Electrified RoGator

AGCO RECENTLY built a prototype RoGator with a 650v generator to power motors that drive the wheels. Called the ElectRoGator, the vehicle is based on a RoGator 1386 high-clearance applicator and is equipped with a 311-hp engine. The electric-drive system saves 20% in fuel and results in 30% more power to the ground. Machinery manufacturers like AGCO are exploring electric systems to take the place of hydraulics and run auxiliary systems like fans and air conditioning. See video of the machine at
