To create an engine with a minimum 368 kW (500 PS) for use in a powerful standard tractor without articulated steering that complies with Tier 4 final and EU Stage IV exhaust emissions standards, the engineers at MAN based their designs on the D2676 powertrain for trucks, adapting this to meet the requirements of a tractor. The result is the first load-bearing engine for tractors with a displacement of 12.4 l. The six-cylinder in-line engine features a load-bearing oil sump and load-bearing flywheel housing, which bears the entire load from the vehicle chassis on frameless tractors.

Motivation

In recent years, tractor performance has risen due to a demand for increased productivity in the fields. With the Fendt 1000 Vario and MAN D2676 LE5xx engine, Fendt, the premium brand of the AGCO Group in agricultural engineering [ 1], sets a new power class for standard large tractors, Figure 1. Over the last 20 years, the engine performance of standard tractors has increased from around 147 kW...
