Perkins Engines offers the 403D-15T engine, a 3-cylinder, 1.5 litre, turbocharged unit producing 30kW (40.2hp). The engine complements the existing 403D-15 and 404D-15 models, which offer 25.1kW (33.7bhp) and 26.5kW (35.5bhp) respectively. OEMs wanting to downsize their machines will be pleased to hear that the 403D-15T has an engine envelope of only only 0.18m3 and weighs156.5kg, reducing quite dramatically any weight penalty for equipment. Improved coolant flows have permitted a reduction in radiator size, so the overall engine pacakge remains very compact. Its improved power density makes it suitable for turf, agricultural, construction and general industrial applications, with peak torque available of 112Nm at 1800 rpm. The 403D-15T maintains the 500-hour service interval periods and competitive sfc that are the hallmarks of the 400 Series. Other OEM benefits include easy changeover, Tier 3/Stage IIIa compliance and a variety of engine options, such as high or low fan position, optional low noise fan and electronic controlled governing.
