In an exclusive interview with iVT, AGCO’s senior vice president of engineering Kelvin Bennett gives insight into the key features of the first engine in a new family and explains why this powerhouse could be useful for OEM designers in the construction sector. The high-speed 7.5-litre Core75 offers 12% more power compared to the previous low-speed variant (299 hp / 223 kW), a wider speed range up to 2100 RPM, 24 voltage electrics and a PWM controlled alternator as an option. What’s more, the Core75 has exceptional fuel economy – up to 0.309 lb/hph (188g / kWh).
