Perkins Unveils Tier 4 Final Engines for Rental Equipment | Construction News

Perkins exhibited a range of engines designed to meet the needs of rental-industry applications at the American Rental Association’s Rental Show in Atlanta from February 22–24, 2016.

The new 404F-E22TA, the 854F-E34T, and a 1204F-E44TA all feature advanced technologies that meet Tier 4 Final emission standards while providing outstanding operating economy and simplified maintenance procedures to support profitable rental operations.

“These engines are the result of close collaboration with our rental industry and OEM customers,” said Corey Berry, rental account manager. “They meet the emission standards without sacrificing either performance or productivity while minimizing maintenance requirements to ensure maximum utilization rates for rental equipment.

“Our presence at The Rental Show,” Berry said, “demonstrates to the industry just how serious we are about this important growing market. Today more than ever we have something unique and valuable to offer rental industry customers, and there is no better place to start the ball rolling than the ARA Rental Show.”

A recently re-organized North American distribution network is also part of Perkins’ rental industry focus along with enhanced and updated maintenance and service training programs, Berry said. Seven distributors (three in the U.S., three in Canada and one in Mexico) will coordinate hundreds of local dealers to deliver parts, maintenance and service support for rental industry customers throughout North America.

The Perkins engines displayed at The Rental Show are an integral part of Perkins’ industry focus, selected for their special suitability for rental machinery applications.

Here are the models:

404F-E22TA: Built in Perkins’ plant in Griffin, Ga., this engine is based on a proven design that has successfully completed more than 30,000 field hours of service, equivalent to 1.5 million miles in a highway application. It is a four-cylinder turbocharged and aftercooled, electronically controlled, common rail, direct injection, engine that produces 67 hp. The engine uses a simple service-free Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC), making it ideal for compact equipment applications. Also standard is Perkins single-side servicing layout and a 500-hour service schedule.

854F-E34T: A popular choice in the 84- to 120-hp range, the 854F-E34TA is a compact, four-cylinder, 3.4-liter, turbocharged and aftercooled engine using a single-stage turbo with a smart wastegate. A four-valve cylinder head and 1,800-bar (26,107-psi) common rail fuel pressure improve combustion efficiency to let the engine to meet Tier 4 Final emission standards without a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). Optimized Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is packaged separately from the DOC, enabling the SCR module to be mounted in either a horizontal or vertical position to give OEMs greater installation flexibility.

1204F-E44TA: Delivering 141 to 173 hp for medium and large equipment, this compact four-cylinder, 4.4-liter turbocharged and aftercooled engine eliminates the need for a DPF. An integrated DOC/SCR module does not need to regenerated to get rid of soot, and the module's compact size lets it be mounted in a variety of remote locations, freeing up valuable space in the engine compartment, especially in more compact equipment.
