Installation

The Cat C15 offers a fully-configurable engine across a wide range of power nodes, flexible aftertreatment mounting options and the ability to install the engine's IPU straight from the factory, so OEMs can keep installation time and costs to a minimum.

Advanced Features

With transparent regeneration technology built into every Cat C15, operators can continue to be productive without ever having to wait. The C15 also features a 5,000-hour DPF service interval and DEF capacity of 93.7 liters, giving machine operators the opportunity to spend more time on the job site and less time in the shop.

Ideal Applications

Industrial, agricultural and construction applications such as: Compressors • Trenchers • Chippers • Grinders • Irrigation equipment • Bore rigs • Drill rigs • Pumps • Hydraulic power units

Total Cost of Ownership

Operators know the true costs of owning an engine goes beyond the rough and reliable exterior. That's why the Cat C15 was developed to optimize fluid consumption based on a wide range of operating cycles and applications. And with 500-hour maintenance intervals, owners can keep parts and service costs low.

Cat Dealer Product Support

Say goodbye to complicated service routines and start enjoying scheduled maintenance and worldwide dealer support with the Cat C15. Not only does the engine come with a warranty, it’s also backed by the Cat dealer support network across 192 countries. See your Cat dealer for details.

Safety
