John Deere Power Systems (JDPS) new 13.6 L diesel (pictured above) will highlight the company’s Stage 5 compliant engine range at Intermat April 23-28 (see the April issue of Diesel Progress International for a complete look at the 13.6 L).
In developing the 13.6 L, John Deere said it adopted a “clean-sheet design” mindset and utilized proven technologies to optimize the final product, JDPS said. John Deere, among others, pioneered advanced emissions technologies for previous tiers, which were foundational for its Stage 5 ready solutions, adding that the new engine is designed to provide installation flexibility and compact packaging, allowing for easier machine integration.
JDPS will showcase its complete Stage 5 ready industrial and generator drive engines at Intermat.
“These trusted technologies provide OEMs and end-users the confidence that John Deere is offering a smooth transition to Stage 5,” said Sandrine Couasnon, manager, marketing services and sales engineering for Europe, Africa and the Middle East at John Deere Power Systems. “As John Deere is both an engine and vehicle manufacturer, we can leverage the remarkable global experience we have gained since 2011 to develop proven emissions solutions for our customers.”
The overall industrial Stage 5 lineup will offer ratings of 36 kW to more than 500 kW (48 hp to more than 670 hp) with displacements of 2.9 L through the upcoming 13.6 L.
“For this stage, manufacturers will use DPF — a technology John Deere already has more than 900 million hours of experience using in the field,” said Couasnon. This experience on hundreds of internal and external OEM applications has resulted in a tested DPF solution, increasing uptime and offering the day-to-day reliability and durability, she said.
Stage 5 aftertreatment technologies from John Deere are designed for flexible integration and offer reduced packaging and weight from previous solutions. And because the technologies are built on the same engine platform as current Stage 4 DPF solutions, the need for OEM’s to re-engineer due to hardware or mounting changes is reduced.
John Deere will also offer a complete Stage 5 ready generator drive
lineup — including ratings of 30 to 500 kVA with displacements of 2.9 L through the new 13.6 L. JDPS will also expand its non-EGR engine
generator drive lineup to include a 4.5 L EWS engine, which serves both the 80 kVA and 100 kVA markets. With the addition of the new 13.6 L engine, John Deere’s lineup will soon expand to 500 kVA and also offers dual frequency, 50 Hz and 60 Hz.
The 2.9 L through the 13.5 L engines will receive the Stage 5 certifications prior to the regulation date, while the 4.5L EWS and 13.6 L engines will be certified prior to production.
