Emissions

Meets U.S. EPA Spark Ignited Stationary NSPS Emissions for 2010/11 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 A3 engine management system integrates speed control, air/fuel ratio control, and ignition/detonation controls into a complete engine management system. ADEM A3 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.
