For several years Bobcat has been working hard to ensure our products are compliant to the required federal emission standards for non-road equipment. Rest assured, this discipline will certainly carry on into the future. Emission standards, such as interim Tier 4 and Tier 4, will bring changes to the way that many machines release engine exhaust into the atmosphere. This clean diesel technology will greatly reduce the levels of harmful emissions such as particulate matter (PM) and Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) that enter the air and will improve air quality and public health for generations to come.
The U.S. government, through their EPA & Clean Air Act, has provided an opportunity through Tier 4 that promotes a sustainable environment and healthy life to future generations so they have a chance to carry on what has been built and left to them. Take a look at the time line leading up to Tier 4.
For several years, Bobcat machines have been changing to meet emissions standards. Review the tiers and requirements.
Future engine advancements and after-treatment systems will be common in many interim Tier 4 and Tier 4 compliant machines. See the Tier 4 clean diesel technologies.
Bobcat has compiled many resources to help you learn more about Tier 4. Link to other Tier 4 information.
