John Deere, founded the largest agricultural and construction equipment manufacturers in the world. John Deere started life as an American blacksmith, and then served in public office and, though he died in 1886, the company survived him and became the front runner in manufacturing products and providing services for the agriculture and forestry industries, and the construction industry. Over time this legendary company name became famous for the way it built its product, making them some of the most longevity of any equipment.
In time, John Deere decided to make their own unique diesel engines. Sure enough the John Deere diesel engines lived up to their name and continue to be some of the most robust and fuel efficient diesel engines in the World.
