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.
The GD655-6 motor grader is a 218-horsepower unit with closed-center, load-sensing hydraulics.
The 12 models (670G/GP, 672G/GP, 770G/GP, 772G/GP, 870G/GP, 872G/GP) in John Deere’s G Series motor grader line, with net horsepower ranging from 220 to 287, now have John Deere PowerTech Tier 4-Final engines.
