Extended warranty for Cummins Performance Series reduces total cost of operation
Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) announces the introduction of a new ENCOMPASS Extra extended warranty program for its latest F3.8, B4.5, B6.7 and L9 Performance Series engines used in construction, logging, agriculture, oil and gas, power unit and g-drive applications.
“Our Performance Series engines are designed to deliver more with less; more power and torque with less servicing and running costs. Our new extended warranty program provides an additional benefit, giving customers the confidence and security of extra protection at a very competitive price,” said Chris Brown, Cummins Global Off-Highway Aftermarket Director.
Cummins standard engine warranty is 2 years or 2,000 hours, whichever occurs first. Or, 1 year with unlimited hours if the 2,000 hours is exceeded in the first year. The new ENCOMPASS Extra program provides a range of engine coverage options up to 5 years with unlimited hours (8,000 hours on the F3.8 engine). It can cover parts and labour or parts, labour and travel depending on customer needs. Additional coverage is also available for the Cummins aftertreatment to provide the same protection level as with the engine.
“The simpler configuration of our Performance Series engines has enabled Cummins to offer a very competitive program with no deductible. This has a positive impact on total cost of operation and protects the operator from unexpected costs. It reduces the owner’s risk and is ideal for machines in rental fleets. Customers should contact their local distributor to talk about ENCOMPASS Extra options and pricing,” added Brown.
Cummins’ higher power density enables equipment manufacturers to produce machines with more capability. Alternatively, they can consider using engines of smaller displacement to save cost without impacting machine operation.
The Performance Series’ engines feature a less complex design with no EGR. The reduced weight and size make them easier and cheaper to install. The latest Single Module™ aftertreatment system is also easier to install, being 30% smaller and 50% lighter than the previous system. Suitable applications for the construction and materials handling industry include excavators, wheeled loaders, fork trucks, cranes, container handlers, rollers, compactors, compressors and many more.
