Bauma: New launch of MAN Engines’ 9-litre off-road D1556 engine for construction machinery
At the Bauma trade fair’s media days, MAN Engines will be exhibiting the 9-litre-displacement D1556 diesel engine for construction machinery. This straight-six power unit delivers between 205 and 324 kW (275 and 434 hp). Its highest power variant achieves a maximum torque of 1,970 Nm at speeds between 1,150 rpm and 1,300 rpm. Even at low speeds, the MAN D1556 delivers high torque. And with a dry weight of just 860 kg, it is the lightest off-road engine in its displacement class. “With the D1556, the MAN Engines engineers have succeeded in developing an engine with a high power-to-weight ratio and compactness that is perfectly suited to the requirements of off-road applications. In addition, as the first 9-litre engine from MAN Engines, it completes our engine portfolio for construction machinery and closes the gap in our range between the well-established MAN D0836 range with 6.9-litre displacement and the D2676 with 12.4-litre displacement,” explains Hubert Gossner, head of off-road sales at MAN Engines.
