I don’t think 16L’s is comfortable at 800hp at a 100% duty cycle.

Think the only sure thing is no Cat.

I also think MTU is a great diesel engine manufacturer.
I joked about the german tanks, but 90% of german military runs MTU engines. MB 873 Ka-501 in the MBT was awesome,

But I just can't see something in the interesting hp range atm.

For a rough overview of Service stations look at page 20 of thier agriculture brochure:

Some even in Canada :P

Is the 1600 a possible engine? V8 or V10.

I know some on this forum don't have any love for Cat power, but I think a proven industrial engine like this C27 would make sense in North American farm equipment. 800 HP at 1800 rpm with 100% duty cycle. 2700 ft/lbs at 1400. And the power and torque go up sharply at the 80% and 50% duty cycle ratings. I recently saw one and talked to a tech doing a midlife tune up at 18,000 hours. He was changing some injectors and putting in new cam shafts to make it reliable for the next half of its life. This is Cats real strength in engines. A totally different line than than the throw away 3116, 3126, C7, C9 and Perkapillar lines they have sold to compete in a low end market.

Fixed it!

And I think I could shoe horn that into a challenger tractor!

I have no doubt you could do it!! But it is pretty big. And weighs 6600 pounds and holds 40 gallons of fluids. But that just replaces the 4500 pound suitcase on the nose. I feel it would be an advantage having a really common North American engine for parts and service just like it has always been running Cummins and Cat in all the successful component tractors from the last 40-50 years.

I really wish Don would have the opportunity to own and run one of these in a new series Lexion so he could get the bad taste of that 3126 out of his mouth!

I have no fear Claas will have any engines that big nor any Cats in the upcoming lineup of combines.

I just heard a list of the changes and Claas has been listening. Sounds well worth a model change. For starters there is an ejector rod on the stone trap!

Nowhere to go but up on better stone trap cleaning, that has a bit of a Mickey Mouse sound to it though.
