Work is carried out by the little orange helpers in cities and municipalities every day, sometimes under harsh conditions. They clean our pedestrian zones, sweep streets and pavements and clear snow. The working conditions require a particularly sophisticated design: they should not be affected by dirt, dust, rain, cold or salt.
The little powerhouses by Ladog are full of the latest technology. The innovative H-series four-cylinder diesel engine by Hatz provides the power and the necessary torque.
In 2015, Ladog developed a new municipal vehicle for universal use in accordance with the latest emissions regulations. High torque, low weight, small dimensions and additional power take-off are crucial to the engine selection for the new Ladog T1250. Ladog chose the Hatz 4H50TIC for a good reason. With only a two-litre cubic capacity, the engine delivers over 55 kilowatts of power thanks to the latest turbocharger technology in combination with the Bosch off-highway common-rail injection system. The engine provides a torque of 240 newton metres over a wide engine speed range of 1,600 to 2,100 revolutions per minute – plenty of power for the hydraulic drive system.
The small dimensions and the low weight offer advantages: The engine can be installed centrally and deep within the vehicle chassis. This saves space and also keeps the centre of gravity low. The power is equally important. Whatever the tool, such as a snow plough, sweeper or pressure washer, the Hatz four-cylinder engine has enough reserves to master all imaginable tasks in the urban and industrial environment. In addition, it is clean and quiet, which especially pleases pedestrians and residents.
