John Deere 4045

Get all the power you need for your most challenging tasks thanks to the 74 kW wastegated turbo-charged John Deere® engine. The engine give your drill rig reliable unbeatable power. It is designed for high performance and maximum efficiency, doing the job while keeping fuel consumption low.


Thanks to the wastegated turbocharger, the engine develop more airflow at lower engine speeds to improve low-speed torque. The wastegate control device bleeds off a portion of the exhaust flow at higher engine speeds. Wastegated turbos deliver improved transient response and higher peak torque without compromising engine envelope size. They also provide the lowest installed cost across a given power range.


John Deere has billions of hours of field experience with off-highway diesel engine technologies and launched many of its engines ahead of EPA and EU deadlines, and is ready to meet Stage V emissions regulations using proven diesel particulate filter (DPF) solutions.  John Deere engineers continue to employ a global network of technical resources and the latest technology to lower emissions while improving performance and fluid efficiency.


Comes installed with a HARDAB engineered variable-speed fan driven air cooler for improved fuel economy and reduced noise levels.


Equipped with a new faster engine control unit (ECU) that manages both the engine and the after-treatment system. With four times the memory, twice the RAM and double the processing speed.

HARDAB Top Drive

At the heart of every drilling rig is the top drive. In every HARDAB sits a work of art made from Swedish quality steel.

The robust construction gives you an unprecedented part lifetime.

You can be rest assured that HARDAB’s Patented Rod Handling System is the best you can get from a rod handling system.

How it works?

It’s simple:

  • Tilt & Load

    Rods are loaded for drilling by tilting the rod basket until a rod falls in the arm and claws close, securing the rod.

  • Lift & Drill

    A simple motion upwards, aligning the rod with the top drive and you are ready for drilling.

With HARDAB Patented Rod Handling System it is that fast and easy. You can even use it as a support to help with the casing. Using a rod handling system is fundamental for a modern drilling business – saving the drillers body, drilling faster and a safer operation – all contribute to more profitable drilling.
