MTU has launched a new Web site (www.2-cycle.mtu-online.com) dedicated exclusively to 2-cycle diesel engines and their proper maintenance.
While the brand name on the engine may say Detroit Diesel, the support for that 2-Cycle engine is actually provided by MTU and its global network of authorized distributors. This name difference has caused some customer confusion, leaving 2-Cycle owners to wonder about the availability of factory parts and service for these legacy engines.
“The 2-Cycle business is alive and well,” says MTU 2-Cycle parts product planning manager Lisa Farrens. “Many customers have been led to believe that Detroit Diesel doesn’t do 2-Cycle anymore. However, we want to spread the word that MTU does 2-Cycle and we support it with the highest standards and most progressive programs.”
