A lifetime of low cost

We have designed the Perkins 1204 range with optimised fuel consumption in mind, matching it to the operating cycles of a wide range of equipment and applications.

Low cost maintenance is achieved through hydraulic tappets, multi-vee belts, service free aftertreatment and 500 hour oil change intervals.

In addition, on the 1204F industrial engine, many service items can be located on either side of the engine to give you maximum access for servicing.

Easy to switch

The 1204 range features core technologies to support your move from Stage IIIB/Tier 4 Interim to Stage IV/Tier 4 Final. Following the introduction of the latest emission standards for engines below 130 kW (175 hp), in October 2014 in the EU and in January 2015 in the U.S., our technology consistently delivers with the minimum amount of difficulty.

Like you, we believe there is no need for a trade-off between meeting emission standards and delivering on performance. The 1200 Series tackles the emissions challenge head-on and gives you improved productivity levels and fuel consumption compared to the previous generation Stage IIIB/Tier 4 Interim engines.

Ideal for downsizing

High power density, combined with excellent torque in the 1204 range allows you to select a more compact engine where previously you might have used an engine of a higher cubic capacity. This downsizing has several benefits, including saving you money and providing more space to package aftertreatment units.

Tailored for your machines

Your needs are our top priority, which is why we provide more tailored technology for OEMs than anyone else. Working closely with OEMs, we have developed the 1204 range with hundreds of variables so that it easily fits into your machine.

Our 1204 range engines come with two year warranties as standard and can also be supported by extended service contracts.
