The trade magazine OEM Off-Highway has put the DEUTZ TCD 9.0 engine in fourth place in its list of the Top Ten New Products of 2017.
This prominent international publication reports on all topics related to the development of heavy-duty machinery in the off-highway sector. The rankings are based on the number of searches and page views made by users of the OEM Off-Highway Component Directory, its online purchasing resource.
The TCD 9.0 four-cylinder in-line engine, which was unveiled to the world at bauma China in Shanghai, is one of four new engines from DEUTZ that mark another significant extension to the upper end of its power range. The TCD 9.0, which produces 300 kW of power and 1,700 Nm of torque, forms part of a family of engines together with the TCD 12.0 (400 kW / 2,500 Nm) and TCD 13.5 (450 kW / 2,800 Nm) six-cylinder in-line engines. All three models work on the same platform, with a standardised customer interface and identical front and rear sides, making it considerably easier to integrate and service the engines. The proportion of common parts is approximately 65 percent, which reduces servicing complexity and optimises inventories. The 620 kW six-cylinder TCD 18.0 in-line engine, which generates 3,600 Nm of torque, will occupy the upper end of the power output range.
