NASHVILLE, Tenn. – During the Firehouse Expo trade show in Nashville, Tennessee, Sutphen Corporation became one of the first fire apparatus manufacturers to showcase the new Cummins X12 engine.
Released in the fall of 2018, the Cummins X12 engine is designed specifically for the fire service. The new engine is lighter, more reliable and easier to maintain in comparison to other 12-liter engines.
“Sutphen is proud to lead the charge in showcasing the new X12 engine, especially in such a great fire service region,” said Justin Howell, southeast sales territory manager for Sutphen. “We are excited to offer this new engine to customers which gives them more flexibility and customization than ever before.”
During the Firehouse Expo trade show, a Sutphen SPH 100 aerial platform had the special engine.
The new X12 engine is 400-600 pounds lighter than comparable engines and is an option on all Sutphen apparatuses. This reduction in engine weight allows for additional items to be placed elsewhere on the truck including, but not limited to extra gear, water or foam.
“The X12 was designed for the fire and emergency market,” said Richard Paglioni, a Cummins sales representative. “Cummins and Sutphen worked closely together for optimum vehicle integration.”
Sutphen Corporation is an Ohio-based, privately-held, family-owned business that has manufactured the highest-quality, heavy-duty, custom-built emergency response vehicles since 1890. The company’s headquarters is located in Dublin, Ohio, a northwest suburb of Columbus.
