New emission regulations took place in Australia on the 1st of January 2018. The new regulation requires NSW EPA licensed businesses to purchase Tier 4 Final equipment. Kobelco’s range of Tier 4 Final compliant excavators meets these requirements. Select Tier 4 Final models are also available with the Trimble-ready Earthworks System.
“Kobelco has a long history of pioneering fuel-efficient technology that balances environmental initiatives in its excavator line. This new range of Tier 4 Final compliant excavators is the next step in our pioneering evolution,” says Doug, General Manager of Sales and Marketing.
The new type of Tier IV compliant engine is fitted with a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and an SCR device to control emissions without using a diesel particulate filter (DPF). It has a large-capacity DEF/Urea tank, extending intervals between fill-ups. This results in a NOx reduction rate of about 88% compared to previous models.
“We anticipate increased demand in the Australian market for Tier 4 Final excavators. Kobelco’s independent and experienced dealer network means that when buying excavators, customers can receive and depend on quality advice and service.”
