John Deere Power Systems

Who we are

John Deere PowerTech™ engines are as powerful and dependable in the water as they are on the land. Our marine propulsion, generator, and auxiliary engines share the same reputation for performance and reliability that their agricultural and industrial counterparts have enjoyed for decades. They are built for long life, reliable performance, fuel efficiency, quiet operation, ease of access to major parts, and simplified integration. But don’t just take our word for it. Find out why John Deere is the powerful and reliable choice.

John Deere marine engines comply with international, European, and United States emissions standards for regulated vessels. John Deere also offers engines for the non-regulated regions throughout the world.

John Deere engines give you an effective blend of pure power and rugged durability. From 60 to 559 kW (80 to 750 hp), our complete, high-horsepower lineup offers the right engines for your needs. The result? John Deere engines build power faster for cruising at higher speeds with lower rpm. Boost your vessel’s performance in wind, swells, tides, or currents with reliable power that’s ready when you are.

John Deere is also a trusted provider of generator drive engines worldwide. For reliable power from 40 to 416 kW (54 to 558 hp), John Deere generator drive and constant-speed auxiliary engines deliver quiet operation and low vibration. The water-cooled exhaust manifolds provide cool, quiet performance.
