Perkins Pacific Launches Three New Replacement Engines | Construction News


Perkins Pacific, a master distributor of Perkins engines and leading supplier of off-highway OEMs in the Western U.S., has launched three new Perkins Industrial Open Power Unit (IOPU) 1100 Series replacement engines.

Available for the first time in years, the EPA-rated Tier 3 engines offer small and mid-sized off-highway equipment a new-engine repowering alternative other than Tier 4 Final engines.

The Perkins IOPU engines offer significant cost savings over other repowering options and are sized to be ideal for equipment repowering. They can replace most engine brands at Tier 3 or below emission levels, making them a more environmentally-friendly option. Each is engineered with Perkins' well-known expertise and is available in multiple configurations to match the needs of individual OEMs and operators.

Material-handling, agricultural, and construction equipment will benefit from the 1100 Series’ lower operating costs and reduced noise. The IOPU’s easy-to-install configuration cuts equipment downtime for integration so repowered equipment can get back to work rapidly. The design of the engines frequently allows them to replace older engines without additional engineering costs.

The national IOPU program is being led by Perkins Pacific and the new engines are available from Perkins distributors and dealers throughout the U.S. Each is built on Perkins’ new high tech production line and comes with a complete fuel system, air cleaner, and radiator fitted as standard, along with a mechanical or electronic control system.

“This new engine offering is very timely and fulfills a drop-in repowering need by customers for compact engines used in off-highway applications,” said Leighton Morgan, Perkins 1100 Series marketing manager.

The new IOPU models are:

1104D-E44TA: 96.5 kW/129.4 hp, with the latest common-rail fuel system

1104D-44TA: 83.0 kW/111.3 hp with an advanced diesel mechanical fuel system

1104D-44T: 74.5 Kw/99.9 hp, with an advanced diesel mechanical fuel system
