DEVELON - formerly Doosan Construction Equipment - has entered the European dozer market, with the launch of the 15,300kg DD130 model.

The DD130 offers a wide range of features, resulting in a productive fine-grading solution for residential and light commercial construction projects. 

One of the biggest advatages of the DD130 is the visibility it provides of the machine’s dozer blade. To facilitate this, the front engine compartment offers a narrower design to make it easier for operators to see their work. Other aspects of the DD130 that provide optimum visibility include:

  • The precleaner is also tucked away in the engine compartment to maximize front visibility.
  • Relocating the electronic cooling system to the back of the dozer further improves front visibility.
  • The cab’s low-profile front pillars provide maximum glass area.
  • The all-glass doors provide a full view of the working environment.

For further visibility and safety, a standard rearview camera provides operators with an
additional view of the dozer’s surroundings. 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.

The DD130 offers a high level of comfort, with a premium high-quality seat. The operator has total control of the machine via two electronic joysticks. The seat and joysticks move together via the air suspension system to absorb all vibrations.

Advanced technologies in the DD130 dozer help operators meet exacting specifications. A 2D grading system (dozing assist) makes precision grading easier, even for novice operators. The operator programs the needed inputs, and the machine controls blade functions to finish the job faster and with better accuracy. No GPS or lasers are required.

The DD130 comes standard with an electronically operated tilting cab that provides access to internal components. Even with the cab tilted, the dozer can be started while the machine is being diagnosed or repaired.

A telematics system is fitted as standard, making it easy for DEVELON customers to remotely monitor the health, location and productivity of the dozer from a user-friendly mobile app and website. The customer’s DEVELON dealer can also see the equipment status and notify them when it is time for a service to minimise machine downtime.
