 The on-going successful partnership has led both DEUTZ and SDF to renew their collaboration with a long-term supply agreement, with not only the supply of engines, but also focuses on enlarging the service business between both companies. The supply agreement includes engines in both the sub-4 litre as well as the above-4 litre range. In addition to the supply of DEUTZ TCD 4.1, 6.1 and 7.8 engines, SDF will also be introducing a complete new tractor range equipped with the EU Stage V compliant DEUTZ TCD 3.6 engine in 2021. On the service side, there are new business opportunities, including the availability of X-change. The new collaboration is expected to generate annual sales in the mid double digit million Euro range. 

The words of Wellenzohn

«We are very pleased that the longterm supply agreement will help us to further strengthen and expand our partnership with SDF. The fact that SDF has chosen DEUTZ as a strategic partner in this cooperation underlines once again the success of our long-standing business relationship,» says Michael Wellenzohn, DEUTZ Board Member for Sales, Service and Marketing. 

SDF has identified DEUTZ as a partner recognised by dealers and customers worldwide. 

DEUTZ engines guarantee SDF tractors the best performance coupled with low operating costs as proven with the introduction of increased oil change intervals of the new DEUTZ-FAHR 8 Series which stands at 1000 hours. 

Another main factor in this collaboration is the perfect fit of the engines with the power train concepts of the existing DEUTZ-FAHR 5/6/7/8 and 9 Series as well as a new upcoming series in the mid and high hp range. The long-term collaboration between the two companies guarantees a high level of knowledge of these engines by the dealer network which, together with the best availability of spare parts, ensures maximum machine uptime. Finally, the flexible after treatment system ready for EU, EPA and LRC markets ensures SDF higher flexibility for future projects. 

And Bussolati’s satisfaction

«The proven historical track record together with the investments in new technologies and services convinced us to prolong this long-term partnership for the EU V emission regulation,» says Lodovico Bussolati, SDF Chief executive officer. «The high standards of quality and reliability and the low operating costs of DEUTZ engines in combination with the ones of our products, give our customers the opportunity to maximize operational efficiency, an essential requirement for the growth of their business.» 


FPT Industrial: let’s go, XC13
