For 85 years Perkins has led the field in the design and manufacture of high-performance gas and diesel engine. Our continuous development programme allows us to offer one of the most advanced and comprehensive ranges of purpose-built diesel and gas engines available today.
More than 5,000 different applications are powered by Perkins engines. We help customers build roads and homes and we provide engines for both standby and prime electricity generation. Our industrial engines are powering the most complex of applications.
Globally, there are increasingly stringent standards on emissions – and the technology we use ensures our products meet the standards wherever the engines are being used in the world.
Engine performance comes down to controlling engine speed: reaching operating speed, maintaining speed under load and responding to operator demands. Explore these elements and learn about cold starts, speed controls, torque backup, and more.
