            Optimized Hydraulic Oil Reservoir Capacity

            Hydraulic oil resevoir has been decreased from 80 to 40 gallon, reducing refill time and oil-change costs.

            More Uptime

            Large fuel tanks, reliable cylinders, and fuel-sipping diesels allow you to work longer between fill-ups.


            Automatically reduce engine speed when hydraulics aren't in use with the auto-idle feature, saving precious fuel.

            Up to 8% Boost in Fuel Economy

            John Deere FT4 engines maintain maximum engine performance while minimizing total fluid consumption – diesel fuel plus diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).
