Default Roto start question

how fast does a roto start spin? i bought just the backing plate for my motor and thought i would save some money and use my cordless drill instead but i dont think it is spins the motor fast enough. my drill says it spins 1800rpms.

I am not sure exactly how fast a roto-start turns. I had the same idea when I first started because I had a cordless drill and didnt see the point in spending the extra cash for the roto-start, the cordless drill , no matter which one you buy, only turns about half what a roto-start does but it will still work. It just takes a little longer to get your engine started, especially in the winter. the extra RPM make engine starting much easier so when you get the extra cash get the roto-start.

hope this was helpful
