John Deere introduces Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) handling equipment for off-highway applications

Rebecca Hayward - 10 January 2014

Agricultural machinery manufacturer John Deere has launched a range of pump kits and portable dispensing units designed to make it easier for owners of Tier 4 Final-compliant equipment to handle large volumes of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF).

"We've had several years to prepare for Final Tier 4 emissions regulations to be implemented and have put products and services in place at John Deere dealerships across the country to make it convenient for our customers," says Chad Smith, Product Line Marketing Manager.

John Deere's pump kit comes fully assembled and includes a 4 ft. suction hose and a 20 ft. discharge hose with stainless steel automatic shutoff nozzle; and the dispensing unit (a 20 and 60 gallon Portable Dispensing Unit) comes with a removable pump, 20 ft. dispensing hose and stainless steel automatic shutoff nozzle.

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