Delco Remy 31MT™: The Trusted Choice for School Bus Fleets

School buses present a unique set of challenges. A school bus performs the majority of its workday at slow speeds. At the same time, lighting and safety equipment on a bus increase the electrical loads that must be met at these same slow speeds. Add to that cold temperatures during certain times of the year and it’s easy to see why school buses need a starter you can count on—every time. The Delco Remy 31MTTM is at the top of the class for school bus starter options!
 
“The 31MT is ideal for applications that have lots of starts and stops or work in a variety of stressful driving conditions. This describes school buses perfectly,” says Brian Koehlinger, Senior Sales Manager. “The 31MT gives buses strength, power and durability—and districts the affordability they need.”
 
The 31MT—which provides 10% more peak power than competing models—is a robust, corrosion-resistant starter that produces the torque and speed necessary to crank 12V diesel engines up to 9 liters. Its lightweight aluminum housing reduces overall vehicle weight, and its sealed solid link solenoid construction protects against solenoid contact welding and exposure to contaminants. Additionally, the 31MT is equipped with the electrical soft-start engagement system for a predictable start every time. All of this ensures reliability and long service life—critical for school district budgets that are often being stretched.
