Inside INdiana Business: Cummins to collaborate on hydrogen engines for ag equipment
Columbus-based Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) and Canada-based Buhler Industries Inc., a tractor manufacturer that operates under the Versatile brand, are planning to integrate the Cummins 15-liter hydrogen engines in Versatile’s equipment. Cummins says the collaboration, and the new powertrain technologies, are leading decarbonization efforts within the agriculture market.
Cummins engines have been exclusively used in Versatile’s four-wheel drive tractors since 1967.
“Versatile is a longstanding manufacturer in the agriculture space with a reputation for excellence in tractors,” said Ann Schmelzer, general manager of Cummins global agriculture business. “Our companies share a commitment to technology, quality and dependability for our customers. Cummins is excited to be working with Versatile as we leverage our respective strengths to create new opportunities for both companies.”
