John Deere Power Systems has introduced marine engines specifically designed for radiator-cooled marine gen-set and auxiliary applications.

The range of engine options will allow John Deere customers to select the best product for a variety of generator and auxiliary application needs including pumps, winches, cranes and hydraulics.

“Our complete line-up of marine EPA Tier 3 generator and auxiliary drive engines enable our customers to choose an engine solution that best meets their needs and offers the reliable and cost-effective solutions they’ve come to expect from John Deere,” said Heather Balk, marine market planner for John Deere Power Systems.

“Customers can depend upon new 9.0L and 13.5L engines to keep their operations productive.”

The new PowerTech 6090HFM85 is rated for variable speed at 242 kW (325 hp) at 2000 rpm and for generator drive and constant speed auxiliary at 262 kW (351 hp) at 1800 rpm.

While the new PowerTech 6135HFM85 is rated for variable speed at 373 kW (500 hp) at 2000 rpm and for a generator drive and constant speed auxiliary at 416 kW (558 hp) at 1800 rpm.

Both new marine engines are well-suited for gen-set, constant speed and variable speed auxiliary applications, particularly when wet manifolds and marine society classification certificates are desired or required.

The ratings of both engines meet US Environmental Protection Agency Marine Tier 3 emissions regulations and are compliant with International Maritime Organization Tier II standards for commercial applications.

The PowerTech 6090HFM85 and 6135HFM85 engines will be available for order by early 2018.
