1103D-33TA Industrial Diesel Engine

< Back


The 1103 range provides cost effective power solutions and is proving particularly popular with operators of tractors. The engines meet EU Stage II/Stage IIIA and U.S. EPA Tier 2/Tier 3 equivalent emissions standards. The compact 3.3 litre engines have a cylinder head and block design that gives mastery of air control, maintains bore roundness under pressure, and reduces combustion and mechanical noise. High quality oil and fuel filtration deliver improved reliability and durability.

The 1103D engines – which deliver 36.9-58 kW (49.5-77.8 hp) at 2200 rpm – are particularly suitable for tractors and compact industrial applications, and have features and benefits that really meet your industrial power applications needs.

Compact package size

The compact dimensions of the 3 cylinder engine with stressed block options, meet the requirements for agricultural and compact industrial applications. Common hook-up points across the 1100 Series range enable easier upgrade to higher emissions Stages/Tiers and larger 4 and 6 cylinder engines.

Designed as a 3 cylinder engine

The 1103 range includes a cylinder block design that ensures bore roundness is maintained under pressure, as well as giving lower combustion and mechanical noise.

Ease of maintenance

The engines have mechanical fuel injection for ease of maintenance with 500 hour service intervals. And single side service components, for ease of end user servicing.
