Engine Options

9 series in the field

John Deere JD14 (13.6L) Engine

The 13.6L engine offers up to 640 horsepower, and delivers improved fuel efficiency and faster start times, plus it stays in the power band longer for long pulls or tough spots in the field. Not only does it supply 13.5% more horsepower than the 13.5L engine, but it also carries less weight and overall size, and reduces raw engine noise by 50%. All 9 Series tractors are now built with the JD14 Engine.

Intelligent Power Management

Intelligent Power Management

Get up to a 37 kilowatt increase during high flow hydraulic applications for full engine power. Couple that with the hydraulic capacity you need, and these tractors can handle large planters and seeding equipment with ease.

Emissions Control

In FT4 configuration, our seamlessly Integrated Emissions Control system uses less diesel fuel and diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) for total fluid economy. The aftertreatment system is streamlined into a smaller package than on previous models, improving visibility from the cab, and uses less DEF. To meet your farm's rigorous demands, we use a proven emissions-reduction strategy with a diesel oxidation catalyst, a diesel particulate filter, and selective catalytic reduction system.

9 Series fan drive

Hydraulic Fan Drive

New hydraulically driven fan system on FT4 engines increase service intervals and reduces costly downtime.

e18™ PowerShift Transmission

Get smooth shifting and intuitive controls in a reliable 18-speed PowerShift transmission. Redesigned gears, increased cooling capacity for clutch disks, and more clutch disks in range clutches allows the e18 to deliver the strength to handle sudden, high-torque power loads while maintaining responsive, quick and smooth shifts.
