Helping you – and your engine – breathe easier.

The quality of the oil filters you fit has a direct effect on how well your John Deere engine performs. So next time you change a filter, insist on the best: genuine John Deere filters.

Oil filters: the inside story
Other filters may look the same on the outside – but inside, there can be a world of difference. From the quality of the filter material to the sealing rings and spring tensioners that ensure top performance, John Deere gives you the quality your tractor deserves. So don’t risk your valuable equipment unnecessarily. If it doesn’t say John Deere on the label, the filters you’re looking at weren’t made solely for John Deere equipment.

Fit and forget
Only genuine John Deere filters come with peace of mind fitted as standard.

  • Long lasting performance – right through to the next service interval
  • Outstanding efficiency – custom-built for your equipment
  • Maximum protection – for you and your investment

See for yourself
As you’ll see below, many so-called ‘bargain’ filters cut corners to make you think they’re cheaper. They skimp on paper thickness, use a thinner spring … even leave out a seal altogether. No wonder they need changing so often!

Genuine John Deere oil filters Genuine John Deere oil filters are correctly sprung, so they fit properly and stay put.
Look-alike oil filters Look-alike oil filters use weaker non-spec. spring designs, so filter elements can wobble or leak.


Genuine John Deere oil filters Genuine John Deere oil filters use a high quality filter paper with a higher density which lets no harmful particles and also no light through - as the John Deere quality standard requires!
Look-alike oil filters Look-alike oil filter with inferior filter paper which is far more permeable to particles and not so thick which can easily be proven by a light test.

Engine Belts

Minimum wear. Maximum reliability

Choose John Deere belts and combine excellent technical features with optimum temperature-resistant attributes for maximum reliability.

John deere engine belts: a firm grip on advanced technology.

Special materials ensure the highest reliability
John Deere’s rubber v-belt mixture has been specifically formulated to meet the highest demands. As a result, the belts are more resistant to extreme temperatures and external influences: • Heat resistant – up to 120° C • Cold resistant – down to –25° C • Highly resistant to the abrasive affects of oil, ozone and fuel.

Durability Test shows why John Deere v-belts are more reliable
A standard v-belt, an original-equipment quality chloroprene v-belt and a John Deere v-belt with its special rubber mixture were chosen for the test. Each was installed on a test stand with a fir-tree configuration. The simulated ambient temperature was then set at 120° C and the belts were accelerated to a driver speed of 5000 rpm. The test ended when a belt had over 10 rib cracks within 100 mm of each other or one of the ribs failed.

Lasting quality
Thanks to an optimal combination of materials and technical features, the John Deere v-belt held up three times longer than the standard v-belt. It was twice as reliable as the OE chloroprene v-belt!

Cab Glass

What are the demands placed on cab glass? Naturally, they provide protection from the weather and noise. But, as innumerable tests and ten thousand practical applications have shown, John Deere panes comply with John Deere specifications and legal requirements better than these look-alike products. And that means added safety for you, the operator.

In recent tests with look-alike competitors, we covered the following aspects:

  • Manufacturing quality
  • Hole dimensions
  • Ease of installation
  • Leak-proof aspects

John Deere panes are custom-made.
As the inserts show, the dimensions of the look-alike panes do not correspond to those of the John Deere original glass. Conclusion: Expect precision John Deere quality or expect rattles and leaks.

John Deere panes hit the mark. As you can see, the look-alike panes do not! Conclusion: Expect a snug John Deere fit or expect to have a fit when installing look-alike pane!

This third-party pane is well off the mark. Trouble is on the way.

Assembly holes on John Deere glass aren’t rough around the edges.
To prevent possible cracking, the edges of John Deere assembly holes are bevelled. The holes of the look-alike panes often are not. As you can clearly see, tiny cracks have already appeared around the unfinished edges. Conclusion: use John Deere glass or get used to a cracked view.

Gas Struts

Open your doors, windows and covers easily

It’s easy to think gas struts are all the same and just buy on price. But if one fails you soon know about it when a door unexpectedly slams shut on your hand or it becomes really hard to open the engine hood or shut a window. So it’s important you make the right choice when it comes to replacement. John Deere gas struts are built for a long and reliable life with a comfortable action for opening and closing. Here’s our quick buyer’s guide to the essential features of the perfect gas strut:

  • Double sealing system The gas pressure inside a strut is very high (150 bar or 2175 psi) so it’s vitally important it doesn’t leak or it won’t work. Our struts have a special double sealing system which keeps the pressure in and ensures a smooth action and a long service lifetime.
  • Corrosion resistant materials The piston rod has a corrosion resistant coating. In salt spray tests our struts were capable of withstanding a minimum of 144 hours. In the same test, look-alike struts failed after just 24 hours.
  • Scratch free surfaces If the piston rod gets scratched it can damage the seal and gas could leak out, reducing the effectiveness of the strut. Our cylinder pistons have a special scratch-free surface treatment which reduces wear, improves cylinder performance and lengthens the strut’s life.
  • Strong fittings The fittings are also an essential part of the strut’s inherent strength. Ours have specially designed fittings which protect the strut from torsional forces, ensuring a longer life.

  1. Special fitting to reduce torsional forces - Long life
  2. All weather lubricating oil - Built and tested to agricultural specification
  3. Durable seal - Maintenance free
  4. Heavy duty tube - Corrosion proof components
  5. Stainless steel salt spray tested - Guaranteed
  6. Precision-engineered piston - Smooth action
  7. Machined coupling - Easy to fit


Better materials make better bearings Better materials make better bearings

Unlike many of our competitors, we insist on only the best high-carbon and chromium-based steel to ISO standards for our wheel and other bearing applications. The resulting spherical chrome-carbides create a metallurgical surface feature which reduces friction and stress.

The consistent hardness of our bearings avoids material deformations. And because they don’t magnetise, they don’t attract metallic impurities.

Genuine John Deere bearings are made of a premium grade steel that guarantees superior performance under even the toughest conditions.

Look-alike bearings usually aren’t up to our high standards. So, in the end, you pay the price even if the alternative bearings were a bit cheaper.

Survival of the fittest
John Deere tractors perform under gruelling conditions. Loads are intense, temperatures soar and plummet, dust and particles are a constant source of possible contamination. Fortunately, our bearings thrive in these conditions.

Similar bearings look similar
But they don’t perform the same. Want proof? We tested a wide range of standard bearings against our own and we always found the John Deere bearings had higher quality. So why needlessly risk down time? Insist on bearings from John Deere to increase performance and reliability.

Always order bearings from the source you can trust: your John Deere dealer.

The benefits are many
John Deere bearings meet the highest specifications in the industry: our own. That’s why they’re suited for a lifetime of hard work and made especially for the exceptional performance levels our transmissions – and other systems – provide.

Thanks in part to the special VT 119 bearing grease and natural rubber o-rings we use, John Deere bearings keep performing long after conventional bearings have retired to the scrap bin.

Dimensions John Deere brake disc versus non-genuine brake disc

Genuine John Deere brake discs conform to John Deere specifications, which is essential for reliable and durable performance of the complete brake system. Just small deviations in dimensions have a huge impact on the reliability of the braking effect and wear.

  • Reduced wear
  • Reliable braking effect and performance
  • Consistent interaction of complete brake system

The core plate of the non-genuine brake disc is too thick and the friction material not thick enough. Both parameters show a relevant tolerance deviation. Furthermore, the brake disc as a whole is too thick.

  • The non-genuine brake disc does not comply with John Deere specifications
  • The determined tolerance deviations have a negative impact on the braking effect and the interaction of the complete brake system
  • As the friction material is not thick enough, the brake disc wears out more rapidly

Friction Test John Deere brake disc versus non-genuine brake disc

John Deere disc brakes close up

The friction test simulates brake activations. The brake discs have to fulfill a minimum of 1,000 cycles.

Test criteria are:

  • Wear of brake disc and brake pad
  • Friction coefficient

The friction material of the non-genuine brake disc glazed after only 200 cycles.

  • Indication of low-quality material
  • Worsened oil-cooling effect
  • Reduced thermal conductivity
  • Worsened braking effect
  • High wear

Durability Test John Deere brake disc versus non-genuine brake disc

In the durability test, the hub has to bear 5,000 Nm/3,688 lb.-ft. in changing directions for at least 30,000 cycles. During the test, each tooth has to bear more than 1,000 kg/2,205 lb.
