Wednesday September 18, 2019

Continued investment in its distribution network, online parts shops and connected assets has seen Perkins deliver a range of service and support solutions which are benefiting farmers and the wider agricultural sector.

As part of its ongoing commitment to this market, Perkins is, for the first time, exhibiting at the Irish Ploughing Championships in Fenagh, Co Carlow, Ireland from September 17-19, 2019.

Located at Stand 248, Row 12, Block 2, the experienced Perkins team will be joined by service and support technicians from DiPerk Power Solutions – its recently appointed distributor for Ireland.

My Engine App

DiPerk Power Solutions has been a distributor of Perkins products across Great Britain since 2004 and specialises in the supply, service and support of the complete range of Perkins product used in a variety of markets and applications. DiPerk Power Solutions is now working with existing providers to deliver sales, parts, service and support to Perkins customers in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

As well as promoting DiPerk’s extensive service and support capabilities, Perkins is also making farmers aware of the benefits of using genuine parts on their equipment. Using genuine parts on an engine is the best way of keeping it running, long into the future. Perkins parts are precision engineered to fit the engine, are rigorously tested for quality and come with a 12-month warranty.

To ensure customers have quick and easy access to the most frequently ordered parts, Perkins recently opened an online parts shop in Ireland --

Parts are supplied from the UK based Perkins Global Distribution Centre which stocks more than 30,000 Perkins genuine parts. By leveraging our global logistics centre capabilities, parts are available for immediate despatch to our customers in Ireland. The online parts shop also allows customers to live chat with trained Perkins staff who are available to support their online needs and provides free shipping on orders over €125. 

Perkins will also be promoting the free Perkins® My Engine App which provides truly useful engine information including:

  • Engine running hours
  • Service reminders and service log
  • Parts book and consumables information
  • Location
  • Service, maintenance and workshop manuals for UN ECE R96 Stage IIIA or below engines*
  • Quick links to buy parts in Ireland

The app is enhanced further when coupled with the award-winning Perkins® SmartCap for real time engine hours and location data.

Making its Irish debut, the Perkins SmartCap is the world’s first low cost engine level telematics device, which importantly works on both mechanical and electronic engines and is sure to be of interest to farmers.

The Perkins SmartCap is a replacement oil filler cap which monitors your engine and sends data direct to the Perkins My Engine App on your smartphone.

“For over 85 years Perkins has provided world-leading agricultural engines, so we understand the challenges that farmers face, and are committed to providing the power, service and solutions to help them succeed,” said Siobhan Scott, marketing manager.

“The Irish Ploughing Championships will enable us to speak to hundreds of people who rely on Perkins-powered equipment every day of their lives. We believe our range of service, online and engine-level telematics solutions make us the ideal choice for the agricultural sector.”
