Yanmar’s Model 3TNM68 Minimax 784-cc three-cylinder Tier IV-compliant diesel engine uses indirect-injection technology and an MC-type injection pump to reduce fuel consumption and emissions on lawn and garden equipment, small agricultural and utility vehicles, and generators. The compact engine block with a ladder frame structure in its casting reduces noise and vibration, according to the company, while the cylinder block design achieves higher output levels of 18.9 hp (14 kW) relative to the engine’s 73 kg (161 lb) mass. Minimax series diesel engine solutions are suitable for tight-space applications, and a universal base attachment permits them to act as a replacement for a variety of equipment.
