NOVI, Mich. — Prestolite Electric has introduced the PowerPro Extreme 5, a new 12V 4.5kW replacement starter from Leece-Neville Heavy Duty Systems.

The latest addition to the PowerPro Extreme range is designed to provide high-torque, high-efficiency starting power for 6- to 10-liter engines used in school buses as well as construction, fire and rescue, pickup and delivery, and refuse applications.

The PowerPro Extreme 5 features a planetary gear reduction design and is available in 10- and 12-tooth versions. The new starter provides a replacement alternative for a variety of 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 for Prestolite Electric. “Extensive testing with many of the industry’s premier truck and engine manufacturers has shown the PowerPro Extreme 5 to crank faster than competitive models while also requiring lower electrical current.”

The PowerPro Extreme 5 weighs 21.5 pounds and has a sealed, nose-less design to protect against dust, oil, and other contaminants.
