Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) is now offering the first in a series of engine conversion kits that allow Volvo customers to resell their Tier 4i/Stage IIIB machines outside of the US and EU - regardless of when the machine was purchased.
A Tier 4i/Stage IIIB engine conversion kit from Volvo CE enables Volvo customers to resell their used Tier 4i/Stage IIIB machines or use in less-regulated countries where high-sulphur fuels are used. The first kits are now available for the company´s A25-A40 articulated haulers (fitted with D11, D13 and D16 engines) and the L150-L250 wheel loaders (D13 engine). Early next year, kits will also be available for the EC340-EC480 excavators (D13 engine). Throughout 2015, conversion kits will become available for Volvo machines equipped with medium-duty engines (D4-D8). ¨The conversion kit adjusts the engine system so it can handle high-sulphur fuels up to 10,000 ppm,¨explained Alan Berger, Vice President of product platforms at Volvo CE.
