For more than 100 years, the key to our success has been cutting-edge innovation. Our strong heritage in the diesel engine business includes not only Germany's MTU, but also North America's Detroit Diesel - two brands which dominated diesel engine engineering, innovation and manufacturing on their respective continents for most of the 20th Century.

Lets just throw Rolls Royce into the inbreeding mix too! MTU is a name I hear but have not actually come across one in real life. They are quite common in the world of large marine applications, large construction equipment, power generation, and fill a space in the over 1000 hp size I think. Maybe comparable to Cat's line of C27 and C32 V12, 16 and 20 cylinder engines and also the bigger series of 3500 V8, 12, 16 and 20 engines. So our farm equipment is getting close to that size range! These engines are a whole different level of long life design and with scheduled maintenance and a half life tuneup should reach 30,000 hours with no surprises. I recently saw a 3508 in genset application with 83,000 hours on it and still going.
