Default Drill type for direct drive starter help

Hey guys,

just got my direct drive back plate in the mail it's all fitted and lined up properly but my cordless drill wont turn it at all it just stops and shudders as if the drill doesn't have enough power.Any recommendations on drill power ranges or even certain drills i should look out for?

Cheers!

I was using an 18v rigid fuego 2 speed with my Roto start before I got the actual Roto start. Even on a fully charged battery it was just barely fast enough to start the engine. The hand held shaft starters turn about 4 times faster than a drill and also have some kind of protection system if the engine floods/locks up. I bet you'll end up getting a shaft starter sooner than you think.
