To achieve maximum performance in its engines only genuine DEUTZ oils and lubricants should be used, the manufacturer has pointed out.
TLS-15 W 40 D, for example, is a super high-performance oil for supercharged diesel engines, and diesel engines operating under high loads, which is fully compliant with DEUTZ Quality Class DQC 11-05. The viscosity SAE Class 15W-40 oil ensures problem-free, all-season operation without restriction.
There are several reasons for recommending only the use of genuine DEUTZ oil in its engines, and according to the company's UK Service General Manager, Mike Nugent, their oil delivers:
* A high level of protection against wear, even under permanent load conditions at full throttle;
* Protection against corrosion, even when using diesel fuels with high sulphur content;
* Guaranteed protection against deposits, sludge and sticking, both under extreme thermal loads and during intermittent operation;
* Rapid oil supply to all engine parts, reducing wear caused during cold start and warm-up;
* Low consumption through the use of low-volatility base oils, with oil service life prolonged and maximised by using the DEUTZ Oil Diagnosis System.
"DEUTZ engine oil is used exclusively on the test benches during the development of our engines, which is a guarantee of its suitability for everyday use," said Mike Nugent.
In order to achieve maximum performance, other types of oils should not be mixed with DEUTZ engine oil, he added.
"The admixture of commercially available additives will impair the performance of DEUTZ oil and is not something we recommend. Users should remember that the use of genuine DEUTZ oil can be a major factor in warranty claims."
As one of the world's leading independent diesel and gas engine manufacturers, DEUTZ produce around 286,000 units annually, with a turnover in excess of EUR 1.5 billion.
It has an overall engine range extending from 9kW to 500kW, with models suitable for wide variety of markets and applications, including the construction, quarrying, mining, materials handling, agricultural, groundcare, industrial and airport ground handling equipment sectors.
DEUTZ engines are widely used in excavators, wheeled loaders, access platforms, compactors, cranes, crushers, screeners, compressors, lift trucks, tractors, ride-on mowers, chippers, shredders, gensets and other off-highway mobile plant.
