Perkins Engines Provide Compact, Quiet Power Solutions

Designed and developed with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and end users in mind, the Perkins 4-cylinder offering had to be compact, powerful and quiet. Engineered to integrate perfectly into more than 80 different machine models, the 2.8- and 3.6-liter engines continue to deliver the performance, value and reliability customers expect to help them access new opportunities and support their business growth. 

“We’ve always had high expectations for the 2.8- and 3.6-liter engines, and they’ve met our expectations and more,” said Matt Coleman, product manager for the range. “Our global customer base quickly appreciated how the 2.8- and 3.6-liter models could add real value to the productivity and performance of their machines. Now, over 100,000 of these versatile engines, which meet global emissions standards including EU Stage V and U.S EPA Tier 4 Final and more recently China Nonroad Stage IV, can be found powering applications in the agricultural, industrial, material handling and construction sectors.”

Compact, powerful and quiet

The 2.8- and 3.6-liter engines have proved to be a ‘game-changer’ for many customers, thanks to their high-power density and torque, giving OEMs the opportunity to move to smaller, more compact engines. Manufactured in both Peterborough, UK and Wuxi, China, the 2.8- and 3.6-liter engines provide customers with the great fuel consumption, fast response and electronic integration they need to differentiate their machines, which is achieved through an increase in power density of up to 22 percent when downsizing. 

While the compact nature of the engine and aftertreatment system package enables the 2.8- and 3.6-liter models to fit in a wide variety of machines. Up to an 8 percent improvement in fuel economy during machine use, with the 3.6 liter delivering powers up to 100 kW (134 hp) with up to 550 Nm of torque, has also been well received.

Since 2019, the range has been expanded, with production on the China Nonroad Stage IV offering starting in January 2023 and the introduction of the 2.8- and 3.6-liter industrial open power units for the agricultural and industrial sectors in November 2022.

“We are always searching for better ways of helping customers achieve their goals, to enable their continued success,” said Jaz Gill, vice president global sales, marketing, service and parts. “The addition of the 2.8- and 3.6-liter engines to our range of sustainable power solutions truly embodied that sentiment. So today, whether our engines are powering a dumper, heavy articulated tandem roller, pumping equipment, tractor, skid steer loader, excavator, telehandler or backhoe loader; by working together with our customers, we have created better power solutions for all.”

Ease of maintenance and ownership considerations 

Customers and end users have also highlighted the ease of maintenance of their engines such as single side servicing to simplify regular maintenance, the use of hydraulic lash adjusters, long life belts and fit for life aftertreatment. To ensure duty cycles and workload are not affected and user productivity is maintained, the 2.8- and 3.6-liter uses a DPF regeneration process that is invisible to the operator, ensuring maximum uptime.
