Deutz and Takeuchi collaboration
By Joe Malone13 June 2016
Deutz has signed an agreement with Japanese company Takeuchi for its new TB295W wheeled excavator and TB2150 tracked excavator to be equipped with Deutz's TCD 3.6 diesel engine.
Deutz said the engines meet the Stage 4 emissions standards that currently apply in Japan, as well as EU Stage IV and US Tier 4 Final standards. The standard exhaust aftertreatment system also features a diesel oxidising catalytic converter (DOC) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR).
For more strictly regulated markets such as Switzerland and for municipal applications in Germany, a diesel particulate filter (DPF) is used. The DPF means the machines also meet EU Stage V, which will come into force in 2019.
Hiroshi Yokoyama, research and development general manager at Takeuchi, said, “We are delighted to be collaborating with Deutz on our Stage IV excavators.
“Modular exhaust aftertreatment is hugely beneficial for us and we are reaping the rewards from Deutz's experience in exhaust technology.”
Michael Wellenzohn, member of the board of management of Deutz with responsibility for sales/service & marketing, said, “We are delighted to have secured Takeuchi as a customer in the field of compact excavators.
“Takeuchi is among the most highly regarded manufacturers in this segment. Together we are looking ahead to a successful partnership.”
