New Holland 200 Series Skid Steer, Compact Track Loaders

Oct. 13, 2015

New Holland Construction 200 Series skid steers and compact track loaders (CTLs) feature new, more powerful engines and Tier 4-Final emissions control technologies tailored for each model.

The company’s compact offerings, traditionally more popular in landscaping than in construction, are receiving boosts in power and capability, New Holland says, so they can still work in the same spaces but perform like larger machines.

The large-frame L230 skid steer and C238 CTL meet Tier 4-Final emissions standards with SCR technology and DEF.

According to New Holland, the L230 and C238 engines benefit from significantly better fuel economy and more power and torque because of SCR technology—one of the principal benefits of SCR is that it does not place any additional demands on the cooling package, which means that zero power is diverted to cool the exhaust gas.

The L228 and C232 feature FPT diesel four cylinder turbocharged and aftercooled engines with high-pressure common-rail (HPCR) fuel system design and electronic controls. These engines meet the Tier 4-Final emissions mandate with a maintenance-free DOC-only solution which eliminates the need for a DPF.

New Holland Construction’s medium-frame L218 and L220 skid steers and C227 CTL feature ISM diesel four-cylinder turbocharged and aftercooled engines with an HPCR fuel system design and electronic controls. These engines also meet Tier 4 Final emissions with a maintenance-free DOC-only solution and no DPF.

The company says medium-frame units are frequently used in rental yards and in fleets with multiple operators, and the DOC-only solution offers these customers a greater level of maintenance convenience than cooled EGR with DPF technology.

With a 21 percent higher peak torque rise at 1,800 rpm, the L220 has a 12 percent increase in horsepower from 60 to 67 gross horsepower. The L218 remains at 60 gross horsepower, but has 7 percent more torque for additional power and performance.

The small-frame L213 and L216 compact skid steers meet Tier 4 Final status using EGR and DPF technology. The L213 skid steer features a 2.2-liter ISM engine. With this new engine, the gross horsepower increases from 46 to 49 horsepower with a 9.6-percent torque boost. Compared to the L215 model it replaces, the L216 has an increased operating lift capacity of 1,600 pounds. Engine horsepower has been increased by 8 horsepower. Additionally, a hydraulic quick coupler option is now available on both compact skid steers.

All models in the 200 Series feature electronic engine control. CAN-messaging capabilities allow the operator to monitor and store diagnostic data points, including hydraulic oil temperature, fuel rail pressure and fuel tank level.

The medium-frame skid steer loaders feature the patented vertical-lift Super Boom design for forward dump height and reach, and a 53-degree dump angle. This lets operators empty the bucket faster, increasing cycle times and productivity, the company says.

The self-leveling bucket feature on the five models with the Super Boom design allows attachments to maintain the preset location throughout the lift cycle.
