Perkins has launched the compact, four-cylinder 404F-E22TA, an engine designed to meet Tier 4-Final/EU Stage IIIB emissions standards.
It is a turbocharged, aftercooled, 2.2-liter model designed for compact equipment manufacturers in construction applications. The company says the model retains many of the features of the 400 Series but adds a common rail fuel system and full authority electronics that will provide a tangible and marked increase in performance, and allow OEMs greater flexibility in tailoring the engine to specific applications. It also allows OEMs to use a smaller displacement engine in machines where engines up to 2.9 liters may have been the norm. Performance has been boosted to 67 horsepower.
