One of the biggest names in cranes globally, Tadano began using Cummins engines in 2003 when it decided to increase its export business. “Cummins is a respected global brand with quality product and a worldwide service support network,” says Minoru Hirose, manager of Tadano’s Quality Assurance Group. “We considered that very important in helping us expand our global reach.” Around 1000 Cummins engines will be installed in rough terrain cranes manufactured by Tadano this year at its Shido plant in Kagawa, Japan.
Cummins and Komatsu have a long-standing partnership that cuts across many areas of the companies’ businesses, including multiple joint ventures such as diesel engine design and manufacturing.
One of the joint ventures is Komatsu Cummins Engine Company (KCEC) in Japan which builds mid-range industrial engines for both companies. The KCEC facility is situated within Komatsu’s Oyama plant; production started in late 1995 and the one-millionth KCEC engine was built in 2018. Production volume for 2019 is around 45,000 units.
When replacing a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), it's important to consider the difference between Genuine Cummins DPFs and DPFs that "will fit."
Will-fit DPFs can create harmful levels of backpressure, require excessive regenerations and may not be cleaned completely. These and other factors can result in excessive fuel and DEF use, potential turbo failures, triggering of fault code lamps, and additional field service calls. We have the test data to prove it: to keep your engine running at optimum level – long-term or short-term – the best choice is Cummins.
