Engine donated to PCC Ag Power Program

07 September 2018

The Pratt Community College Agriculture Power Technology department recently received a John Deere TO 4045 D 809400 Type 4045df 150 engine through a donation by Don Hildebrand.

The engine is complete with a clutch, radiator, and stand. It used a lot of oil, so it was replaced by electric drive.

“The engine will be disassembled by students to analyze why it uses oil, if possible, and research ways to reuse it,” said Ag Power Instructor Ralph Williams.

Pratt Community College’s Agriculture Power Technology program welcomes the experience and leadership of new instructor, Ralph Williams.

Williams was hired late in the 2018 spring semester and will begin teaching this fall. He received his diesel mechanic training at PCC before being hired onto Mid-Co Implement. He was able to work in the John Deere profession for over 30 years before coming back to PCC to teach what he loves.

Before becoming a diesel mechanic, Williams had a different career path in mind.
