Deere and Deutz Team Up on Lower Power Engine Range

Deere and Deutz Team Up on Lower Power Engine Range

John Deere Power Systems and Deutz plan to jointly develop and source components for a low horsepower range engine up to 130kW (174 hp).

Working together, the two companies look to close a gap in the market by developing an engine that provides exceptional value on initial purchase while also retaining the reliability, versatility, and performance customers expect from John Deere and Deutz engines.

Deere and Deutz bring different perspectives and capabilities to the table, so the collaboration lets the two companies broaden their supply base and benefit from global scale. They believe that the collaboration will ultimately translate to increased market and customer value.

The co-development and co-sourcing scope includes engine hardware and design, from which each company will customize its product to meet customers’ specific needs through engine software and controls.

Each of the two companies will manufacture and distribute its engines independently.

“John Deere and Deutz are both industry leaders in designing and manufacturing innovative power systems,” said Pierre Guyot, senior vice president, John Deere Power Systems. “Through combining our complementary knowledge-sets and focus areas, we are excited to offer John Deere and Deutz customers a reliable, cost-effective engine option in the low horsepower range.”

Deutz CEO Frank Hiller said, “The fact that John Deere chose DEUTZ as a collaborator for this engine project underlines our strong position in off-road engine applications.” He added, “This collaboration is an important step in establishing a business relationship between the two companies. We are very excited about the opportunity to join forces with an industry leader like John Deere, thereby creating value for our customers.”
