    Note (1)
    Net power ratings are tested at the reference conditions for the specified standard.
    Note (2)
    Net power shown is the power available at the flywheel when the engine is equipped with alternator, air cleaner, diesel exhaust filter, and fan at minimum speed.
    Note (3)
    No derating required up to 3000 m (10,000 ft) altitude. Auto derate protects hydraulic and transmission systems.
    Note (4)
    Flywheel per the SAE reference conditions with the fan at maximum speed.
    Note (5)
    The Cat C3.3B Tier 4 Final/Stage V uses an active regeneration system which requires no operator interaction under normal conditions.
