turbine start pack
Need to replace my CoolSpool 17 starter with a new one ( dont make them anymore ). Needs to only start the ac a couple of times ( MD 500 /As 350 ) but needs to be man portable ie walk across a wet field maybe 300 m from a vehICLE
What are you guys using ?
Cheers in advance

Hughes, we use the Coolspool 29, youíll need this sort of poke for your 350. We get about 5 starts out of it.

Itís good for us as the charger is integral to the unit.

Amazing what they cost though as itís only a box with two batteries in it!!

Weíve also got a RedBox, which is ok too, but the charger is external and just gets in the way👍

Big fan of Start Pac products. Used them in the GOM and bought a couple for my side work. Dont know your definition of man portable but I moved these up and down platforms and to other remote areas. Some come with wheel kits. Good customer service to boot.

Second the Start Pac. But use it for starting only and not to run avionics etc during maintenance. Brilliant.
