MAN what a V-six!

Written by 

German engine manufacturer MAN has a new Stage V compliant unit destined to power self propelled foragers and combine harvesters worldwide.

It will be unveiled in November at Agritechnica.

The D4276 is a 16.2 L, in-line 6-cylinder unit reckoned the most powerful of its type developed by the company specifically for farm machines.

Outputs range from 604 to 690hp (450 to 515kW) and maximum torque output of 3280 Nm at speeds as low as 1100 rpm, and it maintains constant torque up to 1500 rpm. 

Its exhaust gas after-treatment system uses two DOC/DPF modules coupled to an SCR system to meet Stage 5 emission standards.

The new engine block weighs only 1.28 tonnes. 

It is said to bridge the gap between the maker’s current D3876, 6-cylinder, in-line 15.3L (565 to 660hp) and the 24.2L, V12 layout D2862 (800 to 1100hp).
