The right OEM engine for the right application: a purchasing guide for OEMs

Original equipment manufacturers (OEM) require engines that meet strict specifications for their application. With the final Tier 4 regulations now in effect, OEMs have some key considerations to examine before purchasing a new engine.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the Tier 4 regulations to cut down on harmful pollutants, specifically the byproducts known to create smog, but the new regulations have been causing problems for diesel engine owners. Common problems for owners include uncertainty as to whether the new standards apply to their application, if the new OEM engine will fit and adapt to existing space constraints and a more complex buying process often involving customization.
