Engine

Caterpillar 3406C engine performs at full-rated net power with a torque rise of 55%.


Meets Regulations

The 3406C engine meets worldwide emissions regulations for the Environmental Protection Agency, the European Union and the California Air Resources Board.


Turbocharging and Aftercooling

Turbocharging and aftercooling provide high horsepower while keeping RPM and exhaust temperatures low.


Steel Spacer

A steel spacer between the block and head eliminates the need for block counterbores, extending block life.


Longer Component Life

Components live longer because oil-cooled pistons and full-length water-cooled cylinder liners provide maximum heat transfer for longer component life.


Valves

Stellite-faced valves, through-hardened crankshaft journals and steel-backed, copper-bonded aluminum bearings help assure reliable performance in the toughest duty.


Dealer's Exchange Program

Cat dealer's exchange program for major engine components can cut repair time and costs.


Torque Divider

A single-stage torque converter with output torque divider send 70% of engine torque through the converter, 30% through a direct drive shaft for greater driveline efficiency and higher torque multiplication.


Torque Converter

The torque converter shields the driveline from sudden torque shocks and vibration.


Final Drives

Elevated final drives are isolated from ground and implement induced impact loads for extended power train life.


Transmission

Planetary power shift transmission has 3-speeds forward and 3-speeds reverse and utilizes large diameter, high-capacity, oil-cooled clutches.
