The 6-axle carrier is powered by a Mercedes-Benz OM 502 LA, an 8-cylinder diesel engine with a power of 405 kW (551 hp). This crane has the optional 12 x 8 x 12-drive line, where the axles 1, 4, 5 and 6 are powered and all axles are steerable.

The superstructure is powered by a Mercedes-Benz OM 926 LA, a 6-cylinder diesl engine with a power of 210 kW (286 hp). The diesel engine powers in total three hydraulic pumps, that can move all crane functions at the same time.
