Kocsis Hydraulic "Black Start Packages"

A hydraulic engine starter uses hydraulic fluid under pressure to start engines. The hydraulic fluid is stored in an

accumulator and the fluid is pressured either by a powered recharge pump or, in the case of a "black start", a manual hand

or foot pump. In a similar manner to the air starter, this fluid is charged and then released using a valve, this time into a

hydraulic starter motor, which converts the stored energy into rotation to start the engine. As they can be manually charged,

hydraulic starters are ideal for "black start" situations, and can also be made sparkless, allowing for use in explosive

environments. They are also able to operate over a wide range of environments and temperatures.

Complete starter systems which are supplied assembled and can be readily installed on a host of applications.


  • A hydraulic starter package will turn the engine faster than an air or electric starter
  • Capable of starting without external power, " Black Start " capability
  • Starting is always possible anywhere, anytime
  • Each system incorporates a hand pump / foot pump for unlimited manual recharging
  • At -40°C / -40°F the hydraulic starter has the same torque as at normal temperature
  • Engine driven recharge pumps recharges the system for the next start
  • Soft Start drive engagement for reduced mechanical stress
  • Fully packaged for system integrity and ease of installation
  • Internally lubricated, for longevity resulting in a long life and superior reliability in harsh environments.
  • Complete with oil reservoir, filler breather and sight glass
  • 23MPa (3300 psi) Relief valve integrated into tank
  • Supplied with 1.8m (6ft.) hoses. Other lengths available on request
  • Available with unlimited accumulators to determine start times


  • Components will be mounted on a steel tube frame housing the Accumulator
  • If requested package can be designed to accept an additional accumulator 
  • Reservoir
  • High and Low Pressure Filters
  • Block Valve
  • Hand Pump
  • System Pressure Gauge
  •  Cable Pull Start
  • Package will come complete with high pressure and low pressure hoses
