Kickstart brand hard start kits are the kits we use on all of our trucks for aftermarket service applications. When you are on a job with a locked compressor you need a hard start kit that will do the job time and time again without failure and without damaging the compressor. The TO5 kit is designed for 1.5 – 3 ton A/C applications and the KS1 is designed for 3.5 – 5 ton. While you may only connect “two wires” to the run capacitor, this kit uses the tried and true start capacitor and potential relay to get the compressor started and then get the start capacitor out of the circuit quickly.
