Detroit diesel DD15 Engine

Detroit Diesel DD15 Engine

The heavy duty DD15 is the latest innovation from Detroit Diesel. Heralding a new era in advanced engine technology, the DD15 boasts unparalleled power and a long list of groundbreaking features.

Serviceability:

  • Breakthrough innovation called Amplified Common Rail Fuel System (ACRS) which delivers the fastest torque responsein its class.
  • Turbo compounding system which recovers normally wasted exhaust gases and converts them into fuel efficient reusable power
  • Excellent fuel economy and low cost in ownership.
  • Smoother, quieter engine with integrated Jacobs Engine Brake means lower emissions, lower noise and reduced vibration.
  • Longer maintenance intervals and better serviceability with modularly built engine sub-systems.

DETROIT DIESEL DD13 ENGINE

DETROIT DIESEL DD13 ENGINE

Fuel-efficient design delivers bottom-line benefits. Designed specifically for intrastate local distribution and vocational applications, the DD13 delivers a smooth, quiet ride and improved fuel economy.

Economy:

  • Smart, fuel-efficient design makes the most of every litre.
  • Amplified Common Rail Fuel System (ACRS) optimises each injection event to minimise fuel consumption.
  • Advanced cooling system allows for decreased fan on time, minimising fuel consumption.

Serviceability:

  • Lower your cost of ownership with easier serviceability.
  • Longest scheduled maintenance intervals in its class.
  • Oil, coolant and fuel filters are positioned above the frame rails for easier, faster and cleaner filter changes.
  • 65% parts commonality with DD15 means unmatched parts availability.
  • Maintenance-free crankcase breather.

Performance:

  • Meet your deadline every time. Enjoy less shifting with an extremely wide and flat torque curve.
  • Three-stage integrated Jacobs brake offers quieter engine braking and provides superior braking horsepower  for extended service brake life.
  • Overall robust design provides B50 life of 1 million kilometres.
  • Sturdy rear gear train and ribbed cast iron block minimise noise vibration harshness (NVH)

CUMMINS ISX EGR ENGINES 

CUMMINS ISX AND SIGNATURE ENGINES

Cummins ISX engines are legendary in the Australian market.

They are electronically up-rateable from 485 hp/1850 lb ft to the Signature 600 hp/2050 lb ft without any hardware changes.

The Cummins EGR engines have cooled EGR as the core technology.  Cooled EGR is a simple self-contained sub-system on the engine requiring no changes to the proven Cummins 15-litre base engine design

Reliability

Evolutionary engine upgrades are incorporated in the ADR80/03 ISX and Signature to further improve reliability and durability.

driveability and performance

The air-fuel ratio has been recalibrated for improved throttle response, and power and torque delivery are very smooth, even at low rpm. All ratings from the 485 hp ISX to the top of the line Signature 600 deliver best-in-industry engine brake performance of 600 retarding horsepower.

CUMMINS X15 ENGINE

CUMMINS ISLE5 ENGINE

Cummins X15 engines are legendary in the Australian market.

They are electronically up-rateable from 485 hp/1850 lb ft to 600 hp/2050 lb ft without any hardware changes.  The Cummins X15 e5 - SCR engines use the base ISX engine but incorporate a new common rail fuel system, a wastegate turbocharger and a single overhead camshaft.  The SCR technology uses an exhaust after treatment system which converts nitrogen oxides (NOx) in the exhaust stream into harmless gasses.  This means engine combustion can be optimised for improved fuel economy and reduced heat rejection.

Reliability

Evolutionary engine upgrades are incorporated in the ADR80/03 X15 and Signature X15 to further improve reliability and durability.

driveability and performance

The air-fuel ratio has been recalibrated for improved throttle response, and power and torque delivery are very smooth due to the new software advancements of the X15 range, even at low rpm the engine is very responsive. All ratings from the 485 hp ISX to the top of the line Signature 600 include the ADEPT software which includes “Smart Coast and Smart Torque 2 Engine management Technology.

environmental credentials

The X15 range of engines is a true e5 platform meeting all current emission ratings and will maintain the same Base Platform for any future Emission changes.
