The Cat C18 engine provides efficient fuel management for quick response, high productivity and exceptional service life. Torque rise effectively matches transmission shift points for maximum efficiency and fast cycle times. Mechanically Actuated, Electronic Unit Injection (MEUI™) high-pressure, direct injection fuel system electronically monitors operator demands and sensor inputs to optimize engine performance. Air-to-air aftercooling provides improved fuel economy by packing cooler, denser air into cylinders for more complete combustion of fuel and lower emissions. Turbo is water cooled to improve performance and service life.

  • Controlled Throttle Shifting – Regulates engine RPM, torque converter lock-up and transmission clutch engagement for smoother shifts and longer component life.
  •     
  • Economy Shift Mode – Decreases fuel consumption, lowers noise levels and potentially longer engine life.
  •     
  • Directional Shift Management – Regulates engine speed to prevent damage caused by high speed directional changes.
  •     
  • Body-up Shift Inhibitor – Prevents the transmission from shifting above a pre-programmed gear without the body fully lowered.
