Cummins F3.8 Performance Series engine


Cummins’ Performance Series engines deliver on average 20 percent higher torque and 10 percent more power across the range, enabling higher machine capability. Moreover, the improved Single Module aftertreatment technology manages the PM and NOx emissions more effectively, enabling EGR to be removed from the engines and making them lighter, more compact and easier to install.


The partnership between Cummins and Hyundai Construction Equipment

«Hyundai Construction Equipment has been a strategic off-highway partner to Cummins for 30 years, and we value our continuing business relationship», said Eric Neal, Executive Director Global Off-Highway Business at Cummins. «Our Performance Series products were designed as global platforms. The engines meet the latest US EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage V ultra-low emissions levels and can be tailored to meet China CSIV and India BSIV regulations as well. This enables Hyundai to have simplified installations that drive economies of scale in their production and ease of servicing in the field», added Mr Neal.
