New Holland Construction 200 Series skid steers and compact track loaders will benefit from new, more powerful engines and Tier 4 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 4 mandates based on operating productivity and customer needs.
“With new engines, the 200 Series will not only meet the Tier 4 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,” says Paul Wade, Construction Equipment Product Marketing Manager.
Large-frame models meet Tier 4 Final standards with SCR technology
New Holland’s L230 skid steer and C238 compact track loader meet Tier 4 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. The SCR aftertreatment requires an easy-to-use additive.
Thanks 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 significant fuel cost savings, even when the initial purchase price is taken into account.
Large-Frame models meet Tier 4 Final standards with DOC-only technology
The new L228 skid steer loader and the C232 compact track loader feature 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 4 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 4 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 4 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,” says 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% higher peak torque rise at 1,800 rpm, the L220 has a 12% increase in horsepower from 60 to 67 gross hp. The L218 remains at 60 gross hp, but has 7% more torque for additional power and performance.
Compact models meet Tier 4 Final standards with CEGR/DPF
The small-frame L213 and L216 compact skid steers meet Tier 4 Final status using CEGR and DPF technology. The L213 skid steer features a 2.2-liter ISM engine. With this new engine, the gross horsepower increases from 46 to 49 hp with a 9.6% 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 patented vertical lift Super Boom design, delivering superior forward dump height and reach. The 53-degree dump angle on the 200 Series skid steer loaders is also best in class. This lets operators empty the bucket faster, increasing cycle times and productivity.
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.
