New Holland Construction take productivity to the next level with Tier 4 Final engine technology
New Holland Construction’s 200 Series machines will now benefit from three Tier 4 Final compliant models, including the new L216 skid-steer loader, and a full offering of fuel-efficient Tier 4 Interim engine configurations.
The two mid-size models of the New Holland Construction skid-steer loader range meet the stringent Tier 4 Final emission standards with a diesel oxidation catalyst-only solution that delivers considerable benefits in fuel saving, performance and maintenance convenience.
The L220 model gets tougher with a four-cylinder, turbocharged 67hp engine, which delivers a 12% increase of horsepower, and it is tuned for a robust 22% boost in peak torque to 208Nm and a rated operating capacity of 905kg.
The Tier 4 Final L218 model remains at 60hp of gross power but with a 7% increase in peak torque to 183Nm and a 818kg operating capacity. Using the proven DOC-only exhaust after-treatment system, these machines provide greater convenience and maintenance-free operation with no requirement for filter regeneration or replacement.
The L218 and the L220 skid-steer loaders incorporate the fuel-efficient High Pressure Common Rail (HPCR) injection design typically used in larger construction equipment. The HPCR ensures extremely high injection precision and allows higher torque output and more useful power from every drop of fuel. Both models also feature the electronic engine control which provides superior engine efficiency and enhanced responsiveness to operator commands.
The New Holland mid-frame line-up also includes the C227 compact track loaders which are powered by a 74hp, turbocharged FPT Industrial engine complying with Tier 4 Interim emission standards. These radial-lift compact track loaders provide excellent pushing and digging force thanks to a rated operating capacity of 1,225kg and a bucket breakout force of 32.3kN.
The New Holland L216 skid-steer loader with radial lift is the Tier 4 Final evolution of the L215 model and takes the lead in its category by providing 188Nm of peak torque, with a 27% increase compared with the previous generation. The four-cylinder, turbocharged 60hp engine with an upgraded 2.2-litre displacement of the L216 skid-steer loader delivers 15% more horsepower and boosts up to 725kg of operating capacity. With the auxiliary hydraulic flow, the hydraulic power of the L216 model is boosted from 59 litres/min up to 70 litres/min, providing significant advantages in terms of speed and productivity when operating hydraulic attachments.
The New Holland compact skid-steer loader range is completed by the L213 radial-lift model, now powered with an improved 2.2-litre, Tier 4 Interim compliant engine with 49hp (gross). This unit develops a 10% torque rise - up to 143Nm - and it is designed for even more efficiency and reliability thanks to the new loader arm stops that allow the loader arm to lean directly into the chassis for superior digging and pushing strength.
In the high-end segment of their product range, the L230 skid-steer loader and the C238 compact track loader now fully meet the Tier 4 Interim emission regulations with the new turbocharged 90hp engine designed by sister company FPT Industrial. The 3.4-litre engine delivers torque of 383Nm at a low engine speed of 1,400 rev/min, with a 13% increase in pushing power. These machines are particularly effective in the toughest applications that require massive breakout force and demanding hydraulic-powered attachments. The L230 skid-steer loader delivers up to 1,360kg of rated operating capacity while the C238 compact track loader tips the scales at a 1,723kg.
The large-frame offering also includes the L223 skid-steer loaders powered by a Tier 4 Interim compliant, turbocharged FPT Industrial engine with 74hp. With a bucket breakout force of 32.3kN, New Holland Construction say these machines offer an efficient digging capability and allow the operators to tackle even the toughest jobs.
