GLOBAL TUN­ING & PER­FOR­MANCE

Countryman - - DOWERIN GWN7 MACHINERY FIELD DAYS -

Global Tun­ing & Per­for­mance owner Matthew Grif­fits says main­tain­ing the health of on-farm ma­chin­ery can make a world of dif­fer­ence in terms of fuel sav­ings and pro­duc­tiv­ity gains.

At the Dow­erin GWN7 Ma­chin­ery Field Days, Mr Grif­fits was keen to high­light the ben­e­fits of remap­ping en­gine con­trol units, with his com­pany help­ing to tai­lor agri­cul­tural ma­chin­ery to farm­ers’ needs.

Mr Grif­fits said cus­tom tun­ing could op­ti­mise an en­gine’s ECU to in­crease power and torque, lower the op­er­at­ing and pyro tem­per­a­tures, im­prove throt­tle re­sponse and power de­liv­ery and aid fuel ef­fi­ciency.

“In large trac­tors, we’ve seen up to 40 litres an hour in fuel sav­ings,” he said.

“Py­ro­elec­tric har­vesters have also de­creased run­ning tem­per­a­tures by up to 100 de­grees, with sig­nif­i­cant fuel sav­ings per hectare.”

Mr Grif­fits said Global Tun­ing & Per­for­mance had a na­tion­wide dealer net­work, with its tech­ni­cians able to pro­vide on-farm ECU remap­ping ser­vices.
