CURSOR 16

  • 18-liter performance in a 13-liter package

  • Best-in-class power and torque density

  • Extreme robustness and reliability

  • Maximum productivity with low operating costs

Developed for the most demanding heavy duty needs, the Cursor family provides robust design for highly intensive missions in a wide range of agriculture and construction applications from 175 to 570 kW.

First launched in 1998, the Cursor range has gone through continuous improvements to keep pace with growing customers’ requirements in performance and efficiency, while complying with stricter emission regulations and always offering innovative technical contents, such as variable-geometry turbochargers, high-pressure common rail injection, new materials and breakthrough after-treatment technologies.

Specifically designed for heavy duty off-road applications, all Cursor engines share 6 cylinder architecture and EGR-free technology, ensuring optimal engine output with efficient combustion, resulting in effective performance and low cooling requirements, unchanged from Stage IIIA to Stage V for smart synergies across machine layouts.

Moreover, all engines meet Stage V regulation with maintenance-free HI-eSCR2 system, the latest generation of FPT’s longstanding experience in after-treatment technology, proven by more than 1 million systems sold to date.

No need of filter replacement over lifecycle, together with up to 600 hours oil change interval, minimizes running costs.

Cursor engines are available with 4 different displacement (8.7 / 11.1 / 12.9 / 15.9 lt) covering a wide range of applications, meeting the most demaning needs of agriculture, construction and industrial machines (such as large-size tractors, harvesting machines, wheel loaders, forestry equipment).

Awarded as “Diesel of the Year 2014”, Cursor16 was launched as brand new engine in 2014 based upon the longstanding off and on-road heritage of Cursor family. Cursor16 was originally applied on record-breaking Combine Harvester and is the only 16-liter on the market specifically designed and validated for industrial applications, delivering 18-liter performance in a 13 liter engine package

Features & benefits

PRODUCTIVITY AND EFFICIENCY
NO EGR architecture, latest generation “Heavy Duty” Common Rail injection up to 2200 bar, combined with the use of steel pistons and an FPT-developed double re-entrant combustion bowl, ensure optimal combustion efficiency
Ball-bearing Wastegate (WG) turbocharger further improves dynamic response and guarantees best in class performance (up to +10% power density and torque density Vs. market average)
With up to 570kW power output, Cursor16 delivers 18 lt-like performance in a 13 lt package, with leading power-to-weight ratio (0,5 hp/kg).
The HI-eSCR2 system does not require any parked regeneration avoiding unplanned stops maximizing uptime.

MAINTENANCE
FPT’s patented HI-eSCR2 system is a maintenance free, “fit and forget” solution ensuring low operating costs and maximizing vehicle uptime.

RELIABILITY
No additional complexity thanks to no-EGR architecture, ensuring effective performance
High-resistance cylinder head in compacted graphite iron (CGI) and more than 20.000 hours of bench-test specifically dedicated to off-road missions, make the Cursor16 a strong and reliable solution

PRODUCTIVITY, PERFORMANCE, EFFICIENCY
NO EGR architecture, latest generation “Heavy Duty” Common Rail injection up to 2200 bar, combined with the use of steel pistons and a FPT-developed double re-entrant combustion bowl, ensure optimal combustion efficiency. Ball-bearing Wastegate (WG) turbocharger further improves dynamic response and guarantees best in class performance (up to +10% power density and torque density Vs. market average). The HI-eSCR system is regeneration-free, allowing continuous operation avoiding unplanned stops during daily activities, especially when operating in indoor environments, thus improving uptime.
MAINTENANCE
Avoiding the use of DPF, the FPT’s patented HI-eSCR system represents a maintenance free “fit and forget” solution ensuring low operating costs and maximizing vehicle uptime.
RELIABILITY
No DPF and “regeneration free” ATS system to avoid any risk of system clogging while ensuring safe operations even in dusty environments. All-new compacted graphite iron (CGI) cylinder head grants higher resistance with lower weight and, together with re-inforced engine structure, ensure robustness and reliability in any operating condition.
COMPACT LAYOUT<
Cursor 16 is the most compact 16-liter engine on the market (-7% Vs competitor average), and best-in-class for power-to-weight ratio (+15% Vs competitor average at 0,5 hp / kg).
