Perkins has unveiled the first of its engines to meet the forthcoming Tier 4 Final emissions legislation. Among the models on display at Intermat is the 7 litre 1206F-E70TA, which can produce up to 255 kW.
Kohler Engines and its Italian sister company Lombardini have launched a new generation of 40-100 kW diesel engines that will meet the emission requirements of Stage IIIB/Tier IV Final regulations without the use of a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
New emission laws for diesel engines come into force in Europe and the US at the start of next year. What will they mean in terms of price, performance and fuel efficiency for contractors in these regions?
