Emissions regulation, cannot be applied to overhang and half-track tractor engines

At a meeting held in 21st of June at Enovitis in Campo the technical difficulty of installing bulky exhaust devices for treating emissions on specialist vineyard and fruit orchard tractors became clear. Changing the built of these machines to make them capable of mounting them means compromising their functions and it would be unthinkable to modify planting distances by expanding the row widths. A request for an amendment of the regulation for the specific sector is being prepared
