New Holland meets emission reg’s, boosts power

New Holland Construction says its 200 Series skid steers and compact track loaders will benefit from new, more powerful engines and Tier 4 Final emissions control technology specifically 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,” said Paul Wade, construction equipment product marketing manager. “They can still work in the same spaces they did before, but they will perform like a larger machine.” 

New Holland’s L230 skid steer and C238 compact track loader meet Tier 4 Final emissions standards with SCR technology. A company news release describes SCR as “a cool-running, quiet system that’s separate from the main engine function and does not compromise horsepower or torque.”

In fact, SCR actually improves engine performance – including fuel economy, power and torque – and the SCR after-treatment requires an easy-to-use additive.

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 turn them into harmless water and nitrogen. The addition of AdBlue contributes to significant fuel cost savings, according to New Holland Construction, even when the initial purchase price is taken into account.

Meanwhile, the new L228 skid steer loader and the C232 compact track loader feature FPT diesel four-cylinder turbocharged and after-cooled engines with high-pressure common rail (HPCR) fuel system designs 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).

New Holland Construction’s medium-frame L218 and L220 skid steers and C227 compact track loader feature ISM diesel four-cylinder turbocharged and after-cooled engines as well as HPCR fuel-system designs and electronic controls.

The manufacturer’s 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, with a 9.6-percent torque boost. Compared with the L215 model it replaces, the L216 boasts an increased operating lift capacity of 1,600 pounds and an engine with an additional eight horsepower.

A hydraulic quick-coupler option is now available on both of these compact skid steers. All models in the 200 Series feature electronic engine control.
