Motor graders manufactured by Champion now come standard with Cummins QSB Tier 3 electronic diesel engines.
As of Dec. 1, 2008, motor graders manufactured by Champion come standard with Cummins QSB Tier 3 electronic diesel engines. These include the new Champion C110 C and C116 C Series production-class graders, powered by the turbocharged Cummins QSB6.7 in-line, six-cylinder engine model generating 120 horsepower. The smaller Champion C60 C/C66C, C70 C and C80 C/C86 C Series models are equipped with the turbocharged Cummins QSB4.5 in-line, four-cylinder engine model generating 110 horsepower. The engine move, explains Champion executive vice president Bryan Abernathy, will help the grader manufacturer prepare for future Tier 4 emissions requirements. Under the PowerMatch program, Cummins partners with OEM engineers to test and match the power of QSB engines to specific equipment models and applications using advanced electronics.
Cat 120M2 and 12M2 motor graders have been upgraded with Tier 4-I engines, the C7.1 ACERT and C9.3 ACERT, respectively.
The 865B VHP is the first model available in Case Construction Equipment’s new B-Series motor-grader range. The new variable-horsepower machine incorporates hydraulic-system refinements, new operator’s station that provides added amenities, and a different engine that delivers significantly more torque to the drive wheels than its predecessor model.
