For agricultural harvest machines and equipment, Volvo Penta supplies a wide range of heavy-duty engines, all adapted to withstand the particular demands of the agricultural industry. No matter if your operation relies on a harvester engine or any other application, the long service intervals paired with robust durable construction will safeguard reliable uptime for the long, intense work periods during harvest season.
For many agricultural applications, the main requirement is continuous uptime. Many machines are idle or sparingly used up until harvest time. Then, the equipment is on duty 24/7 for periods of up to three months and uptime is what guarantees productivity. Volvo Penta diesel engines are engineered to withstand the heavy-duty demands and will further simplify operations thanks to easy installation, improved serviceability and simple on-site maintenance.
To maximize uptime most Volvo Penta diesel engines for agricultural applications can operate for 1,000 hours between service intervals. By using the corresponding service protocol, an approved Volvo Penta Oil Analysis and genuine Volvo Penta oil filters with the appropriate oil and fuel quality, productivity is increased, and uptime is maximized.
Volvo Penta diesel engines all share a common platform. This makes them future-proof and extremely adaptable to all needs, no matter if they are used as an agriculture engine or in any other application. An operation needing several engines benefits from the engine commonality both through the operators’ familiarity with the different engines as well as from shared service and one single contact point for accessories or parts.
Volvo Penta’s diesel engines are in operation – in agricultural applications – all over the world. Here, you can experience how a D5, 4-cylinder, 175hp engine helps power sugar cane harvesting in India.
