ZTR KickStart

Locomotive batteries can be expensive to replace and the cost of a failed start can be considerable. ZTR’s KickStart™ has revolutionized locomotive starting power with supercapacitor technology. KickStart™ bolsters locomotive batteries during the engine start, reducing battery strain. That means less energy drain from batteries, longer battery life, less time to recharge batteries, faster cranking speed and outstanding locomotive reliability.
