Deutz Corp. signs long-term agreement with Kukje Machinery

 Kukje Machinery’s under 25-horsepower D1.2 and D1.7 engines will now be available throughout the Americas, through Deutz parts and service support that is already in place.

“The under-25 horsepower power category continues to grow as customers seek out more efficient powertrains for their equipment,” says Robert Mann, president and CEO of Deutz Corp. “We’re extremely pleased to enter into this agreement with Kukje and we know that the engines will be built with the high-quality standards that Deutz customers deserve and have come to expect.” 

The engines are naturally aspirated, three-cylinder configurations offered in 1.2L and 1.7L displacement with output ratings of up to 25 horsepower. The D1.2 and D1.7 can also be utilized with the new E-Deutz products by providing customers with complete hybrid packages that are more efficient and environmentally friendly

KUKJE Machinery, a leading industrial company in Korea, has been producing diesel engines for tractors and other industrial applications for more than 30 years. The company also manufactures and provides agricultural machinery, tractors, combine harvesters, rice harvesters and diesel engines to more than 50 countries. The company focuses on cutting-edge technology that will enhance its customers’ productivity.

“Our recently signed agreement is just one example of our ongoing efforts to provide engines that not only generate the right amount of power, but do so economically and efficiently,” says Steve Corley, chief sales officer for Deutz Corp. “Now, through this agreement with Kujke, we’ll be able to bring Deutz quality and performance to even more OEMs and their customers.”
