Excavator Engines

Enhanced performance of wheel loader and excavator drive technology

For demanding mining applications, we offer you a wide range of diesel engines for heavy-duty continuous use. Our mtu Series 4000 PowerPacks are easily able to run at their limit with practically no breaks. They are specially designed to withstand the typically fast and material-stressing load alternation cycles that large mining excavators and wheel loaders generate, and guarantee full performance all the time with their excellent transient load characteristics. 

This means that deep load and folding excavators with mtu mining engines have the shortest load cycles even when operating at maximum load. Wheel loaders with mtu engines also have no trouble at all with 100% load performance.
