John Deere Power Systems (JDPS) announced its PowerTech PVX 6.8L above 130 kW (174 hp) and its PowerTech PSX 6.8L engine have been certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and European Union (EU) as compliant with the Interim Tier 4 and Stage III B regulations.
The PowerTech PSX and PVX 6.8L engines join the certified 9.0L engine models. John Deere's PowerTech PVX and PSX 9.0L engine models were the first engines to receive EPA and EU Interim Tier 4/Stage III B certification early this year.
"The EPA and EU certification of our 9.0L engines was a tremendous milestone for JDPS, and now with the 6.8L engines certified we believe it clearly demonstrates our commitment to offer the right technology at the right time," said Doug Laudick, product planning manager for JDPS.
