Your Warranty Rights and Obligations
The California Air Resources Board, John Deere, and the United States
Environmental Protection Agency are pleased to explain the emissions
control system’s warranty on your 2009 and later small off-road engine
equipment. In California, new equipment that uses small off-road engines
must be designed, built and equipped to meet the State’s stringent anti-
smog standards. John Deere must warrant the emissions control system
on your small off-road engine equipment for the period listed below
provided there has been no abuse, neglect or improper maintenance of
Your emissions control system may include parts such as: carburetors or
fuel-injection system, ignition system, catalytic converters, fuel tanks,
valves, filters, clamps, connectors, and other associated components.

Where a warrantable condition exists, John Deere will repair your small
off-road engine equipment at no cost to you including diagnosis, parts and
Manufacturer’s Warranty Coverage:
This emissions control system is warranted for two years. If any emissions
related part on your equipment is defective, the part will be repaired or
replaced by John Deere.
Owner’s Warranty Responsibilities:
• As the small off-road equipment owner, you are responsible for the
performance of the required maintenance listed in your Operator’s
Manual. John Deere recommends that you retain all receipts covering
maintenance on your small off-road engine equipment, but John Deere
can not deny warranty solely for lack of receipts or for your failure to
ensure the performance of all scheduled maintenance.
• As the small off-road engine equipment owner, you should however be
aware that John Deere may deny you warranty coverage if your small off-
road equipment or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect, or improper
maintenance or unapproved modifications.
• You are responsible for presenting your small off-road engine 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 a question regarding your warranty coverage, you should contact
your John Deere Commercial and Consumer Equipment Retailer, or the
John Deere Customer Contact Center at 1-800-537-8233.
General Emissions Warranty Coverage:
The warranty period begins on the date the equipment is delivered to an
ultimate purchaser. John Deere warrants to the ultimate purchaser and
each subsequent purchaser that the small off-road engine equipment is:
• Designed, built and equipped so as to conform to all applicable
regulations adopted by the Air Resources Board;
•Designed, built and equipped so as to conform at the time of sale with
applicable U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations under 40
CFR Part 90: and,
• Free from defects in materials and workmanship which cause such
engine to fail to conform with applicable regulations for a period of two
years of engine use from the date of sale to the ultimate purchaser.
Emissions Warranty Interpretation
• Any warranted part that is not scheduled for replacement as required by
the maintenance instructions in the Operator’s Manual is warranted for two
years. If any such part fails during the period of warranty coverage it will
be repaired or replaced by John Deere. Any such part repaired or
replaced under warranty is warranted for the remaining warranty period.
• Any warranted part that is scheduled only for regular inspection in the
maintenance instructions in the Operator’s Manual is warranted for two
years. A statement in the Operator’s Manual to the effect of “repair or
replace as necessary” does not reduce the period of warranty coverage.
Any such part repaired or replaced under warranty is warranted for the
remaining warranty period.
• Any warranted part that is scheduled for replacement as required
maintenance in the Operator’s Manual is warranted for the period of time
prior to the first scheduled replacement point for that part. If the part fails
prior to the first scheduled replacement, the part will be repaired or
replaced by John Deere. Any such part repaired or replaced under
warranty is warranted for the remainder of the period prior to the first
scheduled replacement point for the part.
• Repair or replacement of any warranted part under the warranty will be
performed at no charge to the owner at any authorized John Deere
Commercial and Consumer Equipment Retailer.
• The owner will not be charged for diagnostic labor which leads to the
determination that a warranted part is defective, provided such work is
performed by John Deere.
• John Deere will repair damages to other engine components proximately
caused by a failure under warranty of any emissions-related warranted
• Add-on or modified parts that are not exempted by the Air Resources
Board may not be used. The use of any non-exempted add-on or modified
parts will be grounds for disallowing a warranty claim. John Deere will not
be liable to warrant failures of warranted parts caused by the use of a non-
exempted add-on or modified part.
