Cut down fuel consumption with Engine Auto Shut Down

The Engine Auto Shut Down option is an easy way to cut down fuel consumption and decrease total costs. And while saving

money, you also put less strain on the environment. Depending on the situation a construction machine will often be idling for as much as 40 – 60 percent of its operating time. The Engine Auto Shut Down reduces this without impacting on productivity. It shuts down the engine when idling for more than 4 minutes when the machine is stationary and not in gear.


Reduced maintenance costs:

You are able to reduce your maintenance costs since you get longer service intervals. With reduced maintenance costs and less down time, you are able to achieve better efficiency.


Available for: F-Series Articulated Haulers & F-Series and G-Series Wheel Loaders



Increased safety with Speed Limiter

speed limiter

The speed limiter option makes it possible to operate in worksites and countries where speed limitations are imposed. It automatically regulates maximum speed and removes the possibility for the operator to increase the speed and exceed the limit.

Legal requirement or not, this means a safer working environment.

Available for: F-Series Articulated Haulers & F-Series and G-Series Wheel Loaders





Protect your engine from damage caused by warning signals being overridden

The Increased Engine Protection option 

protects the engine from further damage due to problems in different engine systems, and thus reducing unnecessary and costly downtime. It automatically idles

 and shuts down the engine if critical levels are reached, such as coolant level and temperature, oil pressure and temperature, and boost pressure and temperature.


Extra protection:

This option prevents breakdowns caused by overriding of alarms and provides extra protection.


Available for: Wheel Loaders & F-Series



Cool down with Engine Shut Down Timer

Before shutting down the engine at the end of a hard shift, the operator should let it idle for at least one minute to cool down.

 With the Engine Shut Down Timer option, the engine will run on idle automatically

before shutting down. This means that the operator can leave the cab, lock the machine and finish work without having to wait.


Longer lifetime and less wear of engine

This option helps the operator follow the correct procedure for stopping the machine, and thus it gives the machine’s turbocharger longer lifetime and prevents unnecessary wear of engine.
