1. Greater flexibility for operators

Wherever you plan to use your equipment in the future, the New EDP is ready for it: cold start capability down to 14 °F / -10 °C (without preheating) and going up to 131 °F / 55 °C degrees ambient allows operation from harsh winter to scorching summer.

Thanks to the compact profile of the radiator and engine – due to the fact that it has no exhaust gas aftertreatment – the New EDP can be easily shipped in a 40ft open-top high-cube container without dismantling.

The rugged base frame designed for dragging, tailboarding, and crane lifts ensures easy system handling.
