It's what you get with a warranty on John Deere Certified Used compact equipment.

Sometimes a used compact machine just makes sense. The price is right. Maybe you don't need all the latest bells and whistles. Or you urgently need another machine for a new project that has a tight budget. But you might have lingering doubts if a used machine will deliver the reliability you need. The John Deere Certified Used program gives you something rare in the used equipment market — peace of mind.


Through the John Deere Certified Used program, our dealers can provide you with high-quality, well-maintained compact equipment. To be certified, these machines must be three years or newer, or under 3,000 hours. Larger construction equipment must be five years or newer, or under 5,000 hours.


Each Certified Used machine must pass a strict 150-point inspection, including performance checks and fluid analysis. The inspections are performed by trained technicians and are thoroughly reviewed by the used equipment manager at eligible John Deere dealerships.


John Deere Certified Used machines are eligible for a factory warranty. Choose a six- or 12-month unlimited-hour warranty for the powertrain or hydraulic system — or both. See your dealer for complete warranty details.


Lease returns are a great source of used John Deere machines in good condition and with low hours. Deere dealers have access to hundreds of lease returns. See your local dealer for more information.


Most Certified Used machines are eligible for low-rate financing from John Deere Financial.
