Perkins Engines’ 1106D-E66TA engine is a six cylinder unit that delivers up to 186 kW (250 bhp) and over 1000 Nm (770 lb-ft) of torque, providing greater productivity through an improved power to weight ratio. The engine offers improved performance all round including a 29 per cent increase in power over the Tier 2/Stage II product, a hike of 41 per cent in available torque, thanks largely to its increased displacement of 6.6 litres, new high pressure, common rail fuel system, reworked turbocharger geometry and refinements to the manifold and combustion areas. The 1106D-E66TA also utilises proven components of Caterpillar ACERT technology, which provides excellent fuel economy and low heat rejection, allowing customers to use a more compact cooling group. In terms of refinement the unit has been designed to take noise out at the source. Engine sound levels have been reduced by up to 5dB(A) giving a smooth noise signature across the speed range. Indeed at full load the 1106D-E66TA operates at under 88dB(A).
