Disengage the clutch of a motor. See also double-declutch.
- There is no clutch, so you don't even have to remember to declutch when stopping.
- If a jam occurs - even during start-up - the engine throttles down and declutches before damage is sustained.
- As soon as the flywheel starts spinning with requisite speed, the bendix drive declutches from the flywheel.
