Perkins Launches New Small Turbo Diesel Engine

By Mike Osenga18 February 2019

With an eye on powering smaller construction equipment, especially those machines used in North American rental fleets, Perkins Engines is adding a 1.1 L, three-cylinder turbo diesel, the model the 403J-11T, to its portfolio.

Introduced at the Rental Show hosted by the American Rental Association (ARA), February 17-20, 2019,. The new engine has outputs 24 hp (18.4 kW) and 86 Nm (63.4 lb-ft) of torque. The 403J-11T is the latest addition to Perkins global product range, joining three other 24 hp engines in the line-up that meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 final emission standards.

“For this critical power of 24 hp, OEMs need to balance multiple engine characteristics to get the best match for their machines,” says Oliver Lythgoe, marketing manager for small engines at Perkins. “The 403J-11T will be particularly suitable for machines that need good torque performance, but also need the smallest package possible. Many rental companies want to stock the same equipment across the whole of North America and these turbo engines are particularly good for maintaining performance even at high altitudes and across a wide range of temperatures.”

 More details on the 403J-11T to follow.
