Yes, I would like to receive future marketing communications (such as email) from Caterpillar Inc., its affiliates and subsidiaries worldwide and the Caterpillar dealer network. Regardless of whether you decide to receive these marketing communications, Caterpillar will continue to send service/transactional messages, including those that have to do with any accounts that you may have with us.


The M 25 C, part of the MaK long-stroke engine generation, is based on the proven design characteristics of the M 20 C, M 32 C and M 43 C engine series. When developing this new engine generation, the objective was to achieve a high benefit level for the customer. In all design and development considerations, therefore, three criteria had the highest priority: reliability, economy and environmental compatibility. Other points of significance in the engine's design and development work were ease of maintenance, long maintenance intervals, long component life and ease of installation.

Intelligent simplicity

This MaK design principles is most clearly reflected in the reduction in the number of components. About 40 % of parts have been dispended. It has resulted in a marked gain in operational reliability and a reduction in operating costs.

Reliable energy supply

The complete diesel engine is notable for its ease of installation, reliable operation, ease of maintenance and good component accessibility.

Low fuel consumption

Ready for installation

In addition to many outstanding technical features, the long-stroke M 25 C engine is also easy to install and provides good maintenance access to all components.

Long maintenance intervals and component life

Complete propulsion system

The supply of complete propulsion systems is a market requirement which is becoming increasingly important.

Robust and simple

Reduction in the number of components

Environmentally-friendly due to low NOx and CO2 emissions

System responsibility and supply from a single source, accurately matched interfaces and coordinated delivery data control
