Columbus, Ind. — Cummins Inc. has submitted its third engine for certification under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) diesel emissions standards, which take effect October 1. The heavy duty 11-liter ISM engine will be certified to EPA standards that were agreed upon by engine manufacturers in 1998.
The company also has introduced an uptime guarantee program for its heavy-duty on-highway truck engines as a result of the new requirements. Under the guarantee, if any part on a customer’s ISX or ISM engine fails and cannot be repaired within 24 hours, Cummins says it will pay for the repairs and provide a free rental vehicle.
