Two Cat engines receive Tier 4 certification
By Lindsey Anderson20 September 2010
Caterpillar's new Cat C13 ACERT and C15 ACERT engines for off-road machinery have received the US Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Tier 4 emissions certification. The engines are the company's latest to receive certification in the 130 to 560 kW power category.
Cat's C9.3 ACERT engine family was previously certified and its 13 and 15-liter counterparts are for use by customers in industrial, agriculture and petroleum markets.
"Our Tier 4 focus is not just about emissions - it is about the customer, as well," said marketing and product support vice president, Steve Gosselin. "Our ultimate goal is to exceed expectations by developing products that are more efficient, add more customer value and reduce emissions without sacrificing performance."
