Yaroslavl Motor Plant launched serial production of YaMZ-6580 engines with a higher power output. These 8-cylinder V-type engines are built in Yaroslavl. The engine with a higher power output underwent 800-hour tests. The service life of the new engines is up to 1 million km.
Unlike YaMZ-6585 with 420 hp, the YaMZ-6580 engines with a higher power output feature a more effective and efficient piston cooling. The adjusted gear design delivers an increase in the oil pump productivity from 165 up to 175 l/min. to maintain smooth engine operation at a power increase. Upgraded turbocharger and engine ECU contribute into the increase in the engine power output at the same specific fuel flow.
These engines with higher power output are designed for agricultural vehicles with improved operating parameters and modern diesel gensets. These V-type YaMZ engines are reliable, have a high level of commonization among base and other versions, and are fit for various applications. The engines are highly serviceable, whereby spare parts are avilable in all regions of operation.
Leonid Dolgov, GAZ Group Export Director:
The engine resource of a million kilometers is a rare thing in the industry. Yaroslavl Engine Plant makes really strong and durable powertrains. YaMZ engines are designed for commercial vehicles, buses, long-haul vehicles, mining dump trucks, aircraft tow tractors, combine harvesters, timber trucks, excavators and other types of vehicles. We have launched the export process for the new engine already. It will soon be installed on tractors in Romania. The strong and powerful YaMZ-6580 is a perfect choice diesel gensets. We are already negotiating with foreign genset manufacturers.
