John Deere Power Systems (JDPS) introduced extended generator drive emergency stationary power ratings for its PowerTech E 6.8L diesel engine—the first John Deere engine to carry both U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Tier 3 Emergency Stationary and European Union Stage III A certification, with dual frequency ratings of 1,800 and 1,500 rpm. The 212-kW rating at 1,800 rpm is currently available from John Deere with a PowerTech Plus 6.8L engine, but the new engine could provide genset owners a competitive advantage by offering a dual-frequency PowerTech E engine at the same power level. Before the introduction of these new ratings, the highest PowerTech E 6.8L power rating was 177 kW at 1,800 rpm. The 20% power increase from the existing PowerTech E 6.8L platform adds to the JDPS engine lineup. Genset customers can now utilize the PowerTech E platform from 60 kW to 345 kW with 2.4L, 3.0L, 4.5L, 6.8L and 9.0L displacements. (
