Exclamation John deere 15w40 oil

Does anyone know about the John Deere Plus II 15w40 engine oil!? Is it cheap? Does it work well in summer/winter? Runs good? How many miles before you have to change!? Anyone know? Thanks!

I used to run it in my Cummins, not my PSD. It has a API CJ-4 cert so it will work fine in a PSD. Where are you located? How cold does it get in the winter?

I ran 15w40, usually delo or delvac depending on which was on sale, year round in Mass for 5000-7500 miles. If you live in Canada then a 10w30 or 5w40 might be a better idea.

The 10w30 version of the JD oil seems to be treating this guy well..
