G-Series wheeled harvesters consume 16% less fuel per produced cubic meter than the E-series. This meant 60,000 tonnes less carbon dioxide emissions in 2021 alone. The impact is equivalent to replacing over 35,000 combustion engine cars with electric cars.
The first regulations for new nonroad diesel engines over 37 kW (50 hp) began in 1996 when John Deere launched PowerTech™, a new breed of engines that met Tier 1/Stage I emissions regulations. Since then, several tiers and stages have been developed to meet tightened regulations.
Iceland is a large island with rugged landscape formed by volcanic eruptions over the country’s history. Landsnet’s maintenance crew packs into a big four-by-four drive vehicle and heads to a high-voltage power line on the mountains east of the city of Reykjavik.
