Prestolite Electric has announced a new starter for engines in fire, rescue and other trucks. It’s called the PowerPro Extreme 5, a 12-volt, 4.5-kilowatt starter from Leece-Neville Heavy Duty Systems.

The latest addition to the PowerPro Extreme range offers high-torque, high-efficiency starting power for six- to 10-litre engines used in construction, fire and rescue, pickup and delivery, refuse and school bus applications.

Featuring a planetary gear reduction design, the PowerPro Extreme 5 is available in both 10- and 12-tooth versions and provides a premium replacement alternative for a variety of popular engines, including Cummins ISB, ISC and ISL; International DT466E and DT570E; and MaxxForce DT, 9 and 10 models.

“Our new PowerPro Extreme 5 starter is designed to provide medium-duty vehicle operators with reliable, high-output power in a lightweight, value-driven package,” said Jonathan Smith, assistant director of aftermarket sales and marketing, Prestolite Electric. “Extensive testing with many of the industry’s premiere truck and engine manufacturers has shown the PowerPro Extreme 5 to crank faster than competitive models while also requiring lower electrical current.”
