The Start Pac HI-BRD-4 is a free-running GPU for operators who need a powerful solution, away from the hangar, to jump-start their fleet of aircraft and perform maintenance on various cockpit systems such as inverters, avionics, GPS and other high draw aircraft systems, including on-board air conditioning.

Its unique self-propelled feature makes this ground power unit simple and easy to maneuver on the ramp for shorter distances and yet can be towable for longer distances.
