Deere Expands DEF Products

Posted on January 10, 2014

To make it convenient for customers to access, handle and use diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) and other fluids in Tier 4 final-compliant equipment, John Deere has announced a range of fluids and handling equipment. In addition to its Cool-Gard II Heavy Duty Engine Coolant, Plus-50 II Premium Engine Oil and Diesel Exhaust Fluid, developed and manufactured to meet the specifications for use in John Deere selective catalytic reduction (SCR) engines, the company is offering a line of pump kits and portable dispensing units to handle larger volumes of DEF.

John Deere Diesel Exhaust Fluid is available in variety of sizes, including 2.5-gal. jugs; 55-gal. drums; and 275- and 330-gal. totes.  For customers using the larger drums and totes, John Deere has also introduced 110V and 12V pump kits that come fully assembled and include everything needed to dispense DEF, including 4-ft. suction hose with closed system dry break coupler and 20-ft. discharge hose with stainless steel automatic shutoff nozzle.

Other new equipment to help customers get DEF to the field include 20- and 60-gallon portable dispensing units which are now available from John Deere dealers. These self-contained units consist of a stainless steel tank, removable 12V pump with 20-ft. dispensing hose, and stainless steel auto shutoff nozzle with swivel. These units are designed to fit in a pickup truck bed or on a fuel trailer for transport.  

John Deere Diesel Exhaust Fluid and supporting handling equipment can be used on all John Deere SCR-equipped machines, as well as other makes of SCR-equipped machines that require DEF.
