Develon, formerly known as Doosan construction equipment, offered visitors to Conexpo a preview of its new DTL35 compact track loader, the latest addition to the company’s lineup of compact construction equipment.
The 116-horsepower compact track loader is the company’s first entry in this product category for the North American construction market. Thomas Lee, director of product management at Develon, said the addition of compact track loaders is another sign of the company’s commitment to its dealers and customers in North America to continue expanding its equipment offering.
“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 Develon DTL35 is on the large frame size of compact track loaders from a horsepower perspective, making it a high-performance grading and excavating machine. The compact track loader will come standard with a torsion suspension system, providing a smooth ride for operators and durability for use on construction jobsites. Additional stability with lifting and carrying loads is another benefit of the torsion suspension system for the DTL35 compact track loader.
Operators will be able to use a variety of attachments on the compact track loader, one of the biggest selling points of the compact loader industry. Optional high-flow auxiliary hydraulics — up to 40 gallons per minute — will be available for the DTL35 for enhanced performance with attachments like asphalt planers, forestry cutters and breakers that require additional hydraulic flow.
The machine’s cab is designed to provide operators with excellent visibility of the jobsite. A standard rearview camera gives operators better visibility to the attachment and their surroundings. An optional 360-degree all-around view monitoring camera system will be available when the machine goes into production.
