John Deere Power Systems (JDPS) says that its new engine range will be ready for the Stage V emissions requirements. This also includes the all-new 13.6litre engine, which was designed from a clean sheet.
Key features of the new engines are high torque at low rpm, good fuel efficiency and a strong torque response. The Stage V compliant engines are also designed to deliver reliable performance at high altitudes and have capacities of 2.9litres, 4.5litres, 6.8litres, 9litres and 13.6litres, with power outputs ranging from 36 up to 500kW.
The 13.6litre engine is also said to feature an optimised design, which makes it easier to install. Other advantages of this engine include a high power density and high working efficiency, as well as low maintenance requirements.
