This is narrated in German so I didn't understand a word but great video of Deutz equipment from way back to modern times.  13 minute long video and at mile marker 8:10 it shows a modern tractor with a 5 bottom plow on front and a 5 bottom plow on the back.  I never seen nutin like that before!  :thumbs:

enjoy!

Deutz has been the oldest engine factory in the world, founded 1864 by Nicolas Otto, the inventor of the Otto-engine. The "american adventure" was the first step to the end of DEUTZ. Today they are part of Same-DEUTZ-Fahr.

Through the 70's and early 80's, nothing beat a Deutz air-cooled diesel for fuel economy. Construction equipment, tractors, generators, and pumps using Deutz engines were a welcome part of any jobsite I was on. We had a couple of Perkins diesels that were close on fuel consumption, but the Deutz was a more reliable engine.

 Well during that same time we had Skidders with Duetz 5 cylinders and the same machines with Detroits , the duetz were much better on fuel , but longevity was horrid. Constantly replacing cylinders and heads. Just put fuel in the Scream'n Jimmies!! And the 2 Deeres' we had out pulled, out turned, all of  them ! The Cats that a buddy ran are still running !!! The Timberjacks were rugged, but turned horrible, were loud as h**!! and just as cold ! The Tree Farmers with the Deutz's were a little better , but engine issues were off the charts. Ditched them for Deere and never looked back.. Deeres' were AWSOME on fuel too !! thier powershift trans was nothing short of awsome! The lack of a torqueconverter made the very efficient ! Now the new ones almost all have a converter, and are not nearly as efficent.

For example: here I'm on a 1941 DEUTZ Bauernschlepper

on the 2007 tractor parade in Bad Arolsen.

In the background you see the court.
