From 7 to 11 March Deutz will be at ConExpo2017 in Las Vegas to present its expanded engine portfolio, now ranging from cubic capacities of 2.2 to 18.0 litres
This year Deutz will occupy a 220 square metre booth (South Hall, S-85230) where the American market will see the company’s new four-cylinder TCD 5.0 and TCD 9.0 diesel engines and the six-cylinder TCD 12.0, TCD 13.5 and TCD 18.0. The diesel and gas versions of the new three-cylinder TCD 2.2 and the gas variant of the well-proven four-cylinder TCD 2.9 will also be on display.
The Deutz TCD 5.0 will be introduced worldwide in 2019 to meet the next EU Stage V emissions standard. The engine will also comply with US Tier 4 final. This particularly compact turbocharged and charge air cooled five-litre cubic capacity diesel generates 100 to 150kW (135 to 200 hp) and 890Nm of torque. The engine also conforms to the downsizing principle, by producing more power from a smaller cubic capacity, enabling customers to replace larger displacement engines with a more fuel efficient compact four-cylinder engine. The TCD 5.0 is a brand new design; minimum pipework and fewer components are some stand-out features.
Another Deutz highlight at Las Vegas is the new TCD 9.0. This nine-litre cubic capacity four-cylinder diesel engine generates 200 to 300kW (300 to 400hp) and 1,700Nm of torque. Its highly compact design makes it easy to install in a wide variety of applications, excavators and wheel loaders in particular.
As Robert Mann, President & CEO of the Deutz Corporation, explains: “The expansion of our engine portfolio allows us to pursue new markets and expand our customer base. The TCD 5.0 enhances the strategically important range between 100 and 150kW (135 to 200 hp); in future, our TCD 9.0 to 18.0 family will offer powerful four- and six-cylinder engines for heavy-duty applications.”
Deutz is not only expanding the upper end of its power range, three new engines, covering the lower power range, are also being presented. Generating up to 56kW (75hp), the TCD 2.2, the three-cylinder variant of the successful four-cylinder TCD 2.9, will represent a further option, particularly in the material handling and compact construction equipment. Deutz is also introducing two liquefied petroleum gas versions (also known as LPG) of the TCD 2.2 and the TCD 2.9. The engines are designated G 2.2 and G 2.9 and are especially suitable for forklift trucks, industrial, stationary and compact construction equipment.
