What will my deductible be?
All Limited PowerGard Plans, regardless of coverage terms, have the same deductible of $500 per work order.
The PowerGard™ Protection Plan is an extended warranty program for eligible new and used John Deere Equipment covering defective components/parts of the engine, powertrain, and a limited number of miscellaneous components due to faulty materials or original workmanship.

1. TEST KIT (DKGA2019)
The kit includes all of the necessary inspection forms and fluid testing materials. Fluid testing costs are included in the price of the kit. Order kits through the JD Point parts system.
Completion of Step #2 and #5 will take approximately 1-2 hours to conduct.
2. PULL FLUID SAMPLES
Pull fluid samples from the engine, transmission/hydraulic, and coolant, and then place each of the Bellows® into the plastic bags provided in the kit. Be sure to operate the equipment and components being sampled at least 15 minutes prior to pulling any fluids, to ensure the sample is representative of the entire lubrication systems being tested.
3. SUBMIT FLUID SAMPLES
Place the PowerGard Inspection/Certification Part A form from kit, along with fluid samples into the self-addressed 2-day air postage paid envelope and mail to:
Analyst, Inc. 2450 Hassell Road, Hoffman Estates, IL 60195
4. REVIEW TEST RESULTS
The entire fluid testing process will take from 5 to 10 working days, from the time the samples are taken and mailed until the results are received from the Analysts, Inc. lab.
Note: Analysts, Inc. will…
- Post all test results on Oilscan Online (dealers can set up account for no charge)
- Respond by phone or fax for “abnormal” or “critical” results only.
- If no account is set up for Oilscan Online, all fluid test results are mailed to the dealership.
- Have a qualified technician review the results and complete any corrective actions.
- Possible fluid test results:
- Normal - considered acceptable for "certification."
- Monitor - considered acceptable, re-sampling is often recommended at later date.
- Abnormal - should be analyzed closely by a technician with special attention to details provided in the analysis, corrective actions are required in many cases.
- Critical - should be analyzed closely by a technician and considered a failure/decline in the certification process.
The PowerGard™ Protection Plan is not insurance. Due to the possibility of rock damage and other insurance related hazards, PowerGard™ Protection does not cover components in the crop path.
Who do I purchase PowerGard from?
PowerGard is only sold through John Deere Dealers.
How do I know that my dealer did in fact purchase the PowerGard?
PowerGard mails out Contract Cards and Coverage Forms to the customer after PowerGard is purchased. However, if the customer’s address was incorrect or if the dealer did not submit any required certification the contract card may not have been received by the customer.
What is the best way for me to find more general information?
Contact your John Deere Dealer.
I am purchasing a different machine and need my PowerGard transferred from my previous machine to the new one. Is this transferrable?
No, the PowerGard contract that was purchased stays with that unit.
My machine just went out of basic warranty can I still get PowerGard coverage? If so how?
No, once a customer owned unit is beyond the basic warranty period, PowerGard is not available for that unit.
My PowerGard contract is going to expire; can I buy additional coverage for my machine?
Some products do have upgrade options, but may require certification. Contact your John Deere Dealer to find out if your machine is available for an upgrade.
Can I finance PowerGard when I finance my machine?
In general yes, you would have to contact your financial institution or dealer for verification.
Do I have to use a specific dealer for my PowerGard warranty work?
For most contracts any John Deere Dealer can perform the warranty repairs. If a Short Term used Tractor PPP contract was purchased, the dealer that sold the contract will have to perform the warranty repairs.
Do I have to pay the deductable for every issue that is wrong with my machine?
There is one deductible per covered event. If a work order has several segments or issues, there would be one deductible.
Do you cover transportation costs?
There is no travel, transportation, or shipping coverage.
