Net output according to EC 582/2011

D13TC (EU6) – power/torque

Net output according to EC 582/2011

The D13TC is available with a 500 hp output. The torque level however, are higher than in other D13 engines. The 500 hp moves into D16 territory with 2800 Nm at the same low revs.

This is enabled through Turbo Compound technology, which utilises an extra turbine after the turbocharger to reuse excess energy from the exhausts. This energy is converted to torque directly on the crankshaft – producing a powerful and extremely fuel-efficient engine.

Power take-offs

A wide range of clutch-independent and clutch-dependent power take-offs are available – to drive all sorts of body equipment.

Clutch-independent power take-offs

PTER-DIN: Rear-mounted engine power take-off for direct drive of a hydraulic pump.
PTER1400: Rear-mounted engine power take-off with flange connection for hydraulic pump.
PTER-100: Rear-mounted engine power take-off with flange connection for hydraulic pump.

 

Clutch-dependent power take-offs

PTR-F: Connecting flange attachment and low-rev or high-rev.
PTR-FL/FH: Connecting flange attachment and low-rev or high-rev.
PTR-D/PTR-DM/PTR-DH: Low/medium/high-rev with DIN-connection for direct attachment of a hydraulic pump.
PTRD-F: High-rev with connecting flange attachment for direct-fitted propshaft.
PTRD-D: High-rev with dual drive. DIN connection front and rear for direct attachment of hydraulic pumps.
PTRD-D1: High-rev with dual drive. Connecting flange attachment at the rear and DIN attachment at the front.
PTRD-D2: High-rev with dual drive rear and single drive front. Two connecting flange attachments rear and one DIN attachment at the front.
