I thought a fella named Diesel did that...

Rudolph Diesel designed the first diesel after seeing natives in polynesia using a similar principle to start fires.... I do believe JD is correct in that Deutz built the first production diesels.

If I had to pick offhand "What's the biggest diesel manufacturer?" I would say Cat.  After that I would say Deutz.  Then I would say Kubota.

 

If you have three triangles, though, as a logo I am stumped.

The three pointed star is Mitsubishi.

Mitsi has had an ongoing partnership with Cat since just after after WWII. MIitsi built engines for Cat, like the 3304, and now builds Cat's small engines. They also built all of Cat's excavators now.

I see three pages of guesses from a group I consider well informed. None of which  I would consider wrong.

 I can't help but wonder who is so well informed that they can say with authority  What Is The Most Well-Known Company For Their Diesel Engines? :smilewink:

I think it's the logo that would turn the tide here.  If the OP could find and post that logo, you'd probably see three pages of people saying "Oh, THAT company!"

 

OP, have you tried Google Images "diesel engine logos" ?

If you are talking world wide, it's most likely Isuzu.

 

They are one of the largest diesel manufacturers in the world.

Is there a way to verify any of these suggestion? It would be interesting to have a firm answer. 

Cummins claims to be the largest manufacturer of diesel engines over 200hp.

Hi Smitty,

 

Deutz was the first engine factory in the world, but I've been wrong with the first Diesel. The first Diesel production started at MAN. Then Rudolf Diesel went to Austria and worked at an other factory. Btw: The first air cooled Diesel engine was built by Eicher in Forstern.

It's as easy as to say who makes the best ... diaper, or whiskey, or plumpudding

LOL!!  Since I took diesel mechanics in college, and sold construction equipment parts, I was surprised at the number of diesels makes I'd never heard of.

 

Here are some other US manufacturers that haven't been listed:

 

Buda (bought by Allis Chalmers)

John Deere

Waukesha

Hercules

White

Murphy

General Electric

Fairbanks-Morse

Detroit Diesel

Ford (most made in Great Britain)

 

And, of course there's the non-US manufacturers:

MAN

BMW

Mercedes

Shibaura

Iseki

Lombardini

Hatz

IVECO

Scania

Volvo

Lister

Maybach

 

I know I haven't liisted them all--don't even know the names of the Russian, Czech, etc. companies.
