Sutphen Corp. is now offering Navistar's MaxxForce brand diesel engines in its Sutphen mid-mount aerial platforms and Monarch custom pumpers.
Buyers of those Sutphen custom apparatus now can specify the MaxxForce 13 big-bore diesel, which provides up to 475 horsepower and 1,700 pounds-feet of torque for fire and emergency operations.

"The performance ratings of the MaxxForce 13, especially the industry-leading low-end torque, provide our customers an engine option that matches Sutphen's reputation for setting engineering, technology, innovation, and durability standards in the fire apparatus industry," says David Rider, Sutphen sales manager.

In addition, MaxxForce Clean Burn Emissions Technology means no additional wheelbase length to accommodate additional tanks or exhaust hardware, no secondary operating fluid to add (urea), no additional driver training and ease of maintenance, says the company.

All key systems and components are easily accessed, from valve cover to oil filter to fuel filter. A single ECM and fewer electrical connections throughout mean less diagnostic and maintenance time. MaxxForce engines are backed by a dealer network with nearly 700 service locations across North America.

The 12.4-liter MaxxForce 13 is available now through Sutphen's 80 sales locations in the U.S. and Canada.
