The John Deere jet fuel capable engines run on military, arctic, and aviation fuel, including Jet A, Jet A-1, JP-5, and JP-8. If you need to switch back to diesel fuel, just fill up the tank and go.
Cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR)
Cools and mixes measured amounts of cooled exhaust gas with incoming fresh air to lower peak combustion temperatures, thereby reducing NOx
Variable geometry turbocharger (VGT)
Varies exhaust pressure based on load and speed to ensure proper EGR flow and best-in-class fuel economy.
High-pressure common-rail (HPCR) and engine control unit (ECU)
The HPCR fuel system provides variable common-rail pressure, multiple injections, and higher injection pressures up to 1,600 bar (23,000 psi). It also controls fuel injection timing and provides precise control for the start, duration, and end of injection.
4-valve cylinder head
The 4-valve cylinder head provides excellent airflow by utilizing a cross-flow design
This is the most efficient method of cooling intake air to help reduce engine emissions. It enables an engine to meet emissions regulations with better fuel economy and the lowest installed costs
Horsepower/displacement ration is best-in-class
Lower installed cost
Mounting points are the same as previous engine models
John Deere electronic engine controls
Electronic engine controls monitor critical engine functions, providing warning and/or shutdown to prevent costly engine repairs and eliminate the need for add-on governing components, all lowering total installed costs.
Self adjusting poly-vee fan drive
Single-piece low-friction steel piston
Low-pressure fuel system with electrical transfer pump and "auto-prime" feature
