Emissions The reference to Tier 4 Final/Stage IV includes U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, EU Stage IV, Japan 2014 (Tier 4 Final), as well as Korea Tier 4 Final emission standards.
Note (1) The power ratings apply at rated speed of 1,800 rpm when tested under the conditions for the specified standard.
Note (2) The net power advertised is the power available at the flywheel when the engine is equipped with alternator, air cleaner, muffler and fan at minimum speed.
Note (3) Net power when the fan is at maximum speed is 254 kW (341 hp) per the SAE reference conditions.
Note (4) DEF used in Cat SCR systems must meet the requirements outlined in the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 22241-1. ISO 22241-1 requirements are met by many brands of DEF, including those that carry the AdBlue or API certifications.
Sound Levels
Note (1) The operator sound exposure Leq (equivalent sound pressure level) measured according to the work cycle procedures specified in ANSI/SAE J1166 OCT98 is 76 dB(A), for the cab offered by Caterpillar, when properly installed and maintained and tested with the doors and windows closed.
Note (2) Hearing protection may be needed when operating with an open operator station and cab (when not properly maintained or doors/windows open) for extended periods or in noisy environments.
