Thanks for the posting. One thing I caught was Larger tires,,,, you could tell they were bigger. Looked like the ones off the 2320 ??
Okay, good. I've had my 1026r for about three weeks, I was going to be annoyed if the new model had bigger tires.Sorry my mistake,,,, Beat me with the wet noodles....
Mine is almost 4 mo and I would've been mad.Okay, good. I've had my 1026r for about three weeks, I was going to be annoyed if the new model had bigger tires.
I noticed the decal discrepancy as well.I saw both a 1025R and 1026R decal at different points in the video. Also the 1023E had a Green fuel cap. I've seen green on pickup trucks, but normally off highway is red isn't it? Well that or just plain black. At one point didn't it say "Optional" reverse implement operation? I saw the guy pull the PTO switch so I guess the qualifies. I'm super glad my 1026R doesn't have that.....
Would be tough to have after treatment without electronics. How would it clean the filters?The biggest new feature of the new 2R series will be new exhaust emissions equipment. :thumbsdown: Either electronic engine controls or exhaust after-treatment or both. Anything over 25HP will have to meet tier 4 EPA emissions requirements. Hence the de-rating of the 1026R to 25HP and the new model number 1025R.
The NoX cat and PM filters need electronics to regenerate. These dont function like a gasoline cat.Catalytic converters and such don't require computers. But they certainly will be adding more stuff than I'd like to see under the hood of a compact tractor. Have you seen any of the tier 4 utility or ag tractors? Tons of emissions stuff there. Of course the requirements are tougher to meet in those HP classes.

Right the 19KW would be approximately 25.5 or 26 hp so this matches the over 25 hp starting point. The catalytic converters you are referring to on older diesels, example old California 12v's and 2004.5-2007 Cummins, were not NOx or DPF catalysts. They functioned as a DOC to remove unburned fuel, CO, HC and CO2 primarily. You are correct that they did not require a regen but they did not require the regen cycle because they were not filtering NOx and particulates. Tier 4 is concentrated on these and the only way for NOx and DPF filters to clean themself is to regenerate using injected diesel fuel in the exhaust stroke. I'm just saying this would be tough to do without electronics. So if the linked article is close we would have EGR, and two exhaust filters. I can say that EGR really makes your oil black and you should wear gloves when changing oil because the soot is tough to get off your hands otherwise.The article refers to engines over 19kw concerning exhaust after-treatment. Catalytic converters have been used on diesels for many years. (Although some were unsuccessful) My old truck had a kitty on it. It sure didn't have all the fancy computer controlled exhaust after-treatment that today's trucks have.
I am only speculating in earlier posts as to what is on the new 2R series. We know they will have to comply somehow.
