New Holland Construction 200 Series skid steers and compact track loaders feature new engines and Tier 4 Final emissions control technology tailored for each model.
“With new engines, the 200 Series will not only meet the Tier 4 standards, they will also have more power and capability. They can still work in the same spaces they did before, but they will perform like a larger machine,” says Paul Wade, Construction Equipment Product Marketing Manager.
New Holland’s L230 skid steer and C238 compact track loader meet Tier 4 Final emissions standards with SCR technology. SCR is a cool-running, quiet system that’s separate from the main engine function and does not compromise horsepower or torque.
The SCR system requires the use of AdBlue/DEF, a non-toxic water and urea solution, to neutralize the noxious nitrogen oxides found in the exhaust emissions and to turn them into harmless water and nitrogen. The addition of AdBlue contributes to fuel cost savings, even when the initial purchase price is taken into account.
The new L228 skid steer loader and the C232 compact track loader feature an FPT diesel four cylinder turbocharged and after-cooled engines with a high pressure common rail (HPCR) fuel system design and electronic controls. These engines meet the Tier 4 Final emissions mandate with a maintenance-free diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC)-only solution which eliminates the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
The L220 has a 12% increase in horsepower from 60 to 67 gross hp. The L218 remains at 60 gross hp, but has 7% more torque for additional power and performance.
The small-frame L213 and L216 compact skid steers meet Tier 4 Final status using CEGR and DPF technology. The L213 skid steer features a 2.2-liter ISM engine. With this new engine, the gross horsepower increases from 46 to 49 hp. with a 9.6% torque boost. The L216 boasts an increased operating lift capacity of 1,600 lbs and engine horsepower has been increased by 8 hp. A hydraulic quick coupler option is now available on both of these compact skid steers.
