The 403J-11T is the latest addition to the Perkins global product range, joining three other 24-hp engines in the line-up that meet U.S. EPA Tier IV Final emission standards, and offers original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) the choice at this power node.

Perkins Engines launched its newest engine, the 403J-11T, at The Rental Show hosted by the American Rental Association (ARA). The new engine outputs 24 hp (18.4 kW) and 86 Nm (63.4 lb-ft) of torque and is particularly suited to power small construction equipment that is popular among North American rental fleets.

"For this critical power of 24 hp, OEMs need to balance multiple engine characteristics to get the best match for their machines," said Oliver Lythgoe, marketing manager of 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."

Drawing on more than 85 years of diesel engine experience, the 403J-11T engine is just the latest release in major investments by Perkins in small engines. The range is being transformed to include new model introductions, upgrades for the latest world emissions standards, and upgrades in power and torque.

However, investments extend beyond new products like the Perkins 403J-11T. Other areas of investment include the creation of new manufacturing lines and implementing cutting-edge automation technologies.

"Our OEM and rental customers appreciate our unique ability to collaborate with them based on their needs, as well as provide them with reliable, quality products," Andy Zuckerman, Perkins manager of global rental operations, said.

Rental Focused, Rental Strong

Every Perkins engine is backed by the Perkins Rental Support Program, which help manage the latest emissions standards and improve bottom line. Staffed by highly-skilled maintenance and service experts, the Perkins Rental Support Program provides the necessary tools to increase return on investment and enhance the customer experience, according to the manufacturer.
