RSM 2400 models come with X12 series engines (11.8L displacement). Cummins X12 engines offer the best specific power-to-weight ratio in the class, delivering up to 439 hp with a weight as low as 862 kg.
The engine is equipped with a variable geometry turbocharger providing a 56 % increase in torque (up to 2,034 Nm), and thereby a faster response to load increase at low rpm. High engine efficiency provides superior fuel consumption performance (from 197 g/kWh). No major modifications are required in the no-EGR configuration to meet Stage V emission standards, which allows for a simpler engine design.
QUADSHIFT® MANUAL TRANSMISSION
Quadshift® III 12x4 manual transmission comes standard. This transmission has 3 speed ranges. Each range has 4 synchronized speeds that are smoothly shifted. The gear ratios are matched for flexibility and maximum performance within the main range from 4.8 to 16 km/h. Simple design, reliability, manual control in all driving modes are the main benefits of the mechanical transmission.
High torque transmitted by the mechanical transmission to the tractor wheels eliminates any unwanted slip losses while maintaining high fuel efficiency.
