Diesel Engines: Mitsubishi S6R2 vs Cummins QSK19 vs Caterpillar C-18

Mitsubishi S6R2-Y3MPTAW engine

Many wonder about Caterpillar vs Cummins, but what about Mitsubishi? The Mitsubishi S6R2-Y3MPTAW engine provides larger displacement rates, low compression ratios, and minimal stress on the equipment than other comparable engines. Laborde Products offers this model as one of many Tier 3 Mitsubishi engines for your marine propulsion needs. Learn how it matches up against other competitors!

The Mitsubishi S6R2-Y3MPTAW: Simple, But Powerful

This EPA Tier 3 certified marine diesel engine is a top-of-the-line model for robust control. The Mitsubishi S6R2-Y3MPTAW is equipped to power large-scale, hard-working boats with a highly durable design. This fully mechanical engine offers an output of 803 horsepower at 1400 revolutions per minute (RPMs). The S6R2-YMPTAW weighs 6,527 pounds and has a displacement of 29.96 liters. This equates to diminished engine strain and an overall longer lifespan of your machinery.

How Does It Compare To Other Engines On the Market?

When stacked up against other 800 horsepower engines like the Cummins QSK-19 and the Caterpillar C-18, the Mitsubishi S6R2-Y3MPTAW shines for its ability to work harder with less strain. Caterpillar and Cummins operate at higher RPMs (2100 and 1800) compared to the S6R2-Y3MPTAW (1400). It also has 30 liters of displacement compared to both the 19 and 18 liters of the Cummins and Caterpillar engines.

Lighter weight engines with smaller displacement, like the Caterpillar and Cummins models, undergo higher levels of stress and strain. Its horsepower per liter is just over half that of the Caterpillar and Cummins. Ultimately, this results in less maintenance and extended life of your equipment. Mitsubishi, unlike its competitors, it’s a mechanical engine. This means that any necessary repairs can be done in-house by your team, not a computer technician for faster, simpler upkeep.
