Tier 4 Interim Approval for AGCO SISU POWER Engines

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 4 interim approval was granted on the 14th of December 2010 for AGCO SISU POWER engines over 130 kW. The corresponding European Union (EU) Stage IIIB approval was granted already earlier this fall. This approval is one of the first the US EPA has granted for non-road engines utilizing SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) technology. “The Stage IIIB and Tier 4 interim requirements will be applied in production for ratings above 130 kW starting January 1st, 2011. Engine production has already started at the AGCO SISU POWER factory in Nokia, Finland for non-road engine customers in Europe and the U.S.,” explained Martin Richenhagen, AGCO Chairman, President and CEO.

    i think its gona be very expensive maintaince issue that farmers dont need to have to deal with..put that sort of emissions stuff on transport trucks and not burden farmers with extra costs..we are just finally starting to make a profit again and now cant buy new equipment cause maintaince costs will be HUGE!!!!!

    As manufacturers we must follow the law. It is the cost we all pay for cleaner air. New components or systems increase the costs for Tier IV technology compliance.
