Overview

The Perkins 403 range of electric power (EP) engines delivers the same compact benefits of its 2 cylinder stablemate, but takes a stride forward in terms of noise, refinement and power. The 3 cylinder range offers excellent power density and superb fuel economy and is designed to meet your power generation needs in both unregulated territories where extreme conditions are likely, and higher regulated territories with more stringent emissions standards.
