Agriculture & Forestry

Reliable power from tractor engines to forestry equipment.
We supply our customers with technologically-advanced products that are proven in the field. Our range of products and services for off-highway applications is extensive and includes both standard and customized solutions.

Reliability is essential if you're working to cultivate fields and forests. We are experienced specialists in engines for agriculture and forestry equipment. As such, we provide reliable power for a range of agricultural machinery and farm vehicles, such as tractors, forage harvesters, combine harvesters, timber and forest harvesters - and their diesel engines ensure maximum performance in fields and forests, regardless of the conditions.

Our engines achieve high torque even at low speed. This ensures your agricultural vehicle has all the power it needs to do its work without any downtime or delay. From a large variety of different applications, there are often very special requirements placed on agriculture and forest machines.

Whether the need is for very light weight, extremely compact build or the ability to communicate with electronic controls, mtu engines can meet these demands without restrictions. One of the best ways to maximize profits in agriculture and forestry is via consistent streamlining and the use of extremely economical machines. High-performing and reliable mtu engines come with built-in efficiency, helping you secure these profits. Our Series 1000, 1100,1300 and 1500 agriculture engines are based on Mercedes-Benz technology and customized for off-highway use. These diesel engines range in power from 100-480 kW and have been specifically designed for agriculture and forestry applications and then further enhanced to meet EU Stage V regulations. With our Emission Flex Package and a wide range of emissions certificates, we offer the highest flexibility so you can use our newest engine generation all over the world without any adjustment of assembly space. Furthermore, the release of our engines for the use of paraffinic diesel fuels of the EN15940 standard enables almost CO2-neutral mobility on fields and roads.
