Challenging boundaries: 6HK1 engine

Recently launched, the new 6HK1 engine series is one of Isuzu Engines’ pride and joy, and it’s easy to see why.

This six-cylinder H series stands out because of its focus on parts commonality in the design process, catering to the diverse needs of Australian applications.

Using the latest technology available, the 6HK1 engine has a highly efficient combustion chamber design, which results in lower fuel consumption.


Fuel-efficiency aside, the engine range is designed for application flexibility, with an adaptability that sees it suitable for a variety of requirements, ranging across uses in areas such as agriculture, general industry, hydraulic pumping, irrigation, refrigeration and water pumping.

And adding to all these is its ready-to-work functionality. Available as a Made to Stock (MTS) power unit, the 6HK1 (MTS II) comes complete with exhaust units, cooling systems, a control unit and other accessories—which means you can simply switch the engine on and put it straight to work. So what you’ll get is no build time and more working time.
