Engine Design

- Industry-leading power with ambient-based rating capability - ADEM A4 engine control system provides complete engine control, monitoring, and protection while maintaining emissions. - Widest fuel tolerance in the industry for application flexibility - Proven reliability and durability with the lowest owning and operating costs - Factory-installed thermostats

Emissions

Meets U.S. EPA Spark Ignited Stationary NSPS Emissions for 2010 with the use of an oxidation catalyst

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

- High-strength pan and rails for excellent mounting and stability - Side covers on block allow for inspection of internal components

Advanced Digital Engine Management

ADEM A4 engine management system integrates speed control, air/fuel ratio control, and ignition/detonation controls into a complete engine management system. ADEM A4 has improved: user interface, display system, shutdown controls, and system diagnostics.

Full Range of Attachments

Large variety of factory-installed engine attachments reduces packaging time.

Testing

Every engine is full-load tested to ensure proper engine performance.
