame-proof and E-pack dual start options are available ensuring Kineteco SMS/SMR spring starters can be configured to meet customers’ exact requirements.
New engine applications are constantly being developed. For engines not listed, please contact us.
