Genuine Cummins ReCon® Engines: The Smart Choice

Cummins engines have a reputation for being virtually indestructible, delivering exceptional value over the lifespan of your equipment. But like all engines, Cummins engines may one day need to have major components replaced or overhauls performed.

Genuine Cummins ReCon engines and parts provide you with a cost-effective, environmentally friendly, no-surprise solution that quickly puts your Cummins powered equipment back to work. But don't take our word for it, watch and listen to what happened when one of our customers repowered their fleet of equipment with Cummins ReCon engines.

Factory Remanufactured vs. Uncertified Rebuilds & Repairs

Climbing steep grades with an 18-wheeler? Navigating the world's waters in a Cummins powered boat? Moving a mountain with a bulldozer? Or making sure children arrive to school on time? Cummins ReCon engines handle the job with power to spare. Cummins offers factory remanufactured Short Blocks, Long Blocks and engines for Cummins Heavy-duty L10, M, N and ISX/QSX engine platforms as well as MidRange B, C and ISL/QSL engine platforms.

In fact, more fleets and owner/operators are switching from major overhauls to Cummins ReCon engine options than ever before and with good reason. With a ReCon engine, you're not going to have any surprises and you'll quickly be back to work.

Cummins ReCon: The Remanufacturing Process

Unlike an engine shop that repairs or rebuilds engines by replacing parts that are obviously broken or malfunctioning, Cummins remanufacturing follows a rigorous process that ensures every part is examined, cleaned, remachined and tested to meet Cummins' exact specifications. If upgrades have been made to the original design of a component, all applicable upgrades will be included as the engine or part is remanufactured. The following steps describe the measures Cummins takes to remanufacture its engines and parts, creating a product that is comparable to a new Cummins product.
