Perkins Engine

Perkins has been building high-speed diesel engines for more than 80 years. This 402D-05 model engine is the smallest radiator cooled diesel engine made while still offering the same exceptional performance and long life as the larger slower turning engines. Because of the small size, it makes it ideally suited for use in auxiliary power units and small generators. Some of the features include;

  • Glow plugs for cold weather starting
  • radiator cooled
  • Can be used full or part-time
  • Long service intervals - up to 500 hours between oil changes)
  • Same warranty as other larger low turning Perkins engines
