“We feel we’re ahead of the Tier 4 Final game because we chose SCR early,” said Mario Gasparri, president, CNH Construction, speaking at a New Holland press conference today. The company says it has learned the ins and outs of SCR technology from sister company Iveco‘s truck engine experience. The Tier 4 Final engine will offer a 95 percent decrease in NOx, it says.
The company showed off its Tier 4 Interim SCR engines in several Intermat introductions, including its C Series excavators sporting an all-yellow color scheme and new ROPS/FOPS cab. New Holland says the diesel emissions fluid tank required on SCR systems is not an issue with North American customers “because of the 10 percent fuel savings.” The DEF in the excavator’s tank will last about 10 weeks under normal working conditions, says the company. New Holland will launch the final models of its C Series range this year.
New Holland also showcased its W300C and W230C wheel loaders, which will have an anticipated three-to-one fuel to DEF refill ratio.
