Deutz’s US subsidiary, Deutz Corporation, Georgia (USA), exhibited from 23 to 26 January at World of Concrete 2018 which was held in Las Vegas. Among the engines showcased were the TCD 2.9, TCD 3.6 and TCD 4.1 models, which have been highly successful in the US market.
Deutz also gave details as to how it will be extending its portfolio in the higher output range from 2019, with four new in-line engines from 9 to 18l capacity. The TCD 9.0 four-cylinder engine delivers 300kW of power and generates 1,700Nm of torque. The TCD 12.0 and 13.5 are six-cylinder engines producing, respectively, 400kW of power and 2,500Nm of torque, and 450kW of power and 2,800Nm of torque. The new TCD 9.0, 12.0 and 13.5 models share a common platform concept with a high degree of parts commonality. This concept reduces the service and training complexity and simplifies spare parts stocking.
At the top of the range, Deutz showed the TCD 18.0 six-cylinder engine with 620kW and 3,600Nm. This is targeted particularly at heavy construction equipment with high power and torque requirements.
A further highlight was the Deutz Service Locator app. This gives customers of the Deutz Corporation in the US a means of quickly finding the contact details of their nearest authorised Deutz dealer. Visitors to the Deutz stand were also provided with information about genuine spare parts, the engine refurbishment program, lubricants and coolants and the Deutz Corporation’s value added services. The latter explained how the company provides rapid, customised drive solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of OEMs.
