Product Warranty

Product warranty is provided as part of John Deere’s support program for customers who operate and maintain their equipment as described in this manual.

Engine related warranties stated in this manual refer only to emissions-related parts and components of your engine. The complete engine warranty, less emission-related parts and components, is provided separately as the Limited Warranty for New John Deere Commercial & Consumer Equipment.

John Deere, Federal and California Emissions Control System Warranty Statement (Small Off-Road Gas Engines)

Your Warranty Rights and Obligations

California Air Resources Board (CARB), the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and John Deere are pleased to explain the emissions control system warranty on your small off-road engine and equipment. In California, 2006 and later small off-road engines and equipment must be designed, built and equipped to meet the State’s stringent anti-smog standards. (In other states, 1997 and later model year equipment engines must be designed, built and equipped to meet the U.S. EPA regulations for small non-road, spark ignition engines.) John Deere must warrant the emissions control system on your small off-road engine and equipment for the periods of time listed below provided there has been no abuse, neglect or improper maintenance of your small off-road engine and equipment.

Your emissions control system may include parts such as the carburetor, fuel hose, fuel-injection system and ignition system. Also included may be connectors and other emissions related assemblies.

Where a warrantable condition exists, John Deere will repair your small off-road engine and equipment at no cost to you including diagnosis, parts and labor.

John Deere Emissions Control System Warranty Coverage

Small off-road engines and equipment are warranted relative to emissions control parts for two years. If any emissions related part on your engine or equipment is defective, the part will be repaired or replaced by John Deere.

Owner’s Warranty Responsibilities

As the small off-road engine and equipment owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance listed in your owner’s manual. John Deere recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your small off-road engine and equipment, but John Deere cannot deny warranty solely for lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure all scheduled maintenance is performed.

As the small off-road engine and equipment owner, you should however be aware that John Deere may deny you warranty coverage if your small off-road engine and equipment or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance or unapproved modifications.

You are responsible for presenting your small off-road engine and equipment to an authorized John Deere Commercial and Consumer Equipment Retailer as soon as a problem exists. The warranty repairs should be completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.

If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights and responsibilities, you should contact your John Deere Commercial and Consumer Equipment Retailer, or the John Deere Customer Contact Center at 1-877-881-0430.

Length Of Warranty Coverage

John Deere warrants to the initial owner and each subsequent purchaser that the small off-road engine and equipment is:

• Designed, built and equipped so as to conform with all applicable regulations adopted by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for 2006 and later engines and equipment, if labeled as such, and all applicable regulations of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for 1997 and later equipment engines; and

• Free from defects in materials and workmanship which can cause the failure of an emissions warranted part for a period of two years after the engine and equipment is delivered to the initial retail purchaser. John Deere is liable for damages to other engine components caused by the failure of a warranted part during the warranty period. If any emissions related part on your engine or equipment is defective, the part will be repaired or replaced by John Deere.
