John Deere is ready to work, ready to generate, and ready to run with engines meeting EU Stage V emissions regulations. This means OEM customers currently using a John Deere engine with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) won’t have to re-engineer their machines to meet the requirements of Stage V regulations. John Deere has been using DPF technology since Interim Tier 4/Stage III B and is well positioned to help customers transition to the EU’s Stage V standard. John Deere has extensive experience with the development and integration of DPFs in both John Deere and OEM equipment, with more than 425 million DPF hours* in the field. OEMs new to the technology will then be able to leverage the John Deere experience as they transition to Stage V.
