Future proof power solutions from Barrus at Hillhead


Barrus will be showcasing the latest portfolio of power solutions from John Deere Power Systems at Hillhead 2016 on June 28-30 in Derbyshire in the UK.

The focus will be on emission compliant engines that have been designed with future legislation in mind. Three Final Tier 4 engines will be displayed including the PowerTech PVS 6.8-liter, PowerTech EWX 2.9-liter and the PowerTech PSX 13.5-liter plus the John Deere FT4 Integrated Emissions Control System elements.

John Deere Industrial Constant-Speed (ICS) engines offer a cost-effective alternative for many OEM applications. A power unit on display equipped with a Stage III A, 4.5-liter engine will demonstrate a simple solution.

John Deere combines the best available engine technologies to enhance the customer experience while meeting the more stringent emissions regulations of FT4. The John Deere Integrated Emissions Control system technology configurations are tailored to meet Final Tier 4/Stage IV emissions regulations and customer requirements within each power range.

John Deere’s approach to emission control is proven and has led to a DPF (diesel particulate filter) solution that is capable of complying with the requirements concerning Stage V emissions.

One of the significant impacts expected of Stage V will be the introduction of a particle number (PN) limit for engines in the 19-560kW power band, which will necessitate the use of DPF technology by OEMs.

“John Deere has been employing DPF technology since Interim Tier 4/Stage IIIB so Final Tier 4 engines that are already in use and equipped with a DPF will need no further modifications whatsoever to comply with the proposed 2019 EU Stage V regulation which provides original equipment manufacturers with the benefit of a one installation advantage,” commented John Day, general manager for the Industrial Division, E P Barrus.

In surface mining and quarry operations, John Deere diesel engines offer the same advantages that have made the brand famous in the construction sector: uninterrupted power, ultimate reliability and low cost of ownership. They are already driving crushers, excavators, loaders, dumpers, gensets and air compressors worldwide.
