That is almost as high as Mont Blanc, at 4,810 metres the highest mountain in the Alps and the EU.
Perkins spare parts are also tested for their tolerance to temperature fluctuations. This is because many Perkins engines operate in some of the most demanding environments in the world, often in remote areas and in the most extreme cases several days away from a service location. Users need to be confident that their starter, for example, will work for them regardless of external conditions, from subarctic tundra to scorching hot deserts, or in the less exotic environment of factories.
The starter delivers the power required to start the compression sequence in the diesel engine. It draws its charge from the battery, which in turn is continuously charged while the engine is running.
You can only rely on your Perkins engine if the starting and charging system is effective and fully functional. This need for reliability is the reason why Perkins tests every starter and alternator. This ensures that each individual starter can be started at least 36,000 times. In other words, every Perkins starter can be started twice a day, 365 days a year, for over 50 years.
For some applications, such as machines that run around the clock, the engine actually needs to perform only a relatively small number of starts. Other motors must be constantly switched on and off again. It is therefore essential to have a starter that works day after day, all year round, regardless of the machine application.

Electrical components from Perkins – powerful at every start
Genuine Perkins components are synonymous with strong performance, outstanding quality and high reliability. With genuine Perkins parts, you can be confident that your engine will always be ready for use, even in extreme weather conditions.
- High reliability and long service life
- Starter motors and spare parts at the latest state of the art
- Safe engine start and high vibration resistance
- Safe function of starter motor and alternator (generator)
Please change the starter motor if the starting process can only be slowed down. It takes longer for the engine to react and start. This could be a defect in the starter motor.
With the alternator, the tension of the belt is important. If it is too loose, it will slip. If the belt tension is too high, the bearings of the alternator can be damaged. The optimal tuning of all components is therefore absolutely essential to ensure that your engine runs reliably.
- Optimal power transmission
- Perfect running characteristics
- Reliability and strength through fibre reinforcements
Remember that: When the alternator (generator) is replaced, the fan belt should also be replaced, too. The connecting cables should also be checked and replaced if necessary.
