John Deere Engines Offer Field-Proven Irrigation Power

At home in the field. John Deere irrigation engines know their way around a farm field. With more than 80 years of proven performance under our belt, you can depend on John Deere for uninterrupted performance and unbeatable fuel economy. Our engines work in hot, dusty field conditions. And they keep working to protect your valuable crop investment.

Biodiesel is here. Besides its environmental and energy-security benefits, quality biodiesel results in improved lubricity, minimal sulfur emissions, and reduced aromatics. 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 in the fuel blend meets the standards set by the American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM) Standard D6751 or European Standard (EN) 14214. John Deere continues to perform lab and field tests using biodiesel. We have also developed a fuel conditioner for use with biodiesel fuels.
