Develon launches new dozer for European market
09 November 2023
Develon, formerly Doosan Construction Equipment, has entered the European dozer market with the launch of the new DD130 model.
The DD130 dozer offers a range of features including a productive fine-grading solution for residential and light commercial construction projects.
The 2D grading system, also known as dozing assist, is said to be able to aid the user during the process of precision grading. The user enters the necessary inputs, and the machine automatically controls the blade functions, thereby completing the job without the need for GPS or lasers.
The company says that the DD130, with an operating weight of 15,300 kg, provides increased visibility of the machine’s dozer blade. To facilitate this, the front engine compartment has a narrower design to make it easier for users to see their work.
According to Develon, other aspects of the DD130 that provide increased visibility include relocating the electronic cooling system to the back of the dozer and a standard rearview camera. The full-colour, 8-inch Smart Touch display shows the feed from the rearview camera. Also standard are high-illumination LED lights and four premium wiper blades.
A telematics system is also a standard feature on the DD130 dozer. Users are able to monitor the health, location and productivity of the dozer from a mobile app and website. The user’s dealer can also see the equipment status and notify them when it is time for a service to minimise machine downtime.
