Our own Volvo D8K engine is a top performer in any situation. When tight manoeuvring is required, its fast response can be relied upon every time. And with alternatives for synthetic diesel and biodiesel you can operate when more stringent regulations apply.
This feature helps you maintain constant revs in your selected gear. Particularly useful on slippery and bumpy road surfaces.
Choose between an exhaust brake, or a compression and exhaust brake that will save both your brake pads and discs.
The engine switches off after idling for a set period of time. It saves fuel and reduces your emissions – good for your bottom line and the environment.
One of the secrets behind the D8K engine’s driveability is the variable geometry turbo. It contributes to the quick response at low revs. And it gives you access to a high torque in any driving situation.
The high-pressure electronic injection is provided by common rail, with a maximum pressure of 2000 bar.
Our diesel engines are designed to deliver performance for your needs. And minimizing your environmental footprint. To meet the Euro 6 regulations, we combine selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR).
