Field of application 


The robust and easy to maintain engine was used in pump- and generator units for driving compressors, concrete mixers, mills, etc, but also as the motor in small loaders, forklifts and shunting locomotives.




The engine had great versatility through the various possibilities for PTO. The effect could be taken from the flywheel of the engine or at the opposite side from the crankshaft. Alternatively the power was taken from the camshaft by a free pin or hand- operated friction clutch. Engine Type 1052 I was designed for cooling tank and 1052 K was equipped with radiator and fan. Exhaust pipe, muffler, fuel tank and starting handle was included in the standard equipment. As an option, there were electric starter, alternator and starter battery. This cutaway engine has been used as demo unit at retailers and was donated 2015 by the Volvo Museum in Gothenburg.
