The diesel problem…

Farming shouldn’t harm the environment, the farmer, or the farm, yet on average, farming consumes 47 litres of diesel per hectare .

Diesel engines fill the atmosphere with harmful particulates and CO2 emissions while price volatility hammers farming profitability.

Farmers need tractors to supply our food. What can be done to make tractors resilient?

“This last harvest … our fuel costs
were over double what they
were the previous harvest.”

David Clark, Farmer, Canterbury NZ – April 2022

What can we do?

For the first time ever, there is a viable alternative that can match a diesel tractor on both performance and cost.

AgLocos® are powered by solid biofuel (wood and crop residue). A typical farm need only put aside 2% of its land area to produce enough solid biofuel to meet the AgLoco’s needs, indefinitely.

In an AgLoco® 150, 500kg of wood-chip provides 4 hours of run time at an average 48% load. 350kg of chip provides enough energy to crop one hectare, seed to harvest.

Resilient machinery is the future

Our complete combustion firebox emits zero smoke or sparks. This is crucial for farming in arid regions with a high fire risk.

The AgLoco® is fundamentally explosion proof, reaches full pressure in ten minutes and matches the power to weight ratio of a modern diesel.

Woodchip is a high energy return on investment fuel. Biophysical profitablity leads to economic profitability.
