Development of tractor engines in the past twenty years

Stirnimann, Roger; Engelmann, Danilo

Abstract (englisch):
Since 1990 years, EU legislation has also been applicable to non-road vehicles, including tractors used in the agricultural sector. As a result of the stepwise introduction of exhaust gas EU emission Stages I to IV, emissions of particle mass and nitrogen oxides, the main pollutants of diesel engines, in the middle and upper power classes have been reduced by about 95 %. This could only be achieved by the intensive further development of both engine and exhaust gas technologies. HAFL and KIT explain the development and some underlying technical relationships in this sector, with a classical tractor diesel engine being used as an example.
