Prestolite Electric has launched the PowerPro 7.5, an all-new 24V, 7.5kW starter motor as part of the PowerPro family of replacement starters from Leece-Neville Heavy Duty Systems. Designed for use in diesel engines up to 16.0L, the new in-line, gear reduction starter offers industry-leading starting performance at a favorable price.

PowerPro 7.5 high-torque, high-power starters are engineered to meet the needs of demanding heavy-duty, medium-duty, off-highway, agricultural, and bus applications. An ideal replacement for use in AGCO Power, Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit, John Deere, Mercedes-Benz, Perkins, Volvo, and other popular engine models, each starter offers consistent, high-output power in a small, lightweight package.
