Cummins has unveiled a new generation of clean off-road engines that meet China National Stage IV emissions (CS IV) which started on December 1st, 2022.
The upgraded engines, with displacements from 2.8 to 15-liters, range from 48-674 hp (36-503 kW). They achieve higher power output and torque than their predecessors, and continue to bring proven, premium performance ideally suited for the toughest duty cycles.
The integration of Cummins latest aftertreatment systems, the single module and switchback, with leading combustion and air handling technology allows the B6.7, L9, X12 and M15 CS IV engines to be EGR free, offering benefits of improved NOx conversion efficiency and better fuel economy. Their multiple configurations fit diversified off-road applications with easier installation into equipment, and ease for service and maintenance.
