Tilton 40000-Series Super Starters feature the torque and speed needed to start large displacement, high-compression engines, made possible by a powerful 3.0 HP (2.2kW) motor and 3.75:1 gear reduction drive assembly. Tiltonís Heavy Duty solenoid (P/N 54-422HD) comes standard beginning August 2015, allowing 40000-Series Super Starters to reliably handle 16 volts and provide the extra speed needed to spin engines fast enough for locked-out magnetos.

Tilton's 40000-Series Super Starters are available as an upgrade to many original equipment (OE) starters, and for many specialty/custom applications. Additionally, the 40000-Series is available with standard or reverse rotation on certain models.
