Volvo Construction Equipment will make available a Tier 4i/Stage IIIb conversion kit to facilitate its customers’ ability to resell machines outside of the United States and Europe. From the second quarter of 2014, Volvo CE customers will be able to have their Tier 4/Stage IIIb machines fitted with a special engine conversion kit, enabling them to sell machines in countries where low-sulfur diesel fuel isn’t available.

The conversion kit protects Volvo engines against high sulfur levels.

“We know that some of our customers export their used machines to countries outside of the U.S. or EU and must operate on a different type of fuel,” said Alan Berger, vice president product platforms. “We want to assure customers that there will still be a market for Tier 4/Stage IIIb-compliant machines abroad.”
