Economic power

  • Individual four valve per cylinder heads give optimised gas flows, whilst digitally governed unit fuel injectors ensure ultra fine fuel atomisation and hence controlled rapid combustion, for efficiency and economy
  • Commonality of components with other engines in the 4000 Series family allows reduced parts stocking levels

Reliable power

  • Developed and tested using latest engineering techniques
  • Piston temperatures are controlled by an advanced gallery jet cooling system
  • All engines are tolerant of a wide range of temperatures without derate
  • Perkins global product support is designed to enhance the customer experience of owning a Perkins poweredmachine. We deliver this through the quality of our distribution network, extensive global coverage and a range of Perkins supported OEM partnership options. So whether you are an end-user or an equipment manufacturer our engine expertise is essential to your success
