These are the latest addition to the common platform concept of 1100 Series diesel engines. Assembled on a new high technology production line, these ultra clean engines will provide a superior replacement for all marine six cylinder models. Frequent computerised checks during the production process ensure high build quality excellence is maintained. 

 
The new engines boast considerable increases to delivered power, torque and noise reduction. These have been achieved through changes to combustion areas, turbocharger geometry, increased cylinder displacement and significantly, the inclusion of a high pressure, common rail fuel system. These new engines incorporate components of Caterpillar ACERT™ technology. 
 
A complete fuel system, air cleaner and heat exchanger is supplied as standard. Choice is provided to customers through the availability of a large variety of standard specifications incorporating a choice of alternator and front PTO.

Powered by Your Needs

These engines offer a choice of standard build configurations to match the needs of customers for a diverse range of applications.
State of the Art Design
These engines utilise components of Caterpillar ACERT™ technology. This provides excellent fuel economy and low heat rejection.
