I’m in Fargo to try out some Bobcat equipment. But in between digging holes and working in the forest, I had a chance to speak with Mike Fitzgerald,a product specialist with the company, about Interim Tier IV. Here’s a tip on what you need to do to be ready.
“Something they will want to pay attention to is making sure they have clean fuels for the machine. We’ve always recommended having clean fuels, but today with these electronically injected engines, we want to make sure they have filters on their transfer tank either in the pickup or on their trailer where they are moving that to get clean fuel into the machine. We have a finer filtering fuel filter on this machine, so it makes sure the particles don’t get into the engine. Again. if you put clean fuel into that then you don’t have to worry about plugging that filter at a premature time frame.”
Stay tuned to future issues of L&L to find out what else you can expect from these changes.
