Perkins places great importance on the ever-expanding global rental market. We understand the commercial needs of rental businesses. Perkins provides the power, service and solutions rental companies need.
“Rental remains one of the most important markets for Perkins,” said Andy Zuckerman, Perkins global rental manager. “Every time you visit a construction industrial site up to 50 percent of the equipment you see there will be rented.”
Perkins has a power solution for every rental application in its leading line-up of off-highway engines, ranging from 4-2000 kW (5-2800 hp). We power more than 5,000 machine applications, from welders, aerial work platforms, air compressors, generators, light towers, dewatering pumps, earthmoving equipment and more.
“Alongside our advances in technology, our experience gives us a deep insight into the requirements of rental companies,” said Andy. “We understand the commercial needs of rental businesses – the critical importance of uptime, productivity and return on investment (ROI). We’re focused on meeting these needs with reliable engines and support.”
Diesel engines become more complex with the aftertreatment technology to meet EU Stage V and U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emission standards. Equipment costs tend to reflect this growing complexity, but rental companies still need to maximise their ROI.
Perkins engines are designed to deliver class-leading power, economy and reliability, resulting in the lowest cost of ownership throughout the engine’s service life. What’s more, we understand the commercial needs of rental businesses and give you power, service and solutions in exactly the way you want them.
“Complex aftertreatment systems change the way we rent service equipment,” said Andy. “They have created challenges in yielding the expected financial returns with diesel powered rental fleets. To meet these challenges, we have developed meaningful support for rental fleets –support that helps with increased uptime, improved fleet maintenance and ROI.”
You are never alone when you work with Perkins. Class-leading engines, a strong and growing focus on the rental market, a comprehensive Rental Support Programme, a skilled distributor network and highly-responsive parts and service resources are always there to support you.

“The engine is the heart of the machine. That relationship will contribute to the utilisation of the asset and help maintain a positive customer experience.” – Andy Zuckerman, Perkins global rental manager.
