This doesn't surprise me. The Expy seems the happiest overall on M1 0w40 from the grades I've tried.

I'm a service manager at a Deere dealer in North Texas. Deere is phasing out Plus 50 & is replacing it with Plus 50 II which is compatible with the current Tier 3 & the new Tier 4 engines. Deere no longer makes the original Plus 50 as of October.

Quoting what we've received from Deere:

Plus-50 II exceeds the requirements of the American Petroleum
Institute (API) Service Category CJ-4 for use in high-speed fourstroke diesel engines and is backward compatible to meet
previous API engine oil classifications.

Plus-50 II premium engine oil has been designed to provide
advanced lubricant performance in modern low emission
engines, and to meet the requirements of heavy-duty off-road
applications, as well as lighter duty applications including onroad vehicles.

Plus-50 II exceeds demands of John Deere JDQ-78X hightemperature
performance test. JDQ-78X is the most severe engine dyno test for high temperature oil oxidation in the industry. The proven performance from the JDQ-78X along with extensive field testing allows extended drain intervals up to 500 hours when using Plus-50 II and John Deere filters.

Applications
Plus-50 II is recommended for four-stroke naturally aspirated, turbocharged and supercharged diesel engines with Diesel articulate Filters (DPF), Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC), and Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR). Examples of applications include; heavy-duty off-road equipment, vehicles with John Deere iT4 engines, vehicles requiring CJ-4 oil, on-road trucks, marine engines, natural gas engines,pickups, and automobiles. Plus-50 II is also recommended for use in all legacy diesel engine
applications where Plus-50 has been in use.

Specifications
API service categories:
- CJ-4, CI-4 PLUS, CI-4, CH-4, CG-4
- SM, SL, SJ
ACEA (Europe) oil sequences:
- E9, E7
JASO (Japan) oil standards:
- DH-2

Yup i knew that,my dealer still has a good stock of CI(15w40) left,i think it's the same oil they just adjusted the additive package to meet CJ-4 specs,great oil i would rather have CI with the better AW and cleaning property's my self.

0/40 is still CI or are they changing that also????

welcome to the board,nice to have a JD official on board so to speek.

Yes, 0/40 is going to the new standard as well. This all has to do with making sure that the new Tier 4 engines stay within the new emissions standards.

They're saying that a Tier 4 engine using Plus 50 II will be able to go 500 hrs between oil changes vs. the 250 hrs recommended in the operators manual. But they also recommend an oil scan before going to the extended interval.

Yes i understand that also,we still only do 200hr OCI on our units,we have tractors 10,000 plus hrs on the original rebuild,fire right up in winter.

With a 15w in there I bet that thing is going to rattle like mad on initial startup. I hope you at least have a Motorcraft filter on it. The 2v mod motors are already known for some piston slap when cold. A 15w is not going to help that situation.

I topped off the other day because the level on the dipstick was down about 1/4" or so. I used 1/2 quart of oil, and it brought the level back to where it was on the initial fill. I had about 1,100 miles on it, so that means my oil consumption is about half what it was. It may even be less than that, because it could be the No Leak evaporating or seeping past the seals faster than the 0W-40 is.

Because you can take the OCI out 50% more hours then you usally do when running the plus-50(15w40/0w40).




I was wondering the same thing. Strange name. Asking for "Plus 50 15w40" sounds like a misunderstanding waiting to happen.
