We've added kilowatts and shifting control across the board, giving you extra pulling power and the ability to reach and maintain higher speeds in rough field conditions – without sacrificing accuracy or fuel economy.


Engine Options

9 series in the field

John Deere PowerTech™ 13.6 L Engine

Available in Final Tier 4 emission levels, the all-new 13.6 L engine offers up to 440 kilowatts, and delivers improved fuel efficiency and faster start times, plus it stays in the power band longer for long pulls or tough spots in the field. Not only does it supply 13.5% more horsepower than the 13.5 L engine, and in FT4 configuration, it also carries less weight and overall size, and creates 50% less engine noise.

Cummins® 15 L QSX15 Engine

John Deere and Cummins®* have partnered to provide a reliable and efficient engine on all 477 kilowatt models. Similar to John Deere engines, the QSX15 features exhaust gas recirculation and an exhaust aftertreatment combination of diesel particulate filter and selective catalytic reduction. It's fully serviceable by your John Deere dealer.

Intelligent Power Management

Intelligent Power Management

Get up to a 37 kilowatt increase during high flow hydraulic applications for full engine power. Couple that with the hydraulic capacity you need, and these tractors can handle large planters and seeding equipment with ease.

9 series

Emissions Control

In FT4 configuration, our seamlessly Integrated Emissions Control system uses less diesel fuel and diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) for total fluid economy. The aftertreatment system is streamlined into a smaller package than on previous models, improving visibility from the cab, and uses less DEF. To meet your farm's rigorous demands, we use a proven emissions-reduction strategy with a diesel oxidation catalyst, a diesel particulate filter, and selective catalytic reduction system.

9 Series fan drive

Hydraulic Fan Drive

New hydraulically driven fan system on FT4 engines increase service intervals and reduces costly downtime.

9 Series tractor on the road

e18™ PowerShift Transmission

Get smooth shifting and intuitive controls in a reliable 18-speed PowerShift transmission. Redesigned gears, increased cooling capacity for clutch disks, and more clutch disks in range clutches allows the e18 to deliver the strength to handle sudden, high-torque power loads while maintaining responsive, quick and smooth shifts.
