John Deere Power Systems announced a redesigned PowerTech 6068SFM75 marine diesel engine that offers a power range of 186 kW to 298 kW (249 hp to 400 hp).

The PowerTech 6068SFM75 joins the PowerTech 6090SFM75 at 410 kW (550 hp) and 6135SFM75 at 559 kW (750 hp) to complete the company’s high-horsepower marine engine lineup.

“We have redesigned the 6068SFM75 in order to significantly reduce the width of the engine. Customers have been asking us for an engine that was more compact so they could use it in their boat where there is not a lot of space available,” John Deere Power Systems marine marketing manager Dave Flaherty said in a statement. “This engine now gives them what they have been asking for — a small package with a lot of reliable horsepower.”
