Engine Design

  • Proven reliability and durability
  • Ability to burn a wide spectrum of gaseous fuels
  • Robust diesel strength design prolongs life and lowers owning and operating costs
  • Broad operating speed range

Advanced Digital Engine Management

ADEM A3 control system providing integrated ignition, speed governing, protection, and controls, including detonation-sensitive variable ignition timing. ADEM A3 has improved: user interface, display system, shutdown controls, and system diagnostics.

Lean Burn Engine Technology

Lean-burn engines operate with large amounts of excess air. The excess air absorbs heat during combustion reducing the combustion temperature and pressure, greatly reducing levels of NOx. Lean-burn design also provides longer component life and excellent fuel consumption.

Ease of Operation

Side covers on block allow for inspection of internal components

Full Range of Attachments

Large variety of factory-installed engine attachments reduces packaging time

Quality

Every Cat engine is manufactured to stringent quality standards in order to assure customer satisfaction.
