Perkins Engines launches new turbo engine at ARA Show 2019

Perkins Engines is excited to launch its newest engine, the 403J-11T this February 17-20, 2019, at The Rental Show hosted by the American Rental Association (ARA). The new engine, showcasing in booth 6951, outputs 24 hp (18.4 kW) and 86 Nm (63.4 lb-ft) of torque and is particularly suited to power small construction equipment that is popular among North American rental fleets.

The 403J-11T is the latest addition to Perkins industry-leading global product range, joining three other 24-hp engines in the line-up that meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emission standards, and offers Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) the choice at this power node. “For this critical power of 24hp, OEMs need to balance multiple engine characteristics to get the best match for their machines,” says Oliver Lythgoe, marketing manager for small engines at Perkins. “The 403J-11T will be particularly suitable for machines that need good torque performance, but also need the smallest package possible. Many rental companies want to stock the same equipment across the whole of North America and these turbo engines are particularly good for maintaining performance even at high altitudes and across a wide range of temperatures.”

Drawing on more than 85 years of diesel engine experience, the 403J-11T engine is just the latest release in major investments by Perkins in small engines. The range is being transformed to include new model introductions, upgrades for the latest world emissions standards, and upgrades in power and torque.

However, investments extend beyond new products like the Perkins® 403J-11T. Other areas of investment include the creation of new manufacturing lines and implementing cutting-edge automation technologies. “Our OEM and rental customers appreciate our unique ability to collaborate with them based on their needs, as well as provide them with reliable, quality products,” Perkins manager of global rental operations, Andy Zuckerman, explains.
