Engine program goes into overdrive

The DEUTZ Drive program has stepped up a gear with an additional engine selected and designed locally by DEUTZ Australia for our unique market requirements.

Testing has been completed on the new DEUTZ TCD2013 L06 2V engine to validate  power output, exhaust, and intake system designs.

The new engine selection will fill a gap in the DEUTZ Drive range and suit the Australian market. The low-noise TCD range is designed for various applications including Industrial, agricultural, and power generation markets in a range of environmental conditions.

DEUTZ Australia Dealer Development Manager Shane Moretto says engine testing was conducted at LK Diesel Service using the dealer’s dynamometer.

“The engine was put on the engine dyno … to carry out the required testing to prove the design of intake and exhaust confirming the designs meet the manufacturing limits and design,” he says.

“We tested for engine power output, air intake restriction and exhaust system back pressure.” 

The TCD2013 fills a gap between the 1013 and 1015 family of engines rated 190kw for continuous operation. It was developed and included in the DEUTZ Drive program due to client demand, but until now was not stocked as a DEUTZ Drive product. 

Currently there is stock available of the Base TCD2013 L06 2V power pack, which can be purchased by our authorised dealers and OEM customers.

Shane says the team is now finalising the design details of the local manufactured components and completing engineering drawings for the exciting project. 

“It is the first Tier 3 emission engine that has been included into the DEUTZ Drive range,” he says.
