Develon’s DTL35 compact track loader was previewed at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 and is expected to be in production in 2024

Develon enters a new category of equipment in North America with its preview of the DTL35 compact track loader.

Formerly known as Doosan Construction Equipment, Develon made the announcement at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 in Las Vegas earlier this month.

Thomas Lee, director of product management at DEVELON, says the addition of compact track loaders is another sign of the company’s commitment to continue expanding its equipment offering to its dealers and customers in North America.

“Our lineup of construction equipment has grown considerably in the past five years,” Lee said. “Last year, we introduced our own line of mini excavators and our company’s first dozer.

“These popular earthmoving machines help our dealers provide a more robust line of Develon heavy and compact construction equipment to our customers. And now we’re growing our compact construction equipment with the addition of compact track loaders for the North American market.”

The 116-hp DTL35 is a large-frame compact track loader designed for high-performance grading and excavating. The compact track loader will come standard with a torsion suspension system, designed to provide a smooth ride for operators and durability for use on construction job sites.

Additional stability with lifting and carrying loads is another benefit of the torsion suspension system for the DTL35 compact track loader, according to the company.

Operators will be able to use a variety of attachments on the compact track loader. Optional high-flow auxiliary hydraulics — up to 40 gallons per minute — will be

available so the DTL35 can use attachments requiring additional hydraulic flow, such as asphalt planers, forestry cutters and breakers.

The machine’s cab is designed to provide operators with excellent visibility of the job site. A standard rearview camera gives operators better visibility to the attachment and their surroundings. An optional 360-degree all-around view monitoring (AVM) camera system will be available when the machine goes into production.
