Break-in Plus, Special Purpose Engine Oil

Break-in Plus is a special purpose engine oil developed to be used in rebuilt
or remanufactured engines and new John Deere engines during the initial
break-in period.

This next generation oil is formulated to provide a
controlled environment for piston rings and cylinder liners to establish a
good surface mating for maximum performance and long engine life. At the same
time, Break-In Plus provides the necessary wear protection for valve train
and gears.

Break-In Plus
is designed to be used in rebuilt or remanufactured engines and new John
Deere engines for the initial oil service interval. Operate the engine under
various conditions, particularly heavy loads with minimal idling, to help
seat engine components properly.

Break-In Plus delivers performance and protection for an
initial service interval equal to that of our premium Plus-50 II. During the
initial operation of a new or remanufactured engine with Break-In Plus,
change the oil and filter between a minimum of 100 hours and a maximum of up
to 500 hours. The 100 hour minimum applies to all new or remanufactured
engines, regardless of Tier. The maximum service interval is the same as the
service interval recommendations for Plus-50 and/or Plus-50 II, up to 500
hours. Check your operator manual for the maximum interval recommendation.

·
Contains special additives to control piston ring and liner
seating without scuffing

·
These additives allow rings and liners to seat while protecting
valve train and gears from wear

·
Piston rings and liners establish a good wear pattern for
maximum performance and extended engine life

Break-In Plus provides two major differences from traditional Break-In
oil

·
Meets the oil requirements for Interim Tier 4 (IT4) engines and
supports all legacy engines

·
Service drain interval up to 500 hours (1)

John Deere Break-In Plus
Engine Oil can be used for all John Deere diesel engines at all emission
certification levels.

(1) Always follow
Operator Manual

The initial break-in service interval of a new or
remanufactured wet sleeve engine with Break-In Plus must go at least 100 hours
to assure the surface mating of the rings and liners has had an opportunity
to occur. The 100 hour minimum applies to all new or remanufactured wet-sleeve
John Deere diesel engines, regardless of Tier certification level.

The maximum initial oil service interval when using
Break-In Plus is the same as the service interval recommendations for Plus-50
II.

This table indicates both the minimum and maximum
recommended initial intervals when using Break-In Plus, Break-In, or a blend
of the two:

(1)Specific to John Deere diesel engines using John
Deere filters, using Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) at 15 ppm or less Sulfur
content, and the engine is operating within the original factory
specifications affecting rated power output, including engine control units
(ECUs) and fuel delivery systems.

(2)Consult with the Operators Manual for break in
procedures when involving a non John Deere engine.

(3)The engine must be using Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel
(ULSD) at 15 ppm or lower Sulfur content.

Change the oil and oil filter at least once every 12
months even if the hours of operation are fewer than the otherwise
recommended service interval.

Break-In
Plus will be required in our wet sleeve IT4 engines for emission compliance.
Either Break-In or Break-In Plus oil can be used in our non- IT4 wet sleeve
diesel engines.

If
an IT4 engine is delivered into a region yet to be supported by our Break-In
Plus, the end customer should keep the factory fill Break-In Plus in service
for at least 100 hours. If the oil consumption or loss dictates additional
make up volume, options are limited to API CJ-4 (ACEA E-9) oil to remain in
compliance with emission levels. 10W-30 is the recommended weight through the
break in period.

Break-In
Plus is already available in Canada and the United States. Roll out to other
regions will be announced as product is staged for release in those areas.

Break-In
Plus is an aftermarket product at this time. It is available at factories for
fill of IT4 engines being installed into pre-production units as required and
it will be used on all assembly lines that adopt wet sleeve IT4 engines
equipped with DPF devices moving forward.

These
engines currently use Plus-50 10W-30 as their factory fill. The initial
service interval remains unchanged at 500 hours. Any changes to either of these
details will be communicated.

No.
Surface mating is expected to be achieved after 100 hours of operating the
engine under various conditions, particularly heavy loads with minimal
idling. The engine oil may be switched to the intended service oil,
preferably Plus-50 II, anytime after the initial 100 hours has been reached,
and up to the maximum recommended oil service interval per the Operators
Manual.

After the initial 100 hours with Break-In Plus, the
customer may top-up with Plus 50™ II.

This
is acceptable. When break-in procedures are followed to operate the engine under
various conditions, particularly heavy loads with minimal idling, to help
seat engine components properly, it should effectively occur by 100 operating
hours. Once this has occurred, the operator may continue topping off and
servicing the engine with Break-In Plus through the initial oil service
interval. Alternately, as the rings and liners have now aligned mating
surfaces, the operator may move forward to use the preferred service fluid,
Plus-50 II.

Break-In and Break-In Plus are in the 10W-30 family
bracket.

The
same technology and performance advancements we are using in the development
of Plus-50 II have been applied to John Deere Break-In Plus. This, combined
with the noted Sulfur level reduction in diesel fuel supports our offering of
this opportunity.
