BTB 38: 845D Carriers are Tigercat Powered
Published on: Saturday 1st November 2014
Early fuel consumption fIgures for the first LH845D harvester, which is operating in Scotland, are very encouraging. Compared to the Tier 3 C-series machines in the same application, fuel consumption is significantly lower. Production is averaging 850 tonnes per week and fuel consumption is about 20 L/h. The fuel savings more than offset the added expense of the DEF fluid which is running at 6-8% of fuel consumption.
With many thousands of hours of experience on Tigercat harvesters, operator Barry Thain is impressed with the efficiency and quiet operation of the new engine as well as the general performance of the machine.
The 845D series carriers are available in North America and Europe. The C-series Tier 3 machines will continue to be offered to all other markets.
