John Deere is adding two new 4.5L models to its lineup of Tier 3 marine engines: the PowerTech 4045TFM85 generator-drive engine and the PowerTech 4045AFM85 propulsion and generator-drive engine. The PowerTech 4045TFM85 generator-drive engine will offer quiet and smooth operation for gen-set applications.

The PowerTech 4045AFM85 engine will feature a high-pressure common-rail fuel system, four valves per cylinder, turbocharging and air-to-coolant aftercooling. It will be available with keel cooled or integrated heat exchanger options. PowerTech 4045AFM85 propulsion engine will be from 160 to 225hp.
