Mitsubishi Electric Automotive America's heavy duty truck starters are now standard equipment on all Class 8 International branded trucks produced by Navistar Inc.

Mitsubishi Electric heavy duty starters feature innovations and technologies that make them well suited to the durability and output requirements found in today's engines, according to the company. Mitsubishi Electric uses a planetary gear reduction and sealed design, an integrated magnetic relay, a solid-shaft solenoid, and electrical soft-start technology to provide reliability and durability. These starters weigh only 29 pounds, which allow for easier installation, improved fuel economy and increased payload potential.

Mitsubishi Electric Automotive America offers starters and alternators with a three-year/350,000 mile OE and aftermarket warranty. The products have a failure rate of less than one percent.
