John Deere Lubricants - the best lubricants weren't tough enough! So we developed our ownJohn Deere Lubricants - the best lubricants weren't tough enough! So we developed our own

When it comes to choosing the right lubricants for your John Deere equipment, you can believe the myths and compromise performance and productivity, or get the genuine facts. To help you make the right choice, we’ve busted five of the most common myths.

Lubricant Myths - BustedLubricant Myths - Busted
Lubricants Myth #1

Fact

On-road (highway) vehicles put 40-50% load factor on parts, have more airflow (speed) and run on cleaner surfaces. Off-road (on-farm and on-construction) site vehicles put 70-80% load factors on parts, have less airflow which increases heat and run on dusty, dirty and rough terrain. Genuine John Deere lubricants are specifically developed for equipment that are used in much harsher conditions under increased stress, heat and exposure to contaminants. So in fact there is a big difference.

Lubricants Myth #2

Fact

Short-term savings on cheaper products can end up costing more in the long run due to faster wearing of parts and associated downtime. While high quality, genuine John Deere lubricants may cost more initially, they save you money in the long run by reducing wear and avoiding downtime and as a result prolonging the life of your equipment.

Lubricants Myth #3

Fact

The best lubricants weren’t tough enough, so we developed our own. Only John Deere lubricants are specifically designed to prolong service intervals, ensure peak performance and increase the lifespan of parts in John Deere equipment. They meet and in most cases exceed the latest industry standards for lubricants.

Lubricants Myth #4

Fact

These minimum industry standards are not the best way of judging the quality of one brand against another. There are many oils only just that meet these standards, many that exceed them, and some that don’t even meet the standards claimed on the label. With high quality, genuine John Deere lubricants you can be confident that they meet, and in some cases exceed, the highest industry standards.

Lubricants Myth #5

Fact

Lubricant formulations are designed by engineers and are, or at least should be, a very well designed balance of the right additives and base oils. Using the wrong additive or calculating the wrong additive amounts can completely upset this balance and may well reduce its ability to protect. Only John Deere lubricants are specifically formulated for John Deere equipment to prolong service intervals, ensure peak performance and increase the lifespan of parts, without the need for additives.
