New Holland Construction 200 Series skid steers and compact track loaders will benefit from new, more powerful engines and Tier IV Final emissions control technology specifically tailored for each model. True to its commitment to being the Clean Energy Leader, New Holland has introduced smart solutions to meet Tier IV mandates based on operating productivity and customer needs.

“With new engines, the 200 Series will not only meet the Tier IV standards, they will also have more power and capability. They can still work in the same spaces they did before, but they will perform like a larger machine,” said Paul Wade, construction equipment product marketing manager.

Large-Frame Models Meet Tier IV Final Standards With SCR Technology

New Holland's L230 skid steer and C238 compact track loader meet Tier IV Final emissions standards with SCR technology. SCR is a cool-running, quiet system that's separate from the main engine function and does not compromise horsepower or torque. It does not interfere with engine performance but, in fact, actually improves it, according to the manufacturer. The SCR after-treatment requires an easy-to-use additive.

Due to the cutting-edge SCR system, engines benefit from significantly better fuel economy and more power and torque. One of the principal benefits of SCR technology is that it does not place any additional demands on the cooling package, which means that zero power is diverted to cool the exhaust gas.

The SCR system requires the use of AdBlue/DEF, a non-toxic water and urea solution, to neutralize the noxious nitrogen oxides found in the exhaust emissions and to turn them into harmless water and nitrogen. The addition of AdBlue contributes to fuel cost savings, even when the initial purchase price is taken into account, according to the manufacturer.

Large-Frame Models Meet Tier IV Final Standards With DOC-Only Technology

The new L228 skid steer loader and the C232 compact track loader feature an FPT diesel four cylinder turbocharged and after-cooled engines with an efficient, fuel-efficient high pressure common rail (HPCR) fuel system design and electronic controls. These engines meet the Tier IV Final emissions mandate with a maintenance-free diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC)-only solution which eliminates the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF).

Medium-Frame Models Meet Tier IV Final Standards With DOC-Only Technology

New Holland Construction's medium-frame L218 and L220 skid steers and C227 compact track loader feature ISM diesel four-cylinder turbocharged and after-cooled engines with an efficient, fuel-efficient high pressure common rail (HPCR) fuel system design and electronic controls. These engines meet the Tier IV Final emissions mandate with a maintenance-free diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC)-only solution which eliminates the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF).

“These models are frequently used in rental yards and fleets with multiple operators,” said Wade. “The DOC-only solution offers these customers a greater level of maintenance convenience than the more commonly utilized cooled exhaust gas recirculation [CEGR] with diesel particulate filter [DPF] technology.”

With a 21 percent higher peak torque rise at 1,800 rpm, the L220 has a 12 percent increase in horsepower from 60 to 67 gross hp. The L218 remains at 60 gross hp, but has 7 percent more torque for additional power and performance.

Compact Models Meet Tier IV Final Standards With CEGR/DPF

The small-frame L213 and L216 compact skid steers meet Tier IV Final status using CEGR and DPF technology. The L213 skid steer features a 2.2-L ISM engine. With this new engine, the gross horsepower increases from 46 to 49 hp. with a 9.6 percent torque boost. Compared to the L215 model it replaces, the L216 boasts an increased operating lift capacity of 1,600 lbs. Engine horsepower has been increased by 8 hp. Additionally, a hydraulic quick coupler option is now available on both of these compact skid steers.

Maximized Performance and Reliability

To maximize performance and reliability, all models in the 200 Series feature electronic engine control. CAN-messaging capabilities allow the operator to monitor and store diagnostic data points, including hydraulic oil temperature, fuel rail pressure and fuel tank level.

With the 200 Series, New Holland maintains the best-in-class forward dump height and reach with the vertical lift design that can load material to the center of trucks, finishing jobs faster. The medium-frame skid steer loaders feature the vertical lift Super Boom design, delivering superior forward dump height and reach. The 53-degree dump angle on the 200 Series skid steer loaders also is best in class. This lets operators empty the bucket faster, increasing cycle times and productivity, according to the manufacturer.

The self-leveling bucket feature on the five models with the Super Boom design allows attachments to maintain the preset location throughout the lift cycle. Customers using pallet forks or other attachments to load materials into confined spaces will appreciate the extra work they'll be able to complete with the self-leveling feature.
