Perkins launches new Syncro family of engines
By Joe Malone14 April 2016
Among many new launches, from many manufactures at Bauma, engine manufacturer Perkins has launched a new family of 4 cylinder, 2.8 and 3.6 litre diesel engines.
The new Syncro range delivers between 45 and 100kW, and meets multiple global emissions standards including EU Stage V and US Tier 4 Final.
The company said the new 2.8 and 3.6 litre engines deliver the performance, value and reliability its customers expect, to help them access new markets and support their business growth.
It also said that the high power and torque density will give Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) the opportunity to move to smaller, more compact engines.
The 3.6 litre engine has an improved fuel economy of 8%, and powers up to 100kW, while the 2.8 litre engine delivers a maximum of 55kW.
Allister Dennis, product manager, said, “The recent advances in fuel systems, control systems, predictive engineering and aftertreatment ensures our new 2.8 and 3.6 litre engines are the right solution for off-highway machines like wheeled loaders, tractors, telehandlers and excavators.
“We’ve now started work on this family of engines to give us and our customers plenty of development and field validation time before Stage V introduction.”
