Due to Deutz-Fahr starting to produce diesel tractors in 1927, a precedent was set and they were able to show that the mechanisation of the agricultural branch is the only way to raise the productivity of farmers. Furthermore, this insight led them to conclude that improved productivity of farmers can help the prosperity of a whole community. All of their technical developments were always based upon the needs of the farmers. ‘Simplicity’ and ‘stability’ are the properties which make Deutz-Fahr tractors stand out and it is also this technology which makes working the field more comfortable and simpler. With the invention of the ‘farmer’s tractor’, the Deutz 11 series, the mechanisation of agricultural work experienced its breakthrough in 1936. After this, new trends were set with the use of air-cooled motors (1950), controlled hydraulics (1958), the Intrac concept (1972), panorama design (1990), spacious panoramic cabins (1995) and the suspended front axle (1996). The rule was always: Everything that can help the farmer is worthwhile. The impressive closeness to customers and reliability of Deutz-Fahr can be shown when one knows that there are still well over 320,000 of their farmer’s tractors in use.
