It has just been announced that new agricultural machines from Case IH, Arbos and New Holland are all now benefiting from the FPT engines. They all include second-generation high-efficiency selective catalytic reduction aftertreatment system (HI-eSCR 2) that meets the strict EU emission standard while still enabling high levels of fuel economy, power and torque density.
The 6.7-liter, six-cylinder, N67 engine powering Case IH’s Optum 300 CVX Drive comes equipped with a VGT Turbocharger, delivering 230kW of power and maximum torque of 1,282Nm. What’s most impressive about the engine is that it provides this enhanced performance in the same dimensions and layout as the previous model, while extending the service interval for the machine by 150 hours to 750. The same engine, minus the turbocharger, is also on the Arbos P7000, delivering 206kW and 1,100Nm.
In contrast, New Holland’s T5 features the N45, FPT’s 4.5-liter, four-cylinder unit with 114kW of power and 630Nm of torque at its disposal.
Each of the engines includes the HI-eSCR2. An FPT spokesman said, “This technology integrates a particulate filtration system on an SCR module, which does not require vehicle modifications from the Stage IV solution. HI-eSCR2 ensures compliance with the Stage V emission regulations, and also offers many customer benefits.
“Thanks to its integration, HI-eSCR2 does not compromise the visibility or maneuverability of the vehicle and maintains the compactness of the engine. The aftertreatment system ensures high productivity, simple installation, high durability, maximized uptime, environmental sustainability and reduced operating costs.”
Each of the engines was on display at the EIMA agricultural show in Bologna, Italy, last week.
