John Deere announces new Stage V ready engines


John Deere Power Systems has announced its line up of Stage V ready engines to meet the recently implemented European Union (EU) Stage V emissions regulations.

Leveraging new catalyst technologies, emissions control calibrations and next generation after-treatment solutions, John Deere PowerTech engines will deliver greater package flexibility and offer easier installation over previous John Deere engines.

The engines are optimized for increased torque response, low-speed torque, fluid efficiency, and provide responsive power at higher altitudes. The lineup includes engine displacements of 2.9L, 4.5L, 6.8L, 9.0L and 13.5L with ratings of 36 – 448 kW (48 – 600 hp).

“John Deere is committed to helping OEMs through every step of the application process,” said Martin Ryley, manager, marketing services and sales engineering Europe, Africa and Middle East and John Deere Power Systems. “We are well positioned to transfer our experience from various applications and operating conditions directly to our customers, giving them peace of mind. OEMs, regardless of location, are best served through timely and strategic preparation, and John Deere is ready to help them identify and implement the best solutions for their business.”

OEMs will benefit from the continual product improvements and advancements John Deere is making by retaining the same engine performance in a reduced package size. John Deere achieved reduced package sizes with next generation aftertreatment solutions that provide up to a 39% reduction in size and 57% reduction in weight. Ryley added that to achieve Stage V emissions levels for engines in the 19 kW to 560 kW power band, manufacturers will have to use DPF technology.

“John Deere has been employing DPF technology since Interim Tier 4/Stage III B, resulting in more than 425 million hours of field experience,” Ryley said. “We have demonstrated and proven the use of DPF technology in our engines for many internal and external off-highway applications, and will continually refine our system to make enhancements that strengthen application flexibility for OEM customers.”

John Deere Power Systems has extensive experience with the development and integration of DPF technology in both John Deere and OEM equipment through Interim Tier 4/Stage III B and Final Tier 4/Stage IV implementation. OEMs new to the technology will be able to leverage the John Deere experience as they transition to Stage V.

“Our experience with DPF technology clearly sets a benchmark in the industry that positions John Deere as a leader capable of helping customers seamlessly transition to Stage V,” Ryley said. “That depth of experience extends throughout our distributor network and with all John Deere service dealers, giving us a distinct advantage.”

For OEM customers developing applications not impacted by Stage V regulations, John Deere continues to offer its Integrated Emissions Control system in various configurations.
