Johnson Electric Launches Engine Starter for Lawn Mowers - Long Life and Jam Free Starter for Heavy Duty Commercial Operation

Hong Kong, 4 August, 2011 -- Johnson Electric today announced a high performance engine starter for heavy duty ride on lawn mowers. This new addition to the PowerPod TM product line is designed to achieve jam free starting and more cranks per battery charge. The PowerPod-HD starter eliminates jamming by deploying a unique Posi-Pinion™ technology and delivers high power in a compact package.


The performance of the PowerPod-HD sets a new industry standard for starting reliability, power density and efficiency. In addition to the floating pinion design, the performance improvement is achieved by an innovative magnetic circuit and dense pack winding technology. This new starter offers significant improvements over traditional solenoid shift starters. The PowerPod-HD is 20 percent smaller and delivers 40 percent more cranks from one battery charge.


“The PowerPod-HD is designed to satisfy the requirements of the commercial mowing machine industry,” said Jim Dick, Johnson Electric’s senior vice president of Strategic Marketing.  “This product innovation also allows commercial mowing machines to be designed with smaller batteries” he added.
