Stage V.
  • John Deere has billions of hours of field experience with off-highway diesel engine technologies and launched many of its engines ahead of EPA and EU deadlines, and is ready to meet Stage V emissions regulations. Our engineers continue to employ a global network of technical resources and the latest technology to lower emissions while improving performance and fluid efficiency.
Series turbocharger
  • Air is first drawn into the low-pressure turbocharger and compressed to a higher pressure. The compressed air is then drawn into the high-pressure turbocharger, where the air is further compressed. The high-pressure air is then routed through a charge air cooler and into the engine's intake manifold. By splitting the work between two turbochargers, both can operate at peak efficiency and at slower rotating speeds — lowering stress on turbocharger components and improving reliability. Series turbocharging delivers more boost pressure than single turbocharger configurations, which results in higher power density, improved low-speed torque, and improved high-altitude operation.
Cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR)
  • EGR cools and mixes measured amounts of cooled exhaust gas with incoming fresh air to lower peak combustion temperatures, thereby reducing Nox.
High-pressure common-rail (HPCR)
  • The HPCR fuel system provides variable common-rail pressure and high injection pressures. It also controls fuel injection timing and provides precise control for the start, duration, and end of injection.
Air-to-air aftercooled
  • This is the most efficient method of cooling intake air to help reduce engine emissions while maintaining low-speed torque, transient response time, and peak torque. It enables an engine to meet emissions regulations with better fuel economy and the lowest installed costs.
4-valve cylinder head
  • The 4-valve cylinder head provides excellent airflow resulting in excellent low-speed torque and transient response.
Rear gear train
  • The engine features a rear gear train, which produces excellent direct power and options up to two rear aux drives for a total of 902 Nm (665 lb-ft) max torque providing quiet operation.
John Deere electronic engine controls
  • Premium software integrates with equipment or vehicles to reduce engineering and installation costs.
  • The John Deere controls offer better diagnostic capabilities, enabling future prognostics, and the ability to target the source of engine performance issues.
Big-engine durability
  • The bedplate design provides structural benefits for extreme durability and is built for 20,000 hours of operation with the ability to be re-built two times.
  • Replaceable (wet) cylinder liners
  • Full flow engine-mounted oil cooler
  • Up to 500-hour oil change
Serviceability and repairability
  • Designed with the ease of service and repair in mind, with Hydraulic Lash Adjustment (HLAs), which offers a maintenance free valvetrain, eliminating the need to reset lash.
Additional features
  • Engine-mounted fuel filter
  • Low-pressure fuel system with electrical transfer pump and "auto-prime" feature
  • Optional rear PTO
