New Holland Agriculture presented at the Farm Progress Show the latest development in its vision for the sustainable future of farming: a concept tractor powered by methane or compressed natural gas (CNG) that reimagines the design of this machine and reveals a connected future. The brand imagines the farm of the future as being completely energy independent: a farm that produces not only food, but also the materials it needs to generate the energy it uses to run its operations and power its tractors and other machinery.
The 6-cylinder NEF engine develops 180HP, with the same power and torque as its standard diesel equivalent, with up to 30% running cost savings. In real field conditions, the methane powered concept tractor produces at least 10% lower CO2 emissions and reduces overall emissions by 80% compared to a standard diesel engine.
