John Deere is leading the way in off-road engines and transmissions.
With roots several decades deep in farm equipment manufacturing, John Deere is often first thought of as a global leader in agriculture. Some overlook that we're also a worldwide leader in many other industries linked to the land — including off-highway diesel engines.
John Deere has extensive off-highway engine and drivetrain component experience. Since 1949, we've designed and manufactured more than 7 million off-highway diesel engines. We're continuously developing innovative technology solutions that meet the needs of off-highway applications — and the challenges of tough emissions standards.
Today, John Deere produces diesel engines for agriculture, construction, forestry, mining, generator drive, marine, and thousands of other applications around the world. We offer 30 kW to 448 kW (40 hp to 600 hp) industrial diesel engines and 56 kW to 559 kW (75 hp to 750 hp) marine diesel engines, as well as Funk™ drivetrain components. We're committed to providing our off-highway customers with performance, reliability, durability and emissions compliance at an economical operating cost.
Backed by a reputation of reliability and customer service, Funk™ transmissions, axles, pump drives, and planetary drives are designed to operate in a wide range of rugged off-highway conditions.
John Deere delivers an integrated drivetrain system that boosts performance, maximizes uptime, and lowers cost of operation.
All John Deere engines can use biodiesel blends. B5 blends are preferred, but concentrations up to 20 percent (B20) can be used providing the biodiesel used in the fuel blend meets the standards set by the American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM) D6751 or European Standard (EN) 14214.
