LOUISVILLE, KY. — Cummins has unveiled a new A Series engines for the industrial markets, available from 18 to 60 horsepower (hp), and from 0.9 to 2.3 litres displacement.
The engine company made the launch at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2002 in Las Vegas March 19.
“Cummins can now power equipment with engines ranging from 18 to 3500 hp – and from 0.9 to 78 liters. With the launch of these new smaller engines, Cummins can offer more OEMs the convenience and financial benefit of dealing with a single-source engine supplier,” says Mark Yragui, vice president – industrial business at Cummins.
The A Series includes optional features for easier equipment integration in a wide variety of applications, such as dual hydraulic pump mounts, crank-mounted PTO, a variety of drivetrain mounting configurations, one-side serviceability, integrated cold-start aids, a low-noise signature and structural capability.
The A Series lineup includes three engine families with a total of six different hp ratings and torque curves. In the 45-60 h range, there is the naturally aspirated A2000/A2300 (45-60 hp). The A1400/A1700 three cylinder, (31-37 hp) uses the same block power cylinder technology and feature content as their four-cylinder counterparts. The A900 (18 hp) is a three-cylinder design that delivers diesel dependability and durability with reduced maintenance. This 0.9 liter diesel features lower operating costs, higher equipment resale value and many times the life span of any gasoline engine, making it perfect for high-load, high-utilization applications, says Cummins.
All A Series engines are fully backed by a Cummins comprehensive two-year/ 2,000-hour warranty. Major components are covered out to three years/3,000 hours.
