Hatz begins production of downsized engine


Hatz has started series production on a downsized three-cylinder engine. The new 3H50TIC unit is the first of four 3H50 variants that will be coming to market for industrial machines in the power category up to 62kW.

Production of the compact but robust engine started this month at the Ruhstorf an der Rott plant in Southeast Bavaria, Germany. Its arrival follows the company’s market launch of a liquid-cooled, four-cylinder H-series engine four years ago but this new product is able to provide the same power in a smaller engine.

Majority shareholder and chairman of the advisory board Wolfram Hatz said, “As a foresighted solution for EU Stage V without particulate filter, the most compact H-series engine, the 3H50T, with 18.4kW (24.6hp), also offers the highest torque in its class, 130Nm.

“At the upper end of the power range, our four-cylinder 4H50TI impresses with 62kW (83hp) and 265Nm with a displacement of just 2 liters. I am certain that, not only with the three-cylinder versions, we have launched an engine concept onto the market that will continue to lastingly influence the development of working machines in the future.”

The 3H50 engines will also be available in further variants during the course of the year. Depending on application area and the applicable emissions standards, customers can also choose between the 3H50TI or the TICD variant (with turbocharger, intercooler, catalytic converter and particulate filter) that will also enter series production later this year.
