In 1969, KHD purchased the KÖLA company, a German-based manufacturer of combines.

Other joint ventures or cooperations included the Agrale-Deutz, with the Agrale tractor company; collaborations with the Indian Kirloskar company, manufacturer of engines and tractors; MeMo, a German company that exported Deutz-based tractors to the USA; PMA (CMT and Cirta) in Algeria; owned 30% of the Steiger company after International Harvester sold out; Torpedo, which built licensed tractors, sometimes under the Torpedo Deutz name; and trac-technik, (derived from Deutz Intrac's).

In Canada, Deutz-Fahr tractors were sometimes sold under the Co-op Implements name through a co-operative of dealers.

KHD moved to grow the company with the purchase of the assets of the Allis-Chalmers company in 1985, which included the Gleaner combines. Allis-Chalmers traces its roots to the Monarch, Advance-Rumely and Gleaner companies. With the merger/purchase, the Allis-Chalmers name was 'retired', and it became Deutz-Allis.

KHD and Deutz-Allis struggled financially, and Deutz-Fahr sold the North American operations to a newly formed group, the Gleaner-Allis Corporation, later changed to Allis Gleaner Corporation, or AGCO, in 1990.

Deutz-Fahr continued having problems, and sold the Argentine operations to AGCO in 1997, including the Argentine engine business, now known as Deutz AGCO Motores.

In 1995, KHD sold Deutz-Fahr to S-L-H, or SAME, which renamed itself SAME Deutz-Fahr (SDF). The combine business was discontinued and out-sourced to AGCO. All Deutz-Fahr combines were then built at AGCO's Dronningborg factory in Denmark.

SDF purchased the Deutz AG engine business from the former KHD in 2003, and then purchased the Ðuro Ðakovic combine business in Croatia, which built combines licensed from Deutz-Fahr.

DF had a joint venture in Argentina and built combines under the Deutz-Araus brand. AGCO later discontinued that brand and sold the Araus name to the Metalfor company.
