HAPPY ENGINE STARTER

The Happy Engine Starter is meant to start those larger pumps that the portable starter isn't able to handle. This starter is designed to be mounted to the floor for a permanent means of getting that flywheel turning. We will build a 8-20hp starter per your specifications. The Happy starter is a gasoline-powered engine that uses your auto battery for a power source.  Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery on these starters. Approximate weight is 350-lbs. and they must ship FOB.

OUTSTANDING ADVANTAGES TO USIING A HAPPY ENGINE STARTER:

  • Economically, the Happy Engine Starter offers much more for less than any comparable starter.
  • Happy Engine Starters are manufactured with one express purpose in mind and that is to provide an engine starter that will be dependable, safe, rugged, sure, affordable, and quick. The starters are designed to meet and overcome the most unfavorable conditions, whether it be the weather, stubborn engines, or both.
  • Happy Engine Starters have been designed from practical engineering experience.
  • Happy Engine Starters have been designed with safety in mind.

HOW CAN A HAPPY ENGINE STARTER INCREASE YOUR PRODUCTIVITY?

  • Rolls engine flywheel continuously until engine starts.
  • Unnecessary to "spot" engine before starting.
  • Foot lever operated --- safest method.
  • Quickly installed, only 4 anchor bolts required.
  • Compact, sturdy, long life, dependable performance.
  • No piping, tanks, regulators, valves, diaphragms, air, or gas required.
  • Costs less than air starting equipment.
  • Friction wheel slippage can be minimized by roughing the surface with coarse sandpaper.
  • No maintenance of batteries or voltage regulators; no generators to watch; no problems of adaptors or other    auxiliary equipment.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Set four 5/8" x 6" foundation bolts in concrete floor with 3/4" projection above floor.  Set friction wheel with 1/8" clearance from flywheel.  Line up parallel with flywheel of engine to be started.  Starter should be level, firm, and solid.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
After starter engine is running, engage friction wheel against flywheel of engine, roll forward against compression and release; then engage again at which time the starter will roll flywheel in normal rotation until engine fires and starts.  Easier starting will result if compression release valve is open - particularly in cold weather conditions.
