DEUTZ Corporation showed its growing range of engines at World of Concrete. This year's highlights were two new diesel engines (D1.2 / D1.7) in the sub-19-kW power range. DEUTZ Corporation is procuring them from Kukje Machinery Co. and will market them under its own brand name from the second quarter of 2019 onwards. The companies have signed a memorandum of understanding to this effect and are envisaging a long-term partnership. This agreement takes DEUTZ a further step closer toward creating a modular product kit and expands its offering in the sub-19 kW power range. The engines also open up opportunities for new applications and – together with electric and hybrid concepts – represent a further response to the current market trend toward downsizing.
