John Deere Diesel Engine

This is the fourth blog post in a four-part series from the John Deere Emissions Hub highlighting key moments in the history of John Deere engines. For more historical context, check out our earlier blog posts in the History of John Deere Engines series: Our Early EnginesOur Diesel Debut and A New Generation of Power.

In the 1990s, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) presented off-highway diesel engine manufacturers with what would become a complex challenge: drastically reduce emissions.

The last regulatory tier — Final Tier 4 — will be fully implemented by 2015.

No production machines here. The Innovative Uses of Horsepower section is specifically designed to highlight innovative, strange, and yes, weird uses of engine horsepower. Chances are that less than a handful – and often not more than one – of these unique pieces of equipment were ever made.
