Cummins launches new engines


Indiana-based engine manufacturer Cummins and Wisconsin-based Konrad Marine have added 480-hp and 550-hp ratings to the diesel sterndrive packages they jointly offer.

The 480-hp rating is approved for both recreational and commercial applications. The package offers 37 percent more horsepower and 129 percent more torque than gasoline outboards, and 46 percent more horsepower and 54 percent more torque than other diesel sterndrive products sold into the commercial space.

The 550-hp rating is intended for recreational applications. It offers 162 percent more torque than outboards, and more than any other diesel sterndrive offered in the recreational space, according to a company news release.

In related news, Cummins has created a dedicated Cummins Marine organization within its existing engine operating segment. The new division consolidates its commercial and recreational teams.

Cummins Marine will be led by Jim Schacht, formerly general manager and executive director of Cummins Commercial Marine.

“Today’s announcement reflects how important our marine customers are to us,” Schacht said. “Customers will benefit with access to a single, global team of experts who are focused on enabling their success by addressing all of their propulsion, power and integration needs.”
