LEAF locomotives maximise tractive effort while minimising emissions and fuel costs with their modern, efficient designs. These locomotives offer an 84-92% reduction in NOx emissions and reduced particulate matter. They also use a Cummins engine that meets EPA Tier III emissions standards with Tier IV available.
LEAF locomotives offer benefits such as zero stack embers – eliminating ground fire concerns, up to 10% lower decibel output than other locomotives and 98.5% uptime with many of their range.
All LEAF locomotives are simple to operate with one button push start, conventional cab controls for a single genset (duel genset available) and readily available parts. They also have a programmable automatic shutdown after a pre-set time limit.
Extremely efficient, LEAF locomotives use 45-65% less fuel than conventional locomotives, have no wet-stacking and use 90% less oil. They meet all FRA requirements, have an onboard computer to deliver real-time performance reporting and a traction control system to minimise wheel slipping.
