WINDHOFF locomotives use modern, name brand Diesel engines. These engines feature efficient fuel injection technology and optional automatically regenerating filter elements. Thus, emission is reduced to a minimum in compliance with pertinent and coming directives for environmental protection.
The locomotives come with wheel-spin and wheel-skid protection systems to ensure optimum traction during acceleration and positive braking action – always optimised for the prevailing condition of the rail face. These locomotives are very flexible as they can be operated singly or coupled in multi-traction mode with twice the towing power.
