John Deere adds power to lineup while meeting new EPA regulations
According to Darrin Treptow, manager of worldwide marketing for John Deere Power Systems, the new engine becomes the most powerful in a lineup that meets U.S. Environmental Protection Agency final Tier 4 emissions regulations without the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
"Since the introduction of our constant speed generator drive engines without DPFs earlier this year, we have been working to implement this solution in our generator drive engine lineup," Treptow, said. "With this addition we are able to offer our customers both the power ratings and performance they need for their power-gen applications."
Treptow added that the space-saving package also gives original equipment manufacturers more installation options for prime power generator set applications. As with the other engines in the no-DPF generator drive lineup, this new 13.5-liter engine employs a John Deere Integrated Emissions Control system with cooled exhaust gas recirculation, a diesel oxidation catalyst and a selective catalytic reduction system.
"Our engines are designed to perform reliably in a variety of operating conditions, making them ideal for prime power solutions," Treptow said.
