AGCO, a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, announced its Tier 4 Final/Stage IV engine emissions strategy for its AGCO Power diesel engines. The updated after-treatment system will continue to offer an effective method for farmers to reduce emissions without compromising power, efficiency or fuel economy.
AGCO will continue to use its proven e3 SCR technology in its AGCO Power engines to address the needs of Tier 4 Final/Stage IV engine requirements. In select specific models, a small amount of cooled exhaust gas recirculation (cEGR) will also be added in order to ensure emissions compliance while minimizing fluid consumption and improving power balance. AGCO has established leadership and experience with both SCR and cEGR from launching both technologies on tractors in Tier 3/Stage IIIa.
Customers can expect that there will not be any changes to the way that they operate and maintain their future Tier 4 Final/Stage IV AGCO equipment. AGCO Power engines will operate efficiently delivering total fluid economy (diesel fuel and DEF) that will meet or exceed the same fluid consumption levels as in AGCO's Tier 4i/Stage IIIb machines.
