John Deere Warranty & Protection Plans

posted on Friday, February 8, 2019 in Dealer News

The John Deere warranty is one of the best manufacturer basic warranties in the industry.

And you are fully supported by your local Sunshine dealership. Sunshine has factory trained and certified technicians that will ensure you are operating at peak performance and getting the most out of your John Deere equipment for many years to come.

Since many customers often own their equipment well beyond the factory John Deere warranty, Deere offers the PowerGard Protection Plan, which can allow you to extend the coverage on most equipment. The protection plan covers the cost of parts and labor associated with required repairs or replacement of covered components due to faulty material or original workmanship.

The PowerGard Protection Plan can be financed within initial purchase. This allows for greater budgeting of repair expenses, better risk management and improved peace of mind. Most programs allow you to purchase the coverage provided under PowerGard Protection Plan at any time during the basic warranty period, giving you time and flexibility in your coverage purchase decisions.


The earlier you purchase the coverage in the basic warranty, the less expensive it will be. The PowerGard Protection Plan is available for most tractors, combines, harvesters, utility vehicles, commercial mowers, etc., and there are different protection plans for residential, construction and OEM extended warranty. All coverage includes a customer deductible which varies by equipment type.

See your Sunshine dealer in Louisiana for more details. The protection plan is transferable and adds tremendous value to your equipment if you are thinking about trading or selling it.
