Cargotec USA Inc. said it has expanded its Ottawa Truck trailer spotter line with the introduction of a gasoline-powered model. Featuring a Ford 6.8L 3-Valve V10 Gasoline Engine, the truck meets 2012 EPA emissions and California Air Resources Board (CARB) standards for on-road vehicle emissions.
“Because it utilizes standard unleaded 87 octane fuel and has an automotive type catalytic convertor exhaust system, emissions are extremely low,” said David Wood, Cargotec’s director of Terminal Tractors in North America. “This is especially important in California and other markets where terminal tractors are oftentimes used in highly urbanized areas where strict regulations limit the use of traditional diesel-powered units.
Compared to a comparably-equipped diesel powered terminal tractor, the gasoline-powered version takes less time to reach top speeds and has higher maximum speeds in both third and fourth gears, the company said. The Ford 6.8L 3-Valve V10 engine provides 240 HP and 450 ft.-lb. of torque at 2,800 RPM for superior performance and handling characteristics demanded by ports and distribution terminal ...
... operators, the maker added. It is coupled with an Allison 3000 RDS transmission with 1-3 gears, maximum speed of 33.2 MPH and 1-4 gears, maximum speed of 45 mph. The rear axle is the Meritor RS-24-160 with 7.17:1 ratio and all axle ratio options are available. Also available is the Meritor RS-23-186 with 7.83:1 ratio for DOT/EPA terminal tractors under 33 MPH, 116-in. wheelbase.
The gasoline powertrain setup is available with both Ottawa 4×2 Off-Road and 4×2 DOT/EPA terminal tractors. Special features include a vertical exhaust system with catalytic muffler, OBD II and J1939 diagnostic connections under the dash, 50-gal. step-type fuel tank mounted on driver’s side, Ford starter and 175 amp alternator and Ford flat panel type air cleaner. Two batteries are standard.
In addition to the gasoline-powered Ottawa, Cargotec said it offers an expanding portfolio of eco-friendly terminal tractors including machines powered by alternative fuels, such as compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG).
