Newton, KS – After a very successful launch at this year’s Farm Progress Show and Husker Harvest Days, Tribine Harvester LLC today announced that their 2017 production model machines would be equipped with twin 9.0-liter Cummins engines. The 2016 machines were powered by a 9.0-liter engine powering the threshing and cleaning system, and a 6.7-liter engine for the hydraulic and propulsion systems.
Per Greg Terjesen, Vice President, Sales & Marketing for the company: “This running production change will boost the TRIBINE’s continuous horsepower from 590 to 650, through two fuel efficient 9.0-liter Cummins turbocharged engines.” Like the 2016 power plant, the 2017 machines will not require the addition of DEF.
Additionally, Tribine Harvester just received the first U.S. Patent on their production machines for the new unload assist system; U.S. Patent No. 9,497,898.
