A Letter to Technicians

The Series 60 engine is entering its 14th year!

Since its introduction in 1987, over 729,000 Series 60 engines have been introduced in the market. The technological changes that have occurred during those 14 years have resulted in a different type of engine, requiring a different class of technicians. Today’s technician is required to have computer skills, excellent comprehension of the written word and possess an extensive diagnostic understanding of the various technological systems and components. Today’s technician must perform at a higher level of efficiency and competency than their predecessors and at the same
time furnish professional quality support.

As the leader in engine computer systems and technology, Detroit Diesel Corporation remains focused on providing excellence in products, service support and training.
