Cummins Performance Series Engines

Cummins Performance Series engines for the construction market allow customers to do More With Less. More performance, more reliability, more machine capability, more productivity and more uptime with less fuel usage, less complexity, less weight and less total cost of operation. 

When developing its next-generation engine portfolio, Cummins set out to deliver a global platform designed with the customer in mind – more of what they want with less operating cost and complexity. The lineup offers a cumulative horsepower range from 74 hp up to 675 hp to suit a wide range of applications. Performance Series engines in the 100 – 430 hp range average up to 10 percent more horsepower and as much as 20 percent more torque than previous models. In addition, engines in this power range are EGR-free, with four featuring Cummins Single Module™ aftertreatment system. 

This system combines Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) dosing/mixing, diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and the diesel particulate filter (DPF) into a single canister that is up to 30 percent lighter and 50 percent smaller than the traditional switchback aftertreatment.

Isuzu: Diesel for the Future

Dollars earned and relationships maintained define customer uptime and satisfaction, but what if we could monitor machine operation to avoid downed equipment and frozen productivity?  In these situations, “prognostics” looks into the future to help provide an advanced event notification system to improve customer satisfaction.

When evaluating equipment, understanding failures and predicting operations could help isolate losses and identify when or where a problem will occur.  The latest, compact and cloud based computer technologies allow companies to monitor engine data remotely, apply advanced algorithms to the information gathered and use predictive operations to stop a failure or prepare for the inevitable.  All of this information flows out through cell towers to feed the customer information about their machines, alert repairing dealers, and confirms the OEM’s equipment is ahead of the competition.  

With the use of a prognostic system, equipment fleet management is simplified, saving time and effort in equipment maintenance.  When regular scheduled maintenance is required, the system can notify the fleet manager by text message or email that the hours are up and an oil change is required.  Simultaneously, the fleet equipment management service team is dispatched prepared with knowledge of the engine so parts are at the ready. The online system is updated by the team, providing solid records of timely equipment support.

Prognostics is changing our network today and will be a staple of service operations in the future, resulting in greater customer satisfaction, higher performing equipment and a well prepared service network.  Can you see the future?


MTU Series 1300/OM 471

MTU offers a wide range of economical, high-performance diesel engines for construction, deployment in ports, airport vehicles and ground equipment. MTU engines also have a proven reputation as drive systems for stationary applications and machines, such as pumps and compressors.

Covering the 430 - 523 hp power range, the Series 1300 is the perfect engine for your equipment. As a full systems supplier with a wealth of integration expertise, MTU delivers the complete package, optimally tailored to your needs—with both software and hardware. And for even greater flexibility in highly specialized applications, MTU offers various power takeoff options.

To ensure trouble-free operation, even under the most extreme conditions, MTU engines must undergo repeated testing in continuous operation under full load in the heat, cold and dust, with frequent load changes. There’s simply no better way to ensure maximum availability. In addition to the well-known longevity of MTU engines, they are also incredibly cost-effective, thanks to their easy-to-maintain design and long service intervals. They minimize expenses, reduce downtime and keep your equipment operating reliably with minimal interruptions.

MTU engines are among the most fuel-efficient on the market due to their second-generation common rail injection system and intelligent engine management system. Optimized, efficient combustion using cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and exhaust aftertreatment with SCR helps them meet the widest range of emissions specifications up to EPA Tier 4 and EU Stage V with the addition of a DOC/DPF module.

You can also depend on MTU when it comes to service: as a global player, MTU supports customers around the world with maintenance and spare parts—whenever and wherever they operate. Learn more at
