Compact Power Reimagined

The Perkins® Syncro 2.8 and 3.6 liter engines are not an evolution; they’re an innovation. Inspired thinking and a fresh, ground-up build produced engines that exceed expectations and set a new standard for compact engines. Both deliver unrivaled power with their modular, clean sheet design.

<h3>Designed to Deliver</h3>

Designed to Deliver

Perkins Syncro engines outperform operator requirements, giving customers the confidence to tackle the next big job with an engine that can more than keep up.

  • Flexibility to power more than 80 machine models
  • 30% Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) package reduction means the smallest engine systems on the market
  • Offers easier access for after-treatment + servicing
  • Meets strict emission standards, including U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage V
  • Intelligent turbocharging delivers more efficient fuel consumption over machine cycle
Put Through Its Paces

The new Perkins Syncro engines were built and tested for the most extreme conditions in order to ensure reliable performance. These engines have been subjected to more than 20,000 testbed validation hours to date, under the harshest of conditions — all before they were ever introduced to a customer. Perkins Syncro engines are field-proven reliable, powerful, easy to maintain and up for any challenge.

Sizable Savings

Smarter technology is only smart if it helps customers succeed in their businesses. We created the Perkins® Syncro 2.8 and 3.6 to drive productivity and savings on the job.

Global, modular platform.

The customizable core means the engines can be used at job sites worldwide. Because the core engine is common across all emission territories, the modular platform requires less training for installation technicians, who only have to learn the design once.


Common sense maintenance intervals.

Standard 500 hour service intervals between oil changes keep your engine at work. This reduces downtime lost to maintenance—and productivity translates to profitability.


Easier to service.

Shared/common hook-ups mean service techs save time, resulting in faster, less expensive maintenance. Additionally, Perkins Syncro 2.8 and 3.6 engines were designed for low parts and labor requirements and with optional location and hours monitoring.

Customer-Driven Design

Our customers spoke and we listened. Perkins Syncro achieves a new level of noise reduction — 3.5dB quieter than previous models. This saves money that would be spent on machine noise reduction features. Most importantly, quieter engines improve the operator environment and support health and safety.
