Anyone have any experience with this fairly new starter box?

The one in your link says 1 770 motor, not 2 550's big difference, as 1 770 may struggle to turn cold or tight engines, and 2 550's will be enough to use as a bench grinder

Jaz, I believe it originally came with a 770 motor but has recently been upgraded to 2 550's. They have not yet updated their website, however it was updated on A-Main's site. Let me know how you like it Nolan, as I'm considering purchasing one. Thanks!

I would be interested to see more feedback from customers.For $44 I think it is worth a look, at least for a backup

Sorry it took so long to get back the weather in Michigan finally let me take out the buggy this start box works great used it to break in a motor and run some laps at the local tracks for the price it is worth it.
