OLATHE, Kansas — John Deere announces that it has significantly increased the warranty periods for its Ag and Turf equipment parts, retroactive to parts sold after Nov. 1, 2016. The new warranty terms apply to dealer-installed John Deere original equipment manufactured (OEM) parts and labor, as well as non-dealer or customer-installed John Deere OEM parts for the company’s Ag and Turf lines of equipment.
Under the new parts warranty for John Deere ag equipment, OEM parts will be covered for 12 months/unlimited hours for both parts and labor when installed by an authorized John Deere dealer. For non-dealer or customer-installed parts, the warranty is 6 months/unlimited hours of coverage after purchase. This includes parts for all John Deere branded agricultural equipment, construction and forestry products, including commercial worksite products (CWP) and Frontier ag equipment.
All John Deere OEM Turf equipment parts, regardless of whether they are dealer installed or non-dealer/customer installed, now carry 6 months/unlimited hours coverage. Labor is covered for dealer-installed parts, and a parts invoice is required as part of the warranty process. Parts for John Deere Golf equipment are covered under the Turf products warranty. Seasonal start-date deferrals still apply with the new parts warranty for both Ag and Turf equipment.
Exceptions to the new warranty terms include batteries, supplier-administered warranties, software and other parts as outlined in the John Deere Warranty Statement. Parts from A&I and Sunbelt, as well as non-dealer installed Reman parts, retain their current parts and labor warranty policies.
