The Deutz Tractor traces its history to Nicolaus August Otto who founded the Motorenfabrik N.A. Otto & Cie. In 1864 it became Klöckner-Humboldt-Deutz AG (KHD), and shortly afterward he and Eugene Langen invented the first four-stroke spark-combustion engine. Early engines were used as horse-drawn generators for power threshers and hay balers. Its first mass-produced tractor – the DEUTZ MTH 222 – was launched in 1927. And in 1936 they unveiled the DEUTZ 11 Series, bringing agricultural mechanization within reach of small farms for the first time.
During World War II, the Deutz Company converted water-cooled engines into air-cooled ones for better dependability for military equipment, and the air-cooled engine remained their hallmark until the 1990s.
In 1968 after Klockner-Humboldt-Deutz AG (KHD) group acquired FAHR, a leading agricultural equipment company, they re-branded as Deutz-Fahr.
DEUTZ-FAHR’s excellence has a long and specialized history in the manufacturing of harvesting machinery too. Fahr presented its first self-propelled combine harvester in 1952.
DEUTZ-FAHR has continued to excel in quality and innovations ever since with countless other contributions, such as the first “clear view” tractor, panoramic cabs, the market’s first suspended front axle, and a game-changing technological innovation in 2001 with the Agrotron TTV, its first tractor with a continuously variable transmission.
Many years have passed since the launch of the first mass-produced tractors. But even today, the DEUTZ-FAHR name still fires the imagination of farmers all over the world.
Acquisition of Klöckner, and company renamed to KHD: Klöckner – Humboldt – DEUTZ AG. This is now one of the largest groups in the Reich, covering every possible engine application: from cars and trucks to trains, ships, aircraft and tractors.
