Perkins Expands My Engine App
By Mike Osenga25 September 2019
The free Perkins My Engine App, which has already had more than 140,000 downloads, is now providing end users with access to engine service, maintenance and workshop manuals for UN ECE R96 Stage 3a or below engines.
Service, maintenance and workshop manuals are a critical tool used when servicing and maintaining an engine and include information on disassembly and assembly, electrical system, systems operation, test and adjust, specifications, a troubleshooting guide, and operation and maintenance.
“Up to now, manuals have always been available in paper format, but as changes are frequently made, it can be difficult for us to ensure end users always have the latest information when they require it,” said Matt O’Sullivan, general manager – aftermarket.
He continued: “Now Perkins is providing live access to manuals for Stage 3a or below engines through the Perkins My Engine App — a process which will bring many benefits to millions of Perkins end users around the world.”
The free Perkins My Engine App is available for download, after which a user account needs to be created followed by registration of the Perkins engine/s. To access the manuals, end users must sign up to marketing permissions. If marketing permissions are not set, the manuals will not be visible. If a user unsubscribes from marketing permissions, the manuals will be locked for 30 days.
To ensure users always access the latest version, manuals for Stage 3a or below engines are available in ‘view only’ mode and cannot be downloaded. Manuals are currently only available in English.
Customers looking to access electronic manuals for higher Stage/Tier engines can contact a local Perkins distributor via www.perkins.com/distributor to order a paper copy.
