Engines that we use

Updated: May 16, 2023

The engine of our company

Our wide range of products can be divided mainly into 3 categories: zero-emission lighting towers, engine powered lighting towers and without engine lighting towers. This article focuses on the engine powered ones. For our gen-set powered lighting towers we use mainly two kinds of engine: Kohler engines and Yanmar engines.


Our engines


The engines we use are renowned for being long lasting. All of them are powered with diesel fuel. The type of models we use are:


Yanmar 2TNV70 or Kohler KDW 702: These two kinds are used for ASTRID EVO, ASTRID PRO, OKAPI PRO, FENIX and MANTIS lighting towers with 1500 rpm.


Yanmar 3TNM68 or Kohler KDW 702: These two kinds are used for ASTRID MINE and OKAPI MINE lighting towers with 1500 rpm.


Yanmar L 70 or Kohler 15KD350: These two kinds are used for FENIX and MANTIS lighting towers with 3000 rpm.


Kohler KDI 1903 M: This kind of engine is used for POLAR lighting tower with 1500 rpm.


As we said all the engines we install on, are supplied by diesel fuel; with the exception of the model PEGASO lighting tower, that is gasoline powered. For this product, we use the ARION generator.


ARION generator

Among our products we also provide generators, the ARION series, that belongs to our petrol-powered range. They are compact, reliable and of high quality. Arion generators have a modern design and they are extremely easy to use. We offer three models of it: ARION 3000, ARION 6000 and ARION 7000. They have different technical specifications, if you want to know more, download the data sheet below.

Kohler

Kohler is an American company; among their products we find the most used for our lighting towers:


Kohler KDW 702: it is a liquid-cooled diesel engine, it has an exceptional power. Fast-acting fuel injection technology delivers the punch needed and fuel savings expected. The belt-driven, overhead camshaft delivers low-turbulence performance for near-silent operation. Among its features: the cast-iron block construction ensures durability and lasting performance.

Technical specifications: 1500 rpm, Liquid Cooling, 2 cylinders.


Kohler 15KD350: the air-cooled diesel engines are engineered with state-of-art air filters to increase durability and lengthen service intervals with the engine's cast iron cylinder liners. Among its features you can find: rugged design for the most extreme conditions; integrated sound dampener provides reduced noise levels; equipped with a larger air filtration cartridge; cyclonic separator with one-way valve for dust discharge; lowest fuel consumption; lowest oil consumption; highest axial load (2000 N).

Technical specifications: 3000 rpm, Air Cooled, single cylinder.


Kohler KDI 1903 M: This diesel engine has state-of-the-art technology to control the combustion process, it's a diesel that delivers more power and more torque in a smaller frame. Thus, it maintains performance, but downsizes the engine. Its features are: one engine platform for the entire world; smart emission management system; excellent fuel efficiency; long service intervals; low noise, low vibration.

Technical specifications: 1500 rpm, Liquid Cooling, 3 cylinders.


Yanmar

The following engines are made by Yanmar, a Japanese company. Among them we find the most used for our lighting towers: Yanmar 2TNV70

Technical specifications: 1500 rpm, Liquid Cooling, 2 cylinders.

Yanmar 3TNM68

Technical specifications: 1500 rpm, Liquid Cooling, 3 cylinders.

Yanmar L 70

Technical specifications: 3000 rpm, air cooled, single cylinder.


The choice to use Yanmar engines is dictated by the quality of their products and their environmental spirit. Design with direct injection technology, maximum combustion efficiency is achieved through an ideal match between the combustion chamber and injection system. This means a powerful, yet environmentally friendly engine.
