Proven components combine to deliver the most durable, reliable power train in the industry, keeping costs low and production high.
Proven Cat engines provide the power and torque rise for excellent lugging in tough loading conditions.
The fuel system and Electronic Control Module on the C18 tractor engine economically and precisely deliver fuel.
High injection pressures, independent of engine speed, decrease smoke and emissions while improving response.
Variable Injection Timing
Variable injection timing and duration improve fuel efficiency and cold starting, decrease smoke and emissions.
Injection Rate Shaping
Injection rate shaping reduces emission and engine noise.
Fewer mechanical parts in the fuel system improves reliability.
Electronic control provides automatic altitude deration and automatic air filter restriction deration.
Multiple Horsepower Ratings
Multiple horsepower ratings limit output in first and second gears.
Neutral Start Control
Neutral start control prevents engine from starting unless transmission is in neutral.
Throttle back-up provides the operator with a preset engine speed control in the event of a throttle input failure.
The throttle lock allows the operator the capability of locking both engines at any operating level.
Directional Shift Management
Directional shift management prevents the operator from shifting out of neutral when engine rpm is above a preset level.
Controlled Throttle Shifting
Controlled throttle shifting increases drive train life by reducing the fuel injection rate just prior to shifting.
Automatic Ether Starting Aid
Automatic ether starting aid greatly improves cold weather starting.
Electronic Ground Level Shutoff
Electronic ground level shutoff enables the operator to stop the engine from the ground with the flip of a switch.
Steel Spacer Plate
Steel spacer plate between the block and head eliminates the need for counterbores and helps prevent associated cracking problems.
Oil-cooled pistons and full-length water-cooled cylinder liners provide maximum heat transfer for longer component life.
The aftercooler lowers intake charge air temperature to increase power and reduce thermal stresses that can cause premature wear of pistons, rings, and liners.
Engine Oil Cooler
Engine oil cooler maintains optimum oil temperature for proper cooling and longer lubricant life.
Laminated thermal-shield improves tractor protection by reducing the temperature of exposed engine surfaces, cools engine and operating compartments, extends hose and wiring life.
Standard Hydraulic Retarder
An optional hydraulic retarder can extend brake life.
Eight-speed power shift transmission provides automatic, on-the-go shifting for simple, reliable operation.
Neutral Coast Inhibitor Control
Neutral coast inhibitor control helps prevent the transmission from shifting to neutral at speeds above 8.1 km/h (5 mph).
Top Gear Control
Top gear control helps prevent shifting above a programmed gear to better regulate haul road speeds.
Electronic Programmable Transmission Control (EPTC II)
Electronic Programmable Transmission Control (EPTC II) records both current and intermittent faults.
