I have been putting together WorkBoat’s diesel engine Power Guide — Diesel Directory (DD) — since 1998. This year’s listing contains engines from 18 major engine manufacturers:
- Daihatsu Diesel MFG. Co. LTD.
- John Deere Power Systems
- Fiat Diesel Engines North America
- FNM Marine Diesel Engines
- FPT North America
- GE Transportation (Wabtec Corp.)
- Man Engines & Components Inc.
- Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine America Inc.
- Moteurs Baudouin
- Steyr Motors GMBH
- Volvo Penta
- Westerbeke Corp.
- Yanmar Marine
The majority of the information comes directly from the engine manufacturers, and some from engine company websites. It’s a true, no frills listing of each company’s engines and includes information such as Gear, Bore x Stroke, Dimensions (L-W-H), weight, and Horsepower and RPMs (high output, medium duty, continuous duty). Also included are the contact information and addresses of the engine companies.
Granted a lot of this information can be found online — that's if you want to take the time to individually visit each website. But we’ve done the research for you. Look for WorkBoat’s Power Guide/Diesel Directory in the July issue of the magazine.
