Because stricter norms of emission of hazardous substances are being introduced every few years, machinery manufacturers are also forced to introduce various modifications to reduce emissions. To this end, systems aimed at optimising the process of fuel combustion and reducing the amount of hazardous compounds are being applied. Three tractors used in agriculture, with various functional solutions, were examined in this study. The effect of various systems on reduction of hazardous emissions and fuel consumption was determined. The tests were conducted during the ploughing with a 4-bottom swivel plough. The effect of the selective reduction (SCR) system with AdBlue liquid, the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system, the particulate filter, the number of valves per cylinder and the type of a turbocharger in the engine’s inlet system were determined. It was observed during the tests that there were differences in fuel consumption and emissions depending on the constructional solutions applied in the tractors.
