Nebraska Tractor Test Lab Crowns a New King of Fuel Efficiency

17.03.2010 11:51 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) The new John Deere 8320R surpassed the 8430 in two NTTL tests that closely represent typical large row-crop tractor use: Power Takeoff Performance (PTO) at Rated Engine Speed, and 75 Percent of Pull at Reduced Engine Speed.* These test results prove that no other comparable tractor — green or otherwise — performs as efficiently as the new 8320R. The John Deere 8320R delivered 18.93 horsepower-hours per gallon (hp-hr/gal.) while producing 274.37 PTO hp. Similar to your trucks miles-per-gallon (mpg) rating, hp-hr/gal. refers to the amount of horsepower produced per gallon of diesel used per hour. A higher hp-hr/gal. number indicates the tractors efficiency at producing power with less fuel. Therefore, a higher number means better fuel economy. In this test, the 8320R consumed less diesel per horsepower than the 8430, making it the most fuel-efficient tractor in its class. The John Deere 8320R won this contest by delivering 17.84 hp-hr/gal. and producing 186.66 drawbar hp. This test closely represents typical fieldwork. The 8320R uses less fuel than any other comparable tractor when operating at 75 percent of pull at reduced engine speed and does not require the use — nor the expense — of a second fluid, such as diesel exhaust fluid (urea). The John Deere 8320R, along with the entire 8R/8RT Series, features the John Deere PowerTech Plus 9.0 L engine and employs state-of-the-art technology such as cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and a variable geometry turbocharger. This engine design was introduced in 2005 and quickly proved to be the most fuel-efficient solution for meeting Tier 3 emissions regulations. These latest NTTL results continue to prove that the cooled EGR approach is the best solution for meeting emissions regulations and has the lowest daily operating cost when compared to other tractors that require the use of diesel exhaust fluid. Looking forward to Interim Tier 4 emissions regulations, which take effect in 2011, John Deere will continue to use the fuel-efficient, cooled EGR approach and add an exhaust filter. This solution is simpler and easier to maintain when compared to selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems. In addition, cooled EGR is field proven and is part of an integrated vehicle design. John Deere was the first manufacturer to widely commercialize off-highway Tier 3 cooled-EGR diesel engines and has a proven record of reliability and fuel economy.
