Emissions

Meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, EU Stage IV emission standards. U.S. EPA Tier 4 Interim, EU Stage IIIB configurations are also available using EPA or EU Flexibility Process.

Reliable, Quiet and Durable Power

World-class manufacturing capability and processes coupled with proven core engine designs assure reliability, quiet operation, and many hours of productive life.

Fuel Efficiency

Fuel consumption optimized to match operating cycles of a wide range of equipment and applications while maintaining low operating costs.

Fuel & Oil

Tier 4 Interim or Tier 4 Final, Stage IIIB or Stage IV engines require Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuel containing a maximum of 15 ppm sulfur, and new oil formulations to support the new technology. Cat® engines are designed to accommodate B20 biofuel. Your Cat dealer can provide more information regarding fuel and oil.

Broad Application Range

Industry leading range of factory configurable ratings and options for agricultural, material handling, construction, mining, aircraft ground support, and other industrial applications.

Package

Exceptional power density enables standardization across numerous applications. Available factory-installed configurations: full package, including radiator and Clean Emissions Module (CEM); package with CEM, but no radiator; and package with radiator installed, but CEM shipped loose.

Low Cost Maintenance

Worldwide service delivers ease of maintenance and simplifies the servicing routine. If applicable, minimum 5000-hour diesel particulate filter (DPF) ash service interval enables low-cost maintenance. Capable of optimal oil change intervals of up to 500-hours, depending on rating, application, operating conditions, and maintenance practices. Engine B10 life up to 10000 hours for Tier 4 Final, Stage IV. The S·O·SSM program is available from your Cat dealer to determine oil change intervals and provide optimal performance.
