GOMACO GT 3600 Hybrid

Feb. 5, 2024
Curb & gutter unit runs on both diesel and lithium-ion batteries.

The GOMACO GT 3600 Hybrid is a prototype curb and gutter machine that is powered by a 74-horsepower engine and a 48V generator/motor with four to six lithium-ion batteries providing supplemental power when needed.

The diesel engine always operates at its peak efficiency point, the company says. When less than peak power is required, the excess power operates the generator/motor in “generator mode” to charge the lithium-ion batteries. When more than 74 horsepower is required, the exclusive G+ control system switches the generator/motor into “motor mode” to provide extra horsepower.

The company expects an estimated 10 to 15% fuel savings or more, based on machine application and job site conditions. No DEF is required.
