Yanmar develops customized engine for Puckett pavers


Yanmar’s Mastry Engine Center has developed a highly customized engine for the latest Puckett Equipment asphalt pavers.

Florida-based system integrators Mastry adapted the 3TNV88C-DYEM YANMAR Tier 4F engine to create a unique solution when Puckett decided to upgrade the engine driving its 500 Series pavers from EPA Tier 4I to EPA Tier 4F.

Following the creation of an approved 3-D model, Mastry’s engineers moved the service side of the engine to the opposite side and incorporated special drain hose panels as an extra feature, developing the production unit in under 60 days.

Paul Puckett, of Puckett Equipment Inc., said: “We selected YANMAR and Mastry because of the need to find a proven Tier 4 diesel engine that would fit on our pavers without a lot of structural changes. Weight, dimensions, and horsepower were critical. Being in the industry for so long, we had heard the great reviews of the YANMAR engines that Mastry markets.

“After contacting Mastry and other dealers, we selected Mastry because of the efforts and solutions made by their sales and engineering departments to supply us with an engine that would meet our requirements. The sales department came up with a unit that had the hp and dimensions we needed. The engineering department designed modifications we needed to successfully mount the engine into our pavers. We were very pleased with the final result.”

Mastry’s specific, application-focused approach to solving problems is the key to ensuring customer satisfaction.

Our solution for Puckett Equipment is one example of the way we are prepared to commit to the extra design and development work for each individual customer,” said Arley Bedellion, industrial sales manager, Mastry. “We will always take time to research our customers’ applications and provide them with a complete package.”

With an ECU-controlled common rail direct-injection system, the 35hp YANMAR engine is compliant with EPA Tier 4 exhaust emissions regulations. It also assures more precise fuel delivery and control and a superior exhaust treatment system, for increased fuel economy, reduced emissions and improved performance.
