Cranes are the heart of every construction project. A crane keeps the project moving, and most work comes to a standstill when the diesel motor is down for repair or maintenance. On any given day, a construction crane might lift steel beams, move concrete slabs, or place a huge generator in just the right place.
For dependability and long-lasting performance, every crane needs a powerful engine with self-diagnostics, prognostics, and high fuel efficiency. Cummins makes a crane engine that delivers the total package. Let’s look at why every crane needs a Cummins QSK19.

Low-Maintenance Gives You Shorter Downtimes
Cummins designed the QSK19 diesel motor for construction managers who want to minimize downtime. Features like articulated pistons that last 30 percent longer and two-stage oil filters that only need to be changed every 250 hours keep your crane working on the job rather than passively waiting for maintenance.
