Don't think they are out yet, the ones we have on order that were supposed to be delivered to the dealership in September have moved to 1Q 2015. Haven't heard why but will update when I know more.

from what i understand they are still hung up waiting on tier 4 final approval. i've ran a couple around a parking lot and on a pto dyno. the torque curve numbers are pretty impressive.

The same engine is in the two combines, they are marked final tier IV, why wouldn't they meet it in the tractor?

True the engine has been in the combine, but from my understanding that engine was not T4 final because it didn't have to be until 2014. Sounds like it still might not be t4 final. Just going off what our area rep and product specialist has given us for reasons.

Perhaps your rep was talking about the V12 in the 800 series since its a new motor?

The 7 cyl is final in the Gleaner combines now and we have some of them. Maybe still they have to check the engines in their applications.

The engines have had to be modified to go in the tracked Challengers, they have been shaking themselves to pieces so they are not the same engines.

Not sure why Agco launch a range of machines then don't actually release any for a year, they did this with the 6600 series masseys
