The engine, according to Cummins, is targeted toward a wide range of off-highway machinery, with a top rating of 290hp and a peak torque of 1200Nm targeted for Stage 6/Tier 5 regulations.

“From working closely with customers, we’re acutely aware of the demand for combustion technology that delivers high power density and improved efficiency,” said Beau Lintereur, Executive Director Off Highway. “The introduction of this clean sheet diesel engine marks another milestone, as we continue our commitment to diversifying our portfolio of combustion technologies.”


According to the manufacturer, the engine represents the next generation of Cummins’ combustion technology platforms aiming to reduce emissions and operating costs. The B6.7 hydrogen engine is designed for versatility, with the engine compatible with diesel, biodiesel, natural gas, and hydrogen. All engines across the range will use the same transmission, cooling, and hydraulic systems to reduce complexity for equipment manufacturers.

“With this launch, we are bringing customers a smaller and easier to install platform, that will reduce operating costs and the overarching environmental impact,” said Lintereur. “We’re looking forward to presenting this technology at Intermat and discuss the future of how we power construction.”

News of Cummins’ latest release comes a month after the company released its latest diesel engine, the X15, that will be compliant with USA EPA and CARB 2027 regulations at its launch.

Intermat 2024 will take place from April 24-27 and will showcase the latest in sustainable construction solutions and technologies as the heavy equipment and machinery industries move toward decarbonisation.
