    We were told, at a sales meeting, that the 4wd version is coming in the 55 and 65 HP Tier 4, but I do not know just how soon. The tier 4 will no longer be called the 25 series, and will be the 4500 series. (4545, 4555, 4565, in 2 and 4 wd)

    Not on a Mahindra. None of the Mahindra's will have a DPF to meet tier 4 emissions. A big plus for Mahindra, added value over the competition.

(1100 plus degrees) This is a PIA to have to stop and do this, and at 1100 degrees a possible fire hazzard in some conditions. Mahindra redesigned their engines from the ground up to burn the diesel fuel more completely, thus not needing the particulate filter to meet the tier 4 emission specs. This fact should be a real added value for the Mahindra customer.

    Why do I have images of a burned out tractor hulk sitting in middle of a burned field in west Texas in August or September running through my mind?

    DPFs work and do what they are designed to do for the most part. It's when they don't that they really become a headache. Is Mahindra using EGR to meet emissions?
