Advantages of DCEC 6CTAA8.3-G2-A G-Drive Engine

  • All models have strong versatility, high degree of serialization, and easy maintenance.

  • Advanced design and manufacturing: excellent manufacturing technology, reliable and durable.

  • Bosh in-line fuel pump: it burns more fully under high injection pressure, has less energy loss, stronger power, and stronger fuel adaptability.

  • Good reliability The integrated design of cylinder block and cylinder head prevents water and oil leakage of the engine. There are 40% fewer parts than the same type of engine, and the failure rate is greatly reduced.

  • The overall cylinder design is adopted, the parts are about 25% less than similar products, the failure rate is less, and the maintenance is convenient.

  • The cylinder liner adopts plateau honing cross cover, corrosion-resistant high-nickel cast iron piston, which greatly reduces oil loss and improves durability and service life.
