The Euro V and Euro VI Cursor Engines
The Euro V engine is a 5.9L, six-cylinder in a class-leading low-load chassis with an industry-leading turning cycle. Its car-like cab makes for outstanding driver comfort and safety on the road. An Iveco Eurocargo’s fuel efficiency is unmatched in the sector. It’s the perfect medium-duty engine for urban applications as well as emergency service work and public utility duties.
The Euro VI engine features a common rail, high pressure, electronic injection system with, turbocharger and intercooler. Low-viscosity engine oil in the Euro VI engine improves efficiency and an electronic two-speed electromagnetic fan clutch engages or disengages automatically to maintain optimum engine temperature.
Both Euro V and Euro VI Cursor engines allow oil change intervals up to 80,000km in optimum conditions, reducing downtime and lowering running costs.
The 4x2 Euro V ML160 is a smaller sized truck with a shortened wheelbase of around 4m and up to 5-tonne payload. It is perfect for urban waste pick-up due to its maneuverability and new dual controls which allow for optimum driver safety and efficiency. Eurocargo ML160 is ideal for work in gated communities as many of these have gross vehicle mass limits. It is the perfect balance between efficiency and maneuverability.
The dual control system of the Eurocargo ML160 is designed to be compatible with several leading side-loader and compactor bodies. It already has smaller dimensions than most of its competitors and the shortened wheelbase means you can easily access tight spaces while fully loaded.
Driver access on the ML160 is enhanced by heavy-duty hinges that allow a door opening radius of 110 degrees. Sturdy side steps with non-slip surfaces provide excellent support and safety for drivers who are frequently in and out of the cab.
