AMAZONE - USA
New exhaust gas level Tier IV engine
With this new engine, AMAZONE relies on exhaust gas recirculation with a diesel oxidation catalyst and diesel particulate filter – all of which help in saving the environment. The diesel particulate filter is continuously regenerating during operation. The SCR catalytic converter reduces, with the aid of a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) injection, the levels of nitrogen oxide. The new 20 litre DEF tank is positioned at the side of the 230 litre diesel tank. The DEF consumption amounts to approximately 2.5 % of the fuel consumption, meaning that the DEF tank only requires refilling every 3 or 4 diesel tank fills.
