Cummins Raises Generator Prices

Cummins has announced price increases for its commercial generators, with price hikes ranging from 7 to 10 percent.

Cummins Power Generation has announced price increases for its commercial generators, with prices of EPA Tier 3-certified generator sets rising by up to 10 percent while prices of EPA Tier 2-certified generator sets up 7 percent. The company said prices have been raised due to market conditions and the rising cost of raw materials, as well as additional technology required to meet lower emissions levels mandated by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as of January 1.

"These adjustments are part of Cummins' strategic response to market conditions," said Tony Satterthwaite, Vice President of the Commercial Generator Set Business at Cummins. "With even more stringent EPA emissions regulations coming, we will continue to reinvest in our leading technology and operations to serve our customers well."
