Another Big Small Step For Cummins
Cummins Inc. announced that it will take another big step in small engines at the upcoming Bauma show in Munich, where it will unveil a new 3.8 L diesel. The new QSF3.8 engine will cover a power range of 85 to 132 hp (63 to 98 kW) and is designed to meet EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage 4 near-zero emissions standards, the company said.
The all-new four-cylinder, 3.8 L engine will incorporate full-authority electronic controls, a high pressure common rail fuel system, cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology from Cummins Emission Solutions. As a result, the engine will not require a diesel particulate filter (DPF), Cummins said.
The new clean-sheet design QSF3.8 diesel is the next step in Cummins’ small diesel development. Last year at the Intermat show in Paris, Cummins introduced the QSF2.8L diesel available in ratings of 49 to 74 hp. Like its smaller sibling, the new QSF3.8 will target a broad range of compact construction and materials handling equipment.
