Drawbar Pull

Note The direct injection electronic fuel system provides a controlled fuel delivery increase as the engine lugs back from rated speed. This results in increased horsepower below rated power. A combination of increased torque rise and maximum horsepower improves response, provides greater drawbar pull and faster dozing cycles.
