Pantera 4502 according to new emission standard 4
The heart of the Amazone Pantera 4502 self propelled machine is the proven 6-cylinder Deutz engine with a power rating of 160 kW/218 HP. The high-torque in-line engine with turbocharger and intercooling for highest performance requirements, provides – thanks to its intelligent engine management in ECO mode – minimal fuel consumption. If, however, more power is required, for instance when working on steep slopes, then the power mode is available to the driver that enables him to obtain maximum power at 2,200 min-1.
As from the new model year, the Pantera will meet emission standard 4 (Tier 4 final). With regard to the topic of post exhaust emissions treatment, AMAZONE relies on the exhaust gas recirculation with a diesel oxidation catalyst and diesel particulate filter. During operation, the diesel particulate filter is regenerated continuously and in this way, and contrary to the 3B engine, it does not require an additional burner. With the aid of Diesel-Exhaust-Fluid (DEF) injection, the SCR catalyst reduces the level of nitrogen oxide emitted. The new 20 litre DEF tank is positioned at the side of the 230 litre diesel tank. The DEF consumption amounts to approximately 2.5 % of the fuel consumption, meaning that DEF only requires refilling every 3 or 4 tank fills.
Apart from the changes to the exhaust system, additional alterations and improvements are also introduced with this model change. The external distinguishing features are, in addition to the DEF tank and the new tank access ladder on the right machine side, the new LED rear lights. The new Pantera models can also be equipped with LED work lights instead of the standard Halogen lights if desired.
Furthermore, the suction capacity of the Pantera is increased by 20 % up to a maximum of 600 l/min with the aid of an injection system. In this way, the Pantera is filled in less than 10 min.
To aid headland filling, the bowser fill port has been relocated forwards into the storage compartment under the cab and comes as standard now with automatic fill stop. This automatically prevents both, via the suction hose and now when filling under pressure, any potential overfilling of the machine.
