A Ventral with an AERA-Vator attachment is operated on a baseball diamond.

The letters that our manufacturing partners use on their products play a critical role in efficiently communicating the variations within their product lines. Take the Ventrac 4520 for example.

Since Ventrac has launched their 4520 they’ve released multiple variations of it in regards to engines and specs. 

In this article we will explore the differences between the K,P,Y,Z, and N.

What is Ducted Fuel Injection:

Ducted Fuel Injection is a technique where fuel is injected through a small tube into the combustion chamber. This process limits the amount of soot production in comparison to conventional diesel combustion generating less emissions.

What is Electronic Fuel Injection:

Similar to DFI, Electronic Fuel Injection is a process aimed at reducing emissions. However, the methodology is different. EFI uses electronic signals to inject fuel directly into the engine’s manifold or cylinder. This process has also seen improvements in fuel efficiency and lower maintenance.
