Schumacher Electric Corporation Launches Upgraded DSR Jump Starters

The internal chargers in the units work with any extension cord, which makes them perfect for use with bay drop cords to recharge.

Schumacher Electric Corporation has announced the relaunch of five DSR Pro Series jump starters that will be sold under the DSR165, DSR166, DSR167, DSR168 and DSR168/G model numbers. The products now feature an internal charger with peak amps ranging from 2200-4400, which makes this class of heavy-duty, high performance jump starters truly portable. The units have been available at professional tool suppliers nationwide since early May.

Originally born from the exacting vision of NHRA racing legend, Don Schumacher, the DSR Pro Series includes a range of battery chargers, maintainers, jump starters and diagnostic tools. Designed to offer professional mechanics durable tools that could stand up to heavy daily use in tough garage environments, the product line-up quickly gained popularity due to advanced features and reliable performance.  

The internal chargers in the units work with any extension cord, which makes them perfect for use with bay drop cords to recharge. At an average cost of $2.00 per minute to walk across the shop, this feature saves time and money. Other call outs besides the hallmark robust design include onboard charging ports to keep auxiliary devices at the ready, thick gauge cables that remain flexible even in cold weather, and high-performance even in extreme conditions due to AGM battery technology. 

“For more than 75 years, professionals have trusted Schumacher Electric to provide high-quality tools they can count on,” said Mickey Leech, CEO of Schumacher. “The reimagined DSR Pro Series jump starters are doing just that, offering professionals a reliable, truly portable jump starter. Our DSR Pro Series offers the features and power that pros require to get the job done, and none of this would be possible without Don Schumacher’s vision for growing Schumacher into the global brand it is today. His vision continues to inspire product innovation for our DSR Pro Series.”

Don Schumacher, who carried the legacy of growing the family business, Schumacher Electric, into a global corporation until it was sold in 2020, passed away on December 20, 2023, at the age of 79. His accomplishments as a motorsports icon and businessman will be memorialized during a special celebration of life ceremony at his home track, Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Ill., on Friday, May 17th.  

The Schumacher family will utilize the event as a way to raise funds for MD Anderson Cancer Center, a cause that was near and dear to Schumacher’s heart. There will be two opportunities for fans to contribute. An on-site raffle will be available on Friday during the race weekend with one lucky winner receiving a framed piece of art featuring all of the cars DSR campaigned during Schumacher’s lifetime. Additional items will be available via online auction starting May 2 at noon ET. “Schumacher Electric is honored to make a donation to the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Don’s memory,” said Leech.
