Rugged Durability and High Performance in Demanding Applications
The GEN2 C40-55s is designed to tackle any task placed in its path. The open-core, plate-fin radiator provides maximum cooling of the engine, transmission and axle in the harshest environments and the most demanding applications.
Engineered for extreme environments, the C40-55s is equipped with a two-stage air filter system that removes 98% of incoming dust and debris before it enters the filter media.
Nested upright rails provide positive rail interlock and a narrow profile to maximize the vision window. The overhead guard safety bars run parallel to the operator’s line of sight resulting in a clear, unobstructed view.
Maximum Visibility + Minimum Fatigue =
Ultimate Safety & Maximum productivity
C40-55s STANDARD FEATURES & BENEFITS
Simple & Error Proof
- Hand operated lever actuates brake.
- Transmission disengages when parking brake is set preventing driving against park brake.
WET DISC BRAKES ON ALL C40-55s MODELS
Enclosed & Oil Cooled

THE POWER BEHIND THE PUNCH
Field-Proven 4.3 L V-6 GM LPG Engine
- Provides smooth, quiet operation.
- Optional LPG tier 4 version complete with 3 way muffler.
3.6L Deutz Diesel Engine (55,4 kW) - meets all EU exhaust gas emission ( Stage IIIB)
- Low maintenance. A Complete new developed engine with high peak torque. With the installed DVERT®Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) there is no machine downtime. The exhaust after treatment is done during the operation. Alternative DPF Systems with DPF ( Diesel-Particle-Filter) require a regeneration process, which means truck downtime during the operation.
- Protects your investment in the event of low engine oil pressure, excessive engine coolant or high transmission oil temperatures.
- Engines meet reduced emission and smoke levels.
EASE OF MAINTENANCE
