Setting the standard for starting Continental engines, each Energizer-style aircraft starter has a heavy-duty wound field motor to provide high torque, making them favorable on big bore engines. The Energizer also features direct drive with extremely low back torque to protect the starter adapter. Its heavy case and robust motor allow for excellent cooling, resulting in a good duty cycle performance and long life. Sold through Continental Motors, Energizer-style aircraft starters are available from Hartzell’s distributors under its equivalent ES part number.

Developed by Hartzell, E-Drive aircraft starters offer industry-leading, robust, high duty cycle starters in a lightweight package. By utilizing a powerful neodymium permanent motor driven though a self-resetting negative torque-sensing device, the E-Drives provides unparalleled kickback protection, preventing hours of down time and replacement costs. The E-Drive aircraft starter is solenoid engaged, eliminating the need for a Bendix drive. Its low current draw helps maintain good battery life.
