History

The Cummins Engine Company was founded in 1919 by namesake Clessie Cummins, an Indiana mechanic. Cummins first diesel was the 1.5 to 8 hp HVID used by farmers for powering pumps. Founded by Clessie Cummins and W.G. Irwin, the Company is still located at the original factory site in Columbus, Indiana. 60% of production in that first year was marine. In 1933 they introduced the successful Model H, used in small railroad switchers. In the post WWII U.S. road building boom Cummins, with their N Series engines, became the leader in heavy duty truck engines, from 1952 to 1959 they had more than half the market. In the 1960s the company opened an assembly plant in Shotts, Scotland. In 1984, Cummins joined Case in developing the B series agricultural engine. Almost immediately, the B series engines were marinized by Cummins (1986) and various third parties and fitted into vessels. In 1989, the 5.9L B series engine was introduced as an option in the Dodge Ram pickup. After 1989, the B series engines became available in light duty, medium duty and select heavy duty trucks and buses. In 2002, Cummins entered into a 50/50 joint venture with Brunswick’s Mercury Marine division to focus on marine propulsion applications below 15 liters for yachts, small craft, etc. Cummins supplied their engines below 15 liters and Mercury their MerCruiser diesels sourced from various engine builders including Isuzu/GM and Detroit Diesel’s VM. MerCruiser also provided their range of sterndrives. They build a new factory to assemble the Cummins MerCruiser diesel marine engines. This joint venture began to dissolve in 2011 and was completed in 2012. For the non-Cummins MerCruiser diesel engines specifications, etc., go to the MerCruiser page.

DUTY RATINGS

Continuous (CD, CON): Intended for use in applications requiring uninterrupted and unlimited service at full power.

Heavy Duty (HD): Intended for nearly continuous use in variable load applications, where full power is limited to eight hours out of every ten hours of operation. Also, reduced power operation must be at or below cruise rpm, which is 200 rpm below the maximum rated speed. This rating is for applications operating less than 5000 hours per year.

Medium Continuous (MD & MCD): Intended for moderate use in variable load applications, where full power is limited to six hours out of every twelve hours of operation. Also, reduced power operation must be at or below cruise rpm, which is 200 rpm below the maximum rated speed. This rating is for applications operating less than 3000 hours per year.

Intermittent (ID, INT): Intended for intermittent use in variable load applications, where full power is limited to two hours out of every eight hours of operation. Also, reduced power operation must be at or below cruise rpm, which is 200 rpm below the maximum rated speed. This rating is for applications operating less than 1500 hours per year.

Government Service (GS): Intended for infrequent use in variable load applications, where full power is limited to one hour out of every eight hours of operation. Also, reduced power operation must be at or below cruise speed (rpm). Cruise speed (rpm) is dependent on the engine rated speed (rpm), Refer to Table 1 below. For applications operating less than 500 hours per year. Engines with this rating are restricted to non-revenue generating government service propulsion applications. It is not to be used in any revenue generating commercial applications, nor is it to be used in recreational/pleasure applications

High Output (HO): Intended for infrequent use in variable load applications, where full power is limited to one hour out of every eight hours of operation. Also, reduced power operation must be at or below cruise speed (rpm). Cruise speed (rpm) is dependent on the engine rated speed (rpm), Refer to Table 1 below. For applications operating less than 500 hours per year. Engines with this rating are intended for powering recreational/pleasure use vessels only. Commercial use is defined as any work or employment related use of the product, or any use of the product which generates income, for any part of the warranty period, even if the product is only occasionally used for such purposes.

Rating Conditions: Declared power ratings are based upon ISO 15550 reference conditions/ air pressure of 100kPa (29.612 in Hg) air temperature of 25° C (77°F) and 30% relative humidity. Propeller Shaft Power represents the net power available after typical reverse/reduction gear losses and is 97% of rated power. Power rated in accordance with IMCI procedures.

Duty Ratings Table 1

Rated Speed Cruise Speed (reduction from rated)
2000 to 2800 rpm 200 rpm
2801 to 3500 rpm 300 rpm

General Comments About the Website

FROM Donald: "This is an awesome website. I found the information that I needed right away from one of the over 20,000 free articles that you provide as a public service. I'm surprised that so much if this site is free. But I still signed up so I could access the thousands of expanded pages, interesting articles, and dozens of valuable programs! The member's library of books, magazines and videos that I can view online is really terrific! I understand that you and your staff are all unpaid volunteers. Please keep up the good work. And I commend you for your plans to add another 10,000 free informative articles over the next year. I'm thrilled to support you in this endeavor with my small membership donation. Thanks again for all your hard work."

FROM Huey: "I agree with my Uncle, I too have found the articles to be very enlightening. They say that it will take about 100,000 articles to cover the full scope that they have envisioned for the website. They have over 20,000 articles so far and that's doing pretty well, but it could take several years to get the rest. I also noticed that many of the Main Topic Pages and some of the article pages are still in the rough draft stage. I guess that they will fill in as they can get volunteers to work on them. But what I can't figure out is why anyone would spend the time writing informative in depth articles just to give away free to this website for publication? What's in it for them?"

FROM Dewey: "Well Huey, to me It looks like most of the articles on this website are written by very informed people, like boating instructors, boat designers, boat builders, riggers, electricians, fitters, marine repair technicians and marine surveyors. Writing such articles helps establish them as knowledgeable professionals. After all, this website was originally created by a school for marine technicians and marine surveyors. The website is growing in content every day. They even had to move to a bigger, more powerful server because the website's traffic has been growing exponentially."

FROM Louie: "I agree with everyone above. This site is quickly becoming the ultimate reference resource about every aspect of boats and ships for everyone from the beginning recreational boater to the seasoned professional mariner. I use the topic pages on the right sidebar to browse around the website. It's like a Junior Woodchucks' Guidebook for Boaters. Their Members' Library of over 300 popular and obscure books and over 200 magazine back issues that can be viewed online is fabulous. The Academy's magazine is especially informative. On top of that, there is the "Ask-An-Expert program for members where you can get an expert's answer to any of your boat questions. And a whole years membership is only $25. What a deal! I really love being part of this "Everything About Boats" community and help provide thousands of helpful articles free to the public. I think that I'll sit down right now and write an article about my experiences boating with my uncle."

FROM Scrooge: "You rave about this website like it was the best thing since sliced bread. Well, I think it stinks. Sure, it has a lot of good information for boaters, and they're adding more every day, but it will probably never be finished. Furthermore, I don't even own a boat. And I wouldn't have a boat even if someone gave me one. Boats are a waste of money and time and energy and money! They're just a hole in the water you pour money into. If you gave me a boat, I'd sell it quicker then you could say Baggywrinkle. Then I'd lock up the cash with all my other money so I could keep my eye on it and count it every day. Bah humbug."

FROM Daisy: "I'm just so glad that Donald got the boat so we and the boys could enjoy boating — together. And of course all of the girls, April, May, and June, love to be on the water too, especially when that is where the boys are. Oh poor Scrooge, boating is more fun then you could possibly imagine."

FROM Scrooge: "After seeing how much fun you all have on the water together, I regret that I didn't have that much fun when I was young. I've had a change of heart, and I'm giving each of you a Lifetime Academy Membership."

FROM Editor: "For those of you that have stayed with us this far, many thanks, and we hope that you found this little narrative informative. Your faithful support inspires us to keep working on this phenomenal website. We know that we have a lot more to do. Ultimately, we hope that we can help you enjoy the wonder filled world of boating as much as we do. We are all waiting to see what you have to say about this webpage article.
