Engine and transmissions
The Cursor 8 and 13 engines are retained for new Trakker, some versions with increased power ratings, culminating in the 500 hp version for the highest operating weights. All versions are equipped with the Cursor decompression engine brake but there is a new Combined Engine Brake introduced on the 410 hp Cursor 13 engine to give enhanced performance.
The transmission line up for new Trakker includes the 12 speed EuroTronic 2 automated transmission with steering column mounted gear change controls and ZF Ecosplit 16 speed transmissions with servoshift and the ZF Ecomid 9 speed transmissions on 310 and 330 hp engines.
Lasting torque, immediately dependable
A common feature of the Cursor engine range is to have maximum engine power and torque over a wide range of engine speeds. A feature of the variable geometry turbocharger is to provide for a very high engine toque at low engine speeds which can be maintained of a wide portion of the useful engine speed range. Similarly, the rated engine power occurs well before the rated engine speed and is maintained up to the rated engine speed. This provides excellent truck performance characteristics allowing gear up-shifting under arduous conditions to be made with the engine capable of still developing its maximum power.
All Cursor engines are certified and available meeting either Euro 4 or Euro 5 exhaust emission limits. In either case the engines exploit the Selective Catalytic Reduction exhaust after treatment ensuring optimum vehicle fuel consumption.
Powerful and reliable, Cursor engines have been designed to ensure not only excellent performance, but also low running costs, in addition to a higher driving comfort given their exceptional flexibility.
