At the CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 event in Las Vegas, Nev., a series of Next Generation Engines (NGE), Kreisel batteries, and a remote monitoring and diagnostic services solution for OEM products were on display at the John Deere Power Systems booth. Specifically, the three flagship engines that make up the NGE lineup — the JD4, JD14, and JD18 — were shown to the thousands of industry experts who attended.
"We're looking at a sustainable future,” said Nick Block, global director of sales and marketing for John Deere Power Systems. “Within that future we know it is going to take multiple options. It starts with making our current engine designs more efficient as well as providing next generation engines that deliver more sustainability for [our customers]."
The JD4 made its debut at the CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 event. Compatible with EU Stage IIIA — Stage V emissions standards, this engine is designed for industrial applications and provides an ample amount of auxiliary power.
John Deere Power Systems also had its new concept Kreisel batteries on display at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023. These included 20 kWh and 40 kWh power options to expand the existing lineup of batteries.
"The 63-kilowatt hour is a great starting point, but it is quite large and some form factors of vehicles need more packaging flexibility," said Preston Moore, electrification product manager for John Deere Power Systems. "That's where these other form factors come in. Being able to fit the battery to the vehicle, get the packaging, and ultimately get the right capacity of battery onboard equates to the right amount of runtime for the customer."
As operating conditions continue to evolve, John Deere is committed to diversifying its lineup of batteries to meet the needs of its customers. More information on Deere’s products and services can be found by contacting your local John Deere dealer.
