Case IH ships first Tier 4 Interim tractor

Christopher Goodfellow - 10 December 2010

Agricultural equipment provider Case IH has shipped its first tractor compliant with the Environmental Protection Agency's Tier 4 Interim emissions standards, the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) equipped Magnum Series tractor.

Tom Dean, High Horsepower Tractor Marketing Manager at Case IH North America, said: "Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is a game changer. It is the best answer for farmers to be ready for government-mandated emissions standards now and in the future. Case IH leadership on this technology is a competitive advantage that positions us to capture more sales with North American producers."

The new Magnum range achieves 10% savings in operating costs when compared to previous Case IH models, including the cost of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) which is required by Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology.

The vehicle meets the Environmental Protection Agency's new emissions legislation for off-road vehicles which comes into force in January 2011. The exhaust standards require emissions of particle matter and NOx be reduced by about 90% on Tier 3 standards. Full Tier 4 emissions standards or Tier 4b come into force in 2014.
