Perkins places great importance on the growing global rental market. We invest huge effort and resources in giving you the service and solutions to be successful.

Rental remains one of the key markets for Perkins as the volume of electric power equipment that goes into rental channels continues to rise.

Perkins has a power solution from 5 to 2,500 kVA for every rental application in the electric power space. All are carefully engineered to offer maximum power density, minimum space claim and proven reliability.

According to new product introduction manager, James Gardiner, Perkins solutions support the commercial needs of rental businesses, across uptime, productivity and return on investment (ROI).

“Our capability in the rental space is demonstrated by the efficiency, reliability and simplicity of our engines,” he said. “They’re designed to deliver class-leading power, economy and dependability, resulting in the lowest cost of ownership.

“Across our range, a consistency of simplicity brings benefits for rental customers. Our aftertreatment technologies offer extremely long service intervals and are often fit for life. Because we’ve been refining these technologies for a decade, customers can have full confidence that the availability of the generators our engines power will be maximised.”

Perkins technologies take the strain off rental companies in other important ways.

“With common service points and parts across our engine range, rental companies can simplify their service model, in terms of parts stocking and reducing the number of technicians they need to train,” added James. “Our principal of common cores also enables original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) operating in the rental space to easily iterate a product and make it applicable to a range of global markets.”

The consistency of Perkins global service network, its comprehensive Rental Support Programme and unique, collaborative partnership approach all help rental customers maximise uptime, achieve fastest ROI and enhance their profitability.
