Yanmar To Introduce Tier 4 Final L-Series Diesels
Yanmar America has announced plans to introduce a Tier 4 final compliant line-up of its L-Series engine models. The L-Series are single-cylinder, air-cooled diesel engines. Both the L70 & L100 will meet Tier 4 final regulations, Yanmar said in a letter to its distributors. Key features of the L70 & L100 include: increased power; minimal or no physical size increase; drop-in replacement for most IT4 L-Series models; variable & fixed speed models will be available; and the engines will use a diesel oxidation catalyst.
The final tier 4 compliant L-Series line-up is scheduled to be available in the first quarter of 2015. Sample engines for testing and validation will be available in mid- 2014 in limited quantities, Yanmar said. More detailed information will be announced in the future.
