Doosan is breaking into new territory in 2022 with the introduction of its first line of dozers. They’ll complement the company’s existing earthmoving offerings, as well as new products which include a brand new line of mini excavators.

To start with, the new 122-hp DD100 dozer is designed for the most demanding conditions and features a dual/single flange-type roller with several track guard options. It has an 8-in. Smart Touch display, giving operators complete control from a convenient, easy-to-read touch screen.

The new dozer also offers optimal visibility with minimized front pillars, maximum glass area and a standard rearview camera - plus LED lights and front, rear and side wiper blades.

The DD100 is powered by a Doosan engine with convenient maintenance access points and does not require the use of a diesel particulate filter to meet current emission standards.

Owners can add the 3D Machine Guidance and 3D Machine Control features as an option for greater accuracy and ease of operation.

Doosan dozer customers will notice similarities in the cabs and instrumentation between the dozers and Doosan wheel loaders and excavators, Doosan said. This can provide a seamless transition for operators from one machine to the next.

Next generation mini excavators

A completely new lineup of mini excavators is also coming from Doosan in 2022, including three models not previously offered to customers in North America.

For the first time, the DoosanCONNECT Telematics management system is available as standard equipment on each new Doosan mini excavator.

The 6,168 lb., 24.7 hp DX27Z-7 mini excavator is a new size class for the North American lineup. This model has a dig depth of 8 ft. 8 in., 14-ft. 10-in. reach and 10-ft. 1-in. maximum loading height.

The DX27Z-7 features a new rearview camera which allows an operator to navigate a full 360 degrees on job sites. Other features include a 3-ft. 7-in. standard thumb-ready arm and an 11.8-in. rubber track undercarriage.

A machine of this stature - just 60 inches wide - can fit in many confined job sites.

Standard attachments include a bucket, quick coupler and a thumb. Customers can add second auxiliary hydraulics as an option for attachments that require additional hydraulic flow.

For its part, the 8,807 lb., 24.7-hp DX35Z-7 mini excavator features a Zero Tail Swing design with a rounded shape, making it easier to navigate on confined or crowded work sites. It digs to 11 ft. 4 in., reaches 17 ft. 9 in. and loads to a height of 12 ft. 2 in. It’s supported by a large auxiliary hydraulic flow when using attachments.

Other new features include an efficient Doosan diesel engine, a wider cabin for added comfort and a high luminous LED lamp for improved visibility in low-light conditions.

An enclosed cab, new heating and cooling system, 5.7-in. full-color LCD monitor are standard. Available options include a rearview camera, cast counterweight, second auxiliary hydraulics and long-arm design.

Finally, the 12,121 lb., 48.8-hp Doosan DX50Z-7 mini excavator is part of the 5-metric-ton size class. Its Zero-Tail Swing design makes it ideal for customers working in confined spaces on construction job sites or landscaping projects. It digs to 11 ft. 5 in., reaches 19 ft. and can load to a height of 12 ft.6 in.

An enclosed cab with heat and air conditioning comes standard, while a heated adjustable seat is available as an option.

Customers can upgrade to a steel track option for use in job site conditions that may otherwise damage rubber tracks. Standard attachments for the DX50Z-7 mini excavator include a bucket, quick coupler and thumb.
