Less disruption with short engines

Perkins engines are designed to last for many years but if your engine does fail, it is quick and simple to obtain a replacement short engine that will minimise your downtime and get your equipment back up and running swiftly.

Our engines are designed to give you years of reliable service but occasionally they can go wrong. If you do suffer an engine seizure, it is reassuring to know that replacement short engines are available to be shipped to you at a moment’s notice and, depending on where you are in the world, often within just 24 hours. That will help to minimise the length of time your equipment is out of use.

The short engine you receive will come complete with the following vital parts:

  • Crankcase
  • Crankshaft
  • Con-Rods
  • Pistons/rings
  • Bearings
  • Rear end oil seals/housing
Short engines can be shipped quickly

Many customers prefer to use a short engine over piece parts. Using a short engine can increase machine uptime, lower labour hours as the core has been pre-built and provide build quality to Perkins production standards.

Once installed, the new engine will be covered by the standard warranty ensuring that you are covered for all costs associated with any subsequent breakdown or seizure of the short engine – and this also caters for any additional costs through related damage to parts of the engine.
