John Deere Power Systems (JDPS) has introduced two new 13.5 L generator drive diesel engines for emergency stationary gen-set applications in the 350 to 500 kW range. The PowerTech E 13.5 L Tier 3 and PowerTech 13.5 L Tier 2 engines are designed for the 60 Hz standby power markets in the United States and Canada.
