A Series (CMO)

The A series is not to be underestimated. Although small and extremely light (11 lbs), this starter provides quite a punch with 15 ft-lbs of torque and the ability to turn at 7000 RPM. This translates into extremely fast engine starting of engines up to 9 liters (549 cu. in.). These smaller engines are quite common on lifeboats, which is a prime example when fast starting is paramount.


B Series (CMA)

The B series starter is by far the model that is offered in the most variations. This starter is commonly relied upon for dependable starting with the combination of torque and modularity. Providing 45 ft-lbs of torque in a 17 lb package, the B series starter is a workhorse. Depending on conditions, the B series starter cranks up to 18 liter (1098 cu. in.) engines which are quite common in the marine industry.


C Series (CMD-2A)

The C series starter fits a vast array of engines with a bit of overlap on both the low and high ends. This model features 72 ft-lbs of torque in only a 35 lb product commonly used in applications which include blenders, gensets and pumping engines.


D Series (CMD-3A)

This model convincingly produces 120 ft-lbs of torque in only a 40 lb package. D series starters are common in numerous applications, including fire pumps, gensets and frac pumps. This model of starter dependably starts engines up to 41 liter displacement (2500 cu. in.).


E Series (CME-5A)

The starter of choice by engine OEM’s, the E series repeatedly produces 200 ft-lb of torque. While weighing significantly less than other gear motor driven starters at 46 lbs, the E Series provides more power per pound than others. The E Series starter can be found in applications including, but not limited to frac pumps, emergency gensets and fire pumps on offshore platforms. The E series can start an engine up to 100 liters (6100 cu. in.).
