The Cummins at Glance
Cummins is an American corporation that manufactures electrical equipment for special vehicles. It is an internationally recognized brand. Cummins engines can be a part of construction or agricultural equipment, trucks, buses, military, and marine vehicles. The range of models is increasing every year. In our range, you can find Cummins spare parts for skid steer, mini-excavator, and wheel excavator. Drivers and auto mechanics are most frequently looking for Cummins 12v starters. This model is known for its trouble-free operation.
Cummins was founded in 1919. Today, this brand is mostly associated with diesel engines. Although the company produces electric generators and all types of components for such units. Since 2001, this corporation has also been involved in the design and manufacture of alternative fuel engines in cooperation with Canada's Westport.
Maintenance of Electrical Equipment
To run the engine, the Cummins starter motor overcomes the frictional resistance of the crankshaft bearings and pistons compression. For diesel models, the speed required for starting is 100-200 rpm. For gasoline cars, it is lower and usually amounts to 40-100 revolutions per minute. So, models used in diesel units are more powerful. Any starter is a key component after the failure of which it is impossible to run the engine, and, consequently, the vehicle. This is one of the most important elements in the design of the car. This unit life depends on many factors, including the following:
The Cummins starter is most often powered by a DC motor. In cars, buses, and small vans, 12 V is supplied to the dashboard. For trucks, it is 24 V. If we talk about the current, this parameter is about 150-200 A, but there are models that need up to 600 A. The cost of equipment depends on the power of the starter, which is within 0.4-10 kW.
Signs & Causes of Breakdowns
If drivers hear noises when starting the car, or they have freezing, i.e. no response to turning the key in the ignition, these are signals that the unit should be repaired or replaced. Vehicle owners should not postpone because it will be impossible to start the engine. One of the main symptoms is a rumble without turning the crankshaft. In this case, the clutch mechanism is most likely damaged.
