Providing the power for the Mahindra is a Korean built Daedong four-cylinder, 2.4-litre diesel engine, which is rated at 49hp.

Interestingly, while this engine meets Tier Three emissions standards, there is some speculation on whether this model will see an upgrade to Tier Four in the future. While it’s a relatively compact engine, access is still good and the service points are all easily found. The radiator at the front is also easily cleaned with removable mesh screens.

A decent sized 60-litre fuel tank fitted under the cab will keep the machine on the move for many hours between fills. Service intervals are relatively short though, with engine oil required every 100 hours and transmission every 500 hours.

In operation the engine was perky and responsive. It never seemed to struggle when digging into a pile of gravel, although it would have been interesting to see its performance on a PTO implement.
