Deutz Corporation and Kukje Machinery of Korea have entered a long-term agreement to expand Deutz’s line of under-25-hp engines. As a result of this agreement, D1.2 and D1.7 engines will now be available for delivery throughout the Americas, with Deutz parts and service support already in place.

“The under-25-hp power category continues to grow as customers seek out more efficient powertrains for their equipment,” said Robert Mann, president and CEO of Deutz Corporation. “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 HP. 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, an industrial company in Korea for many years, 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 over 50 different countries.

“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,” said Steve Corley, chief sales officer for Deutz Corporation. “Now, through this agreement with Kukje, we’ll be able to bring Deutz quality and performance to even more OEMs and their customers.”
