John Deere Power Systems announced today that it was beginning production of three new marine engines for the commercial and recreational marine market.  The new engines offer a power range of 139 kW (186 hp) up to 559 kw (750 hp), the latter being the most powerful engine offered by JDPS.  All three will be available for installation in early 2010 and all meet EPA Tier 2 and EU emissions requirements.  They are also MARPOL Annex VI compliant.

The PowerTech 6068AFM75 has 6.8L of displacement and boasts up to 246 kW (330 hp). This engine delivers high horsepower in a small package and offers more flexibility in this popular power range.  The 6068AFM75 is a 6-cylinder, electronically controlled, turbocharged and air-to-coolant aftercooled marine engine with more low-speed torque and better transient-response times.

The PowerTech 6090SFM75 has 9.0L of displacement and offers up to 373 kW (500 hp). The 6090SFM75 is a 6-cylinder, electronically controlled, turbocharged and air-to-seawater aftercooled marine engine.

 The PowerTech 6135SFM75 has 13.5L of displacement and boasts up to 559 kW (750 hp). This engine is the most powerful engine produced by John Deere and offers high torque at low-rated speeds. The 6135SFM75 is a six-cylinder, electronically controlled, turbocharged and air-to-seawater aftercooled marine engine.
