Does cat use Cummins engines?
Accordingly, does cat make Cummins?
Caterpillar owns Cummins, but Cummins has effectively "eaten" Caterpillar. In Brazil. Here, they're separate, of course, but it's only the purposes of adhering to American commercial law.
Likewise, which Cummins Engine is the best? HARD FACTS
|5.9L Cummins Specs||6.7L Cummins Specs|
|BORE||4.02 inches||4.21 inches|
|STROKE||4.72 inches||4.88 inches|
Similarly, does cat make their own engines?
CAT builds their own engines right up to about 10,000hp (3618 - a 20+ foot long, 18-cylinder, marine V-engine).
Are Cat engines good?
In terms of failure, the 3406E is actually pretty good, especially compared to some other Caterpillar engines. However, like all engines, they still had their issues. In the 3406Es with a 5EK engine serial number, there was a pretty bad and widespread crankshaft breakage problem.
