John Deere Plus-50 II Engine Oil

Plus-50 II

The new John Deere Plus-50 II engine oil has been specifically developed for off-road applications and extreme operating temperatures for both existing and newer engines. Plus-50 II oil maintains its viscosity significantly longer and better than standard engine oils, keeping your engine running smoothly for up to 500 hours (proven by the JDQ-78X off-road dyno test).


  • API service categories: CJ-4, CI-4,CH-4, SM, SL, SJ
  • ACEA oil sequences: E9, E7
  • JDQ-78X




  • Reduces maintenance costs and downtime
  • Drain intervals may be extended up to 500 hours when used with John Deere filters in John Deere engines (refer to operator's manual for detail)
  • Formulated specifically to inhibit oxidation, deposits, corrosion, and wear with superior soot control
  • Provides maximum sludge and varnish control
  • Excellent low-temperature fluidity reduces engine wear in cold weather.
  • Low ash technology to support diesel particulate filter service life.
  • Full fleet solution: superior protection in low emission engines (IT4) and older engines.
John Deere Hy-Gard Hydraulic Transmission Oil


Protect your hydraulics and transmissions with the best oil for both: Hy-Gard. It not only meets John Deere equipment standards, it exceeds them. And Hy-Gard oil is a sophisticated Universal Tractor Transmission Oil (UTTO). So it's easy for you to choose the right oil for your agricultural and turf equipment.

This top-of-the-line lubricant provides smooth performance under a wide range of operating conditions for:

  • Transmissions and differential units with immersed “wet” brakes
  • Gearboxes with hydraulic brakes
  • Gearboxes with hydraulic derived systems
  • Hydraulic transmissions


  • JDM J20C (regular)/JDM J20D (low viscosity) – minimum specs
  • RES 10060 for John Deere factory and aftermarket standards


  • Superior high temperature performance helps ensure fewer deposits and a longer life
  • Controls moisture build-up, oxidation and deposit formations due to heat
  • Prolongs clutch life
  • Recommended for equipment with common reservoirs or separate transmission and hydraulic systems, including those with wet brakes and clutches
  • Performance exceeds the above specifications.
John Deere Cool-Gard II Coolant

Cool-Gard II

Cool-Gard II is the coolant that is designed to extend the life of your engine. This remarkable coolant protects against corrosion, cavitation and deposits under the harshest conditions. And to make sure John Deere develops the best coolant to protect against these conditions, we've put Cool-Gard II through very aggressive high thermal load tests (*). We compared how Cool-Gard II protects common cooling system metals under these extreme conditions with how other coolants protect under the same conditions. The proven advanced oxidation stability provides long-lasting protection against heat. So you'll spend more time in the field turning profits and less time worrying about maintenance expenses.




  • Up to 6-year/6,000-hour service life
  • Optimized maintenance costs thru longer service intervals
  • Fully formulated, ready-to-use solution for long-life stability and performance
  • Protection against corrosion and deposits
  • Cavitation control for a longer liner life and more.
  • Efficient water pump performance.
  • Reliable freeze-point protection until -37°C

(*) Tested using modified ASTM D2272 thermal oxidative stability test. Typically used to test steam turbine oils, test conditions were modified to test oxidation stability of ethylene glycol coolants.
