News from VM Motori: the R756 engine is now available in the EH version. This engine meets both Euro 6 Step E European Regulations requirements for on-road heavy duty vehicles and Stage V emissions for off-road applications. Compared to its Step C predecessor, the EH engine has higher power and torque values of 15% and 20% respectively.

This 4.5L, 6-cylinder inline engine is available with a power range of 115 to 132kW and a torque value of 600Nm at 1200 rpm. Combined with its low height and reduced levels of vibrations and noise, this makes it the perfect solution for applications requiring a compact, but powerful, engine. 

Development of this engine centred around the addition of a variable geometry turbocharger, new EGR system and the optimisation of the combustion system for the higher power output. 

The new VM Motori’s engine maintains the potential for customisation and is characterised by its separate DPF and SCR making it possible to adapt to all types of installation.
