John Deere Introduces Emissions-Compliant Engines and Emissions Hub Blog

John Deere Power Systems will display its emissions-compliant engines at World of Concrete 2012 as well as introduce its new blog which helps end users understand emissions regulations.

John Deere Power Systems (JDPS) will display five of its Interim Tier 4/Stage IIIB diesel engines at World of Concrete 2012, January 24 to 27 in Las Vegas. Engines on exhibit will include the PowerTech PWX 4.5L, PowerTech PVX 6.8L models above and below 130 kW (174 hp), the PowerTech PVX 9.0L and the PowerTech PSX 13.5L. In addition, John Deere will also exhibit a pump drive cluster.

In conjunction with the show, JDPS is pleased to introduce the John Deere Emissions Hub, a blog developed to provide end users of off-highway equipment with regularly updated insights on emissions compliance and other resources. Jointly developed by JDPS and John Deere’s Construction & Forestry  division, the Emissions Hub was created to promote greater end-user understanding of how increasingly stringent emissions regulations impact their business. The blog will serve as a valuable information center for anyone connected to the construction, forestry, agriculture and turf industries.

“The Emissions Hub is intended to improve our customers’ competitiveness in these challenging times by offering expert business resources, technology updates and news on emissions standards,” says Geoff Stigler, manager of worldwide marketing for John Deere Power Systems. “Blog visitors will be able to explore our resources, provide feedback and return frequently for the latest news and regulatory requirements — obtaining all the information they need to develop strategies and make the right decisions for their business.”

“Our customers are seeing increasing pressure to get their equipment up to speed as emissions regulation compliance deadlines approach,” says Joe Mastanduno, product marketing manager, engine/drivetrain for John Deere Construction & Forestry. “As questions arise, the Emissions Hub blog provides a place to come for answers. We look forward to listening to our customers and providing valuable information and insight to make compliance an opportunity, not an obstacle.”

In January 2012, what had been known as the Straightforward Blog became the John Deere Emissions Hub, residing at Visitors to the former site will be redirected to the new address.
