Premium heavy-duty starters cover nearly all Class 8 trucks.

LONG BEACH, Calif. – DENSO Products and Services Americas, Inc., an affiliate of leading global mobility supplier DENSO Corp., has expanded its PowerEdge brand of starters for the heavy-duty trucking industry. In response to customer demand, DENSO has added two new 39PE part numbers to the aftermarket line that covers more than 90% of all Class 8 trucks on the road today.

The new part numbers extend coverage to commercial trucks with Cummins ISX12 G, Volvo DD13, and Mack MP8 engines. PowerEdge’s full line of powerful, competitively priced 39PE and 42PE series starters covers models built by Freightliner, International/Navistar, Kenworth, Mack, Peterbilt, Sterling, Western Star, Volvo, and Autocar.

“PowerEdge starters give companies the muscle they need to keep their trucks in motion,” said Otto Jun, product manager of DENSO Heavy Duty Product Management. “We’re delivering for our customers so they can deliver for their customers.”

DENSO uses the latest technology and superior materials to deliver premium starters that meet and exceed the power demands of today’s heavy-duty trucks. Advantages of the 39PE and 42PE include:

  • Rugged design, powerful performance, and unmatched durability.
  • Precision testing to ensure every unit meets factory-original standards.
  • Over Crank Protection (OCP) continuously monitors internal temperatures to prevent thermal damage to the starter.
  • Integral Magnetic Switch (IMS) reduces voltage drop and ensures the solenoid receives maximum voltage under all starting conditions (39PE).
  • All units are 100% new with no core charge.
  • All PE starters are backed by a one-year/unlimited miles warranty.

DENSO’s PowerEdge program offers starters, alternators, and diesel aftertreatment products for Class 8 truck aftermarket. Built to meet and exceed the increased electrical demands and emissions control requirements of today’s heavy-duty trucking industry, PowerEdge has established itself as the go-to program for fleets of all sizes.
