John Deere Power Systems at Power-Gen International
John Deere Power Systems displayed six of its diesel engines at the Power-Gen International 2008 show, held in Orlando Florida last December. The Tier 3 PowerTech Plus 6.8L and 13.5L and PowerTech E 4.5L and 9.0L were at the show, as well as the PowerTech 3.0L and the Tier 2 PowerTech 6.8L marine engine.
The PowerTech E 4.5L and 9.0L engines are recent additions to the John Deere lineup of 60-Hz gen-set engines. While these lower-cost models offer Tier 3 emissions compliance, they also provide an alternative for customers in regions where low sulfur fuels are not mandated.
"Gen-set customers have a broad range of options to choose from with the full lineup of John Deere generator-drive engines," said Doug Laudick, manager of product planning for JDPS. "John Deere engines - with their many choices of displacement, power and level of technology - allow customers to select the model that is just right for their generator application."
The full lineup of John Deere generator-drive engines includes non-emissions certified; European Union Stage II; and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Tier 1, 2, 3 and Interim Tier 4 models ranging from 2,4 l - 13,5 l of displacement and covering gen-set ratings from 32 kVA - 513 kVA.
John Deere Power Systems manufactures and markets 40 hp to 600 hp industrial diesel engines and 75 hp to 610 hp marine diesel engines, as well as drivetrain components for use in a variety of off-highway applications.
