Make sure you check the data plate on the 230LCRD hydraulic excavator’s (HYEX) engine before ordering a new one.
There are two different Type II engines used on these vehicles:
- Model TO6068HT051 6-cylinder main engine, NSN 2815-01-483-5846
(Note: This engine is also used on the 230LCR Type I HYEX)
- Model TO4045TT050 4-cylinder air compressor engine, NSN 2815-01-483-5854
A few seconds reading the data plate can save lots of downtime from ordering the wrong engine.
