Diesel Equipment Vital to the Agricultural Sector

Jul. 27, 2022

U.S. agriculture is one of the most productive and economically valuable in the world; higher yields in less time and with fewer inputs, thanks to advances in the machinery and equipment used to plant, harvest, and tend the land. Today, diesel engines power most of the agricultural equipment( Farm Equipment, Trucks for Transportation, Agricultural Revolution, etc. in the United States and around the world that is necessary to grow and harvest crops and deliver them to market or for processing and then ultimate delivery to consumers.

In the United States, diesel engines power more than two-thirds of all farm equipment, transporting 90 percent of its produce and pumping one-fifth of its water. Ninety-six percent of the large trucks that transport agricultural products to railroad hubs and warehouses are powered by diesel engines. The freight locomotives, marine inland grain barges and ocean-going vessels that transport these products to domestic and international markets use 100 percent diesel fuel.

FAWDE Agricultural Machinery Engine

(For agricultural harvesters and equipment, FAWDE offers a wide range of heavy-duty engines, all of which are suitable to meet the specific needs of the agricultural industry. Whether your operation relies on harvester engines or any other application, the combination of long service intervals and rugged construction will ensure reliable uptime during the long, stressful hours of the harvest season. For many agricultural applications, the main requirement is continuous uptime. Many machines sit idle or are rarely used until harvest time. Then, with equipment working 24/7 for up to three months, uptime is a guarantee of productivity. the FAWDE diesel engine has been carefully designed to withstand heavy-duty demands and will further simplify operations thanks to easy installation, improved serviceability and simple field maintenance.)

In agriculture, there is no cost-effective alternative to diesel engines with the same combination of energy efficiency, power and performance, durability, and reliability. Diesel dominates the entire "farm supply chain" - growing the product, caring for the crop (watering, fertilizing, and pesticides), harvesting the product, and even bringing it to market by truck, rail, or ship. Farm tractors, combines, irrigation pumps, and other equipment are the workhorses of an industry that is vital to our national economy and quality of life. If you want to get more information about the best agricultural machinery engine wholesale, welcome to contact us today or request a quote. 

Farms have become more mechanized and productive, shifting from gasoline-powered machinery to more efficient and powerful diesel-powered equipment. But the world is growing, and so is the demand for more food, so farms must become more productive. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, global food production would need to increase by 60 percent by 2050 to meet the projected needs of an expected 9 billion people. With more sustainable farming practices and more efficient farming techniques, more efficient and effective machinery will be needed.

One way to improve farm productivity is to invest in equipment - tractors, and harvesters - that can do more work in less time and use less fuel. Self-driving cars may soon be on city streets, but they've been around for years in agriculture. Today's tractors are connected to farmers' tablets, each other, dealers, the cloud, and the field through real-time data tracking and GPS guidance, and provide feedback on everything from ground conditions to the direction of travel. This connected, smart farming technology allows farmers to precisely pre-program equipment operations to maximize equipment and fuel utilization while minimizing soil compaction and crop loss, resulting in time savings and reduced use of fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides, and other farm inputs. 


The agricultural revolution 

Two hundred years ago, planting and harvesting were carried out with horses or other livestock. Crops were often desecrated by pests or drought because there was no effective way to deal with these situations. When the first tractor appeared, it was a large machine that had lost its power. These tractors were bulky and inefficient and soon gave way to tractors with engines that used other types of fuel.

The tractor revolutionized the entire agricultural industry. Using engine-powered tractors allowed for faster sowing and harvesting, and the ability to manage pests and water crops during droughts. This allows more farmland to be used and more food to be produced. In addition, farms do not have to maintain teams of horses, oxen or mules dedicated to the fields. The exponential increase in efficiency and crop yield

Farm equipment

Agricultural equipment and machinery are at the heart of the agricultural industry. Tractors, planters and combines are powered by engines to plant and harvest crops. Balers are used to cut and harvest hay for animals. Tractors with bush hogs are used to cut grass and to cut bushes and weeds in parts of the farm and in the ditches next to the fields.

Transport trucks 

In addition to the agricultural machinery needed to grow and harvest the crops, trucks are needed to transport these products. During harvest, semi-trailers are loaded from the combine with produce ready for market. These semi-trucks then transport the products to their intended destination.

Trucks and tractor trailers are also used to transport fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides and even water to the fields to help prepare them for planting and to keep the crop healthy while it grows. Without engine-powered machinery, this work would be extremely difficult.


FAWDE as a manufacturer and developer of diesel engines, the innovative engines were initially installed in the company's own machines - from electric plows to the company's tractors - but were then increasingly sold to other manufacturers. Today, FAWDE engines can be found in agricultural machinery from a wide range of manufacturers, especially for use in areas where high performance and efficiency are required.

From combines, tractors, and sprayers to specialist and automatic equipment, FAWDE engines are in operation all over the world.

Ranging from 2.8 liters to 19 liters, FAWDE agricultural engines are tailored for on-farm performance, with power expansion and torque backup for tractor operation (frames and structures) or the high power density required by today's combines and sprayers.

FAWDE has the right products to help you grow your business, and our engines are hard at work all over the world. From hayfields and nut orchards to vegetable farms and beyond, powering equipment for more than 20 agricultural OEMs, our global service network covers multiple countries/regions on six continents.

From the road to the farm and into the future - when you choose a diesel engine, we are at your service.
