INTERMAT launch for Cummins QSF 2.8
Hugh Foden said the QSF2.8 is Cummins' smallest engine to use full-authority electronic controls
Cummins has revealed its latest engine platform to cover the 37-55kW sector.
Called the QSF2.8, the new four-cylinder platform is the smallest engine from Cummins to use full-authority electronic controls for high-pressure common rail injection.
The 2.8litre engine is available in naturally aspirated (37kW) and turbocharged (55kW) packages, and has been developed as a global engine platform.
“The QSF2.8 brings new power capability to many OEMs,” said Hugh Foden, executive director of Cummins off-highway business.
“Combining a sculpted cylinder block design with composite materials for the oil pan, oil filter and valve cover, we’ve been able to keep the wet weight of the QSF2.8 to just 230kg.”
