Prestolite Electric’s medium-duty replacement starter

Prestolite Electric’s PowerPro Extreme 5 is a 12-volt 4.5kW replacement starter engineered to offer high-torque high-efficiency power for 6- to 10-liter engines used in medium-duty applications such as construction, fire and rescue, pickup and delivery, refuse and school bus. Featuring a planetary gear reduction design, the 21.5-pound starter is available in both 10- and 12-tooth versions and is available for a variety of engine models, including Cummins ISB, ISC and ISL; International DT466E and DT570E; and MaxxForce DT, 9 and 10. A sealed noseless design helps protect against dust, oil and other contaminants, while the company’s proprietary Integral Magnetic Switch technology eliminates voltage drop and its soft-start relay technology prevents ring gear damage.
