Since 1932 more than 21 million Perkins engines have been chosen to power over 5,000 different machines, from tractors to telehandlers and combine harvesters to sprayers. Today, our commitment to the agricultural industry remains as strong as ever, with Perkins showcasing its latest agricultural engines at Belagro 2019 in Minsk, Belarus from June 4 - 9, 2019.
Committed to collaboration and engine integration, Perkins has more than 85 years of dedicated experience working alongside agricultural equipment manufacturers in the design, build and servicing of off-highway diesel engines to deliver dependable power solutions.
Machine builders and farmers worldwide trust Perkins to power their machines. This reputation for reliability is built on a history of engineering excellence and innovative products and services that have continually exceeded customers’ expectations.
“Today, the Perkins brand stands for better productivity through robust reliability, improved uptime and economical performance” Andy Curtis, agricultural strategy and global Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) sales director said. “Over many years of working with closely with agricultural businesses around the world, we’ve developed a deep understanding of the requirements of the market.”
He continued: “We understand what end users want from their machine and that, ultimately, they need their machine to make them money. By understanding their needs, we’re able to design reliability and efficiency – the way our customers want it – into every product.”
From 0.5 litre to 18 litre, Perkins engines deliver 8.2 to 597 kW of powerful performance, offering a comprehensive range of engines for use in agricultural applications, whatever the emission standard.
“Perkins is committed to agriculture for the long term” Andy said. “And while we may be more commonly known for powering tractors, we have solutions for every piece of agricultural equipment, from combines and sprayers, and telehandlers to compact loaders, whatever the emission standards.
“Our newest products clearly demonstrate our ongoing commitment to this sector. Our Perkins® Syncro 3.6 litre agricultural platform was designed and developed with agricultural equipment manufacturers and end users in mind.”
Perkins will be showcasing a range of engines from its portfolio at Belagro 2019:
“Perkins has been supporting the ambitions of Belarus’ leading OEMs for nearly three years,” said Dave Robinson, Perkins business development manager. “Since entering the market we’ve made impressive progress, with nearly 40 projects across a range of leading manufacturers.
“Many OEMs are looking west and seeing opportunities to sell into Europe. By choosing Perkins, a trusted and proven global brand, OEMs add credibility to their machines. We can also give them the emissions compliant products to support their export requirements, which aren’t available domestically.”
Dave continued: “We’re in the business of making our customers more successful. We want to reach as many OEMs as we can, open new doors with them and help them become even more successful.”
Visitors to Belagro will learn about the support Perkins offers through all stages of an engine’s life, from servicing to repair and overhaul. Experts will be on hand to explain the benefits of using Perkins genuine parts and the availability of parts across engine series and ages. The benefits of a Perkins® Platinum Protection extended warranty plan will also be promoted.
Success in any country depends on having a strong partner on the ground. That’s why Perkins distributor Hited has recruited established dealer PMI to take responsibility for all Perkins product support in Belarus. The company has intimate knowledge of the agricultural market in Belarus, understands the needs of local OEMs and has well-established relationships with leading manufacturers.
Representatives from PMI will be on the stand at Belagro.
