C Series mid-size excavators feature a highly reliable 4-cylinder 56 hp Isuzu Motor engine. The turbo-charged system (together with the intercooler) ensures a prompt and powerful response to loads and generates more power from every drop of fuel.
You don’t use more fuel than you need either! The standard Auto-Idle system saves fuel and cuts emissions by automatically reducing engine speed (up to 1200 rpm) after 5 seconds of machine inactivity. If the idle shut down function detects the continuous low idle condition, it automatically stops the engine, further reducing emissions and fuel consumption.
Both auto-idle and idle shut down functions can easily be deactivated from the instrument cluster. The multi-stage injection of the electronic common rail engine ensures optimised combustion, resulting in excellent fuel economy, less particle emissions, and lower noise.
Three different working modes (SP, H, Auto) that add more fuel savings without compromising on performance.
- A AUTO MODE: A-Mode is most appropriate for grading, lifting, and precision work.
- H HEAVY MODE: H-Mode delivers the best balance between productivity and fuel economy.
- SP SPEED PRIORITY MODE: SP-Mode provides extra speed and power for the most demanding jobs that require maximum productivity.
