The History of Deutz-Fahr Tractors

In 1864, Nicolaus August Otto and Eugen Langen founded a company specializing in engine production. It wasn’t until 30 years later, in 1894, that the DEUTZ company in Philadelphia, United States, manufactured the first tractor with a gasoline engine, boasting 26 horsepower, marking the beginning of agricultural mechanization.
In 1927, the first DEUTZ MTH 222 tractor, powered by a diesel engine, was produced, signifying a breakthrough in mass production of agricultural tractors. Unfortunately, it wasn’t until 1936 that a small Deutz tractor with 11 horsepower became available on the market, gaining immense popularity among smaller farms transitioning to mechanization.
Another milestone in the brand’s history was the acquisition of Klöckner and the renaming to KHD in 1937, contributing to increased brand recognition. The company started producing engines for various vehicles, from cars to trains and tractors.
The 1940s and 1950s saw intensive development of the company’s product range. In 1949, the F1L514 and F2L514 models were introduced, the first tractors equipped with air-cooled diesel engines by DEUTZ. The year 1955 was pivotal as it marked the production of a total of 100,000 tractors. In 1961, collaboration with Fahr AG began, leading to the establishment of the DEUTZ-FAHR brand. The 06 series, born in 1968, achieved tremendous success.
Subsequent decades focused on technical advancements in tractors. In 1978, DEUTZ-DX tractors with power ranging from 80 to 200 horsepower were introduced, followed by the DX3 series in 1984 with power ranging from 46 to 75 horsepower. In 1989, AGROSTAR tractors with the world’s best soundproof cabins, ranging from 88 to 143 horsepower, entered production.
The merger with the SAME group in 1995 brought new development opportunities. The Agrotron TTV series in 2001 featured a continuously variable transmission, significantly enhancing user comfort.
The following years saw further development and customer recognition. In 2013, the 6 series and MaxiVision cabin won the prestigious German Design Award 2014. In 2018, the DEUTZ-FAHR LAND, Europe’s most modern tractor factory, was opened, reaffirming the brand’s position as a leader in innovation and quality in the agricultural industry.
