Engine

Biodiesel Capability Up to B20¬Ļ
Bore 4 in
Displacement 428 in³
Emissions Meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, EU Stage V, and Japan 2014 emission standards.
Engine Model Cat C7.1
Engine Power - ISO 14396 202 HP
Engine Power - ISO 14396 (DIN) 205 hp (metric)
Net Power - ISO 9249 201 HP
Net Power - ISO 9249 (DIN) 204 hp (metric)
Note (1) Net power advertised is the power available at the flywheel when the engine is equipped with fan, air intake system, exhaust system and alternator with engine speed at 2,200 rpm. Advertised power is tested per the specified standard in effect at the time of manufacture.
Note (2) ¬ĻCat diesel engines are required to use ULSD (ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel with 15 ppm of sulfur or less) or ULSD blended with the following lower-carbon intensity fuels** up to: 20% biodiesel FAME (fatty acid methyl ester)* or 100% renewable diesel, HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil) and GTL (gas-to-liquid) fuels. Refer to guidelines for successful application. Please consult your Cat dealer or ‚ÄúCaterpillar Machine Fluids Recommendations‚ÄĚ (SEBU6250) for details. *Engines with no aftertreatment devices can use higher blends, up to 100% biodiesel (for use of blends higher than 20% biodiesel, consult your Cat dealer). **Tailpipe greenhouse gas emissions from lower-carbon intensity fuels are essentially the same as traditional fuels.
