Leaders in emissions compliance John Deere was one of the first marine engine manufacturers to offer a full line of diesel engines which complies with the various emissions requirements in force in Europe and the US. Our line meets the following emission standards: - European Recreational Craft Directive (2003/44/EC). - European Directive on Inland Waterways Vessels (2004/26/EC), whose standards are also recognized by the CCNR for sailing on the Rhine. - Standards set by the EPA for commercial and recreational vessels sailing in North American Waters (Tier 2). - Over 130 kW (174 hp), most of our certified marine engines can be supplied with an Engine International Air Pollution Prevention certificate (EIAPP), showing compliance with regulations set out in Annex VI of the (IMO) MARPOL convention.

Unbeatable advantages! Silence, we’re coming by! At John Deere, we continually strive to oer you optimum comfort. We design engines that go almost unnoticed, by ensuring operation without excessive vibration. his is why all the moving parts are balanced and our four-cylinder engines feature balancing shafts. he torque available at low rpms also reduces engine speed and consequently the noise level. Finally, other features, such as the cooled exhaust manifold, also play a major role in reducing noise.

Fuel efficiency It is obvious that low fuel consumption has an immediate impact on a vessel’s range and helps to keep down operating costs. Here again it is the speciďŹ c design of our combustion chamber and the introduction of electronically-controlled fuel injection that enables John Deere to ensure some of the lowest consumption levels on the market. In addition, thanks to our high torque level, our engines can be used at lower rpms for the same result and lower fuel consumption.

Accessories and options

In addition to the wide range of engines available per application we also offer a vast number of tailor-made accessories and options

Easy servicing and maintenance Even the most reliable engines require servicing from time to time. his is an essential operation that needs to be carried out easily, keeping vessel downtime to a minimum. With this in mind, the positioning of the main service points (oil drain, dipstick and ďŹ lters) to the right or left is an added advantage as it facilitates access in often cramped engine rooms. For easy maintenance, our wet sleeves can be easily replaced, without fully dismantling the engine to rebore the block. In addition to all these advantages, there are also easy replacement of connecting rod bearings and cylinder heads, maintenance-free gears and ÂŤPoly VÂť drive belts that provide more torque and also play an active role in engine service life.

The importance of torque! Designed to provide very high torque even at low speeds, John Deere engines ensure optimum speeds in all conditions. Our engines are your best bet as they provide quick SFTQPOTFBOEHSFBUnFYJCJMJUZBUBMMUJNFT heir high torque is due to the design of the dierent engine parts and, in particular, the cooled long stroke pistons, which apply a signiďŹ cant lever eect to the crankshaft. heir high performance is also due to other technologies (depending on the model), such as charge air cooling, the use of four-valve cylinder heads or even electronically-controlled fuel injection which greatly improves combustion quality.

Engines built for reliability! Put a stop to problems out at sea! Our engines are sturdy, reliable and durable! Based on our renown and expertise in commercial engines, we always select components designed for intensive use, even in harsh environments. his is the case with our engine blocks, crankshafts and forged connecting rods. No concessions either on our lubrication and cooling systems. hey are designed and sized so that the engine can perform at its best. Finally, the use of wet sleeve technology guarantees even cylinder cooling, thus preventing hot spots that could aect engine service life.
