SureStart S60

The SureStart S60 Spring Starter is suitable for diesel engines up to 732.3 cubic inches (12 litres). It is available as a clockwise rotation model only.


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.
