Tier 4 Emissions Regulations

Yesterday we hosted a North Florida Turf Equipment Service Technicians Association meeting training local equipment technicians on the Tier 4 diesel engine regulations. On May 11, 2004, the EPA signed the final rule introducing Tier 4 emission standards, which are phased-in over the period of 2008-2015. Starting January 1, 2014, all diesel engine turf equipment purchased must comply with these regulations. The training was held by Kreg Kinney who is a territory product support manager for John Deere. Kreg educated how John Deere is meeting these Tier 4 regulations by using a combination of advanced technologies to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions and by adding their proven exhaust filter to control particulate matter emissions. The event was sponsored by Beard Equipment.
