Tue December 07, 2021 - National Edition #25 CEG/Doosan
Doosan Infracore North America introduced its new products for 2022 during a media event at its Real Operations Center (ROC) in Arizona the first week of December.
The company's next generation crawler excavators, mini-excavators and new -7 series wheel loaders were featured in presentations by the respective product specialists.
Doosan also unveiled its DD100 dozer, which it said will be available through dealers in 2022.
Technological upgrades also were introduced, including the "Transparent Bucket."
The transparent bucket is a system that allows the wheel loader operator to see blind spots in front of the bucket through the monitor in the cockpit. The innovative system records images in front of the wheel loader with cameras installed at the top and bottom of the equipment and shows combined images in real time using a curved projection method.
The front of the wheel loader has been considered an area prone to major safety issues due to its blind spots. With the transparent bucket function, however, the operator can easily check the blind spot in front of the bucket through the monitor and prevent accidents. Another advantage is that it can significantly improve work efficiency by enabling a forward-view perspective during loading/unloading or when carrying soil and sand, according to the manufacturer.
About the New DD100 Dozer
Doosan's 122-hp DD100 dozer delivers powerful pushing performance, fuel efficiency and all-day operator comfort, according to the manufacturer. The DD100 features a dual/single flange-type roller with several track guard options.
Designed with operators in mind, the DD100 features the 8-in. Smart Touch display, giving operators complete control from a convenient, easy-to-read touch screen. It also offers enhanced 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 features a Doosan engine with convenient maintenance access points and does not require the use of a diesel particulate filter to meet current emission standards. Doosan DD100 owners can add the 3D Machine Guidance and 3D Machine Control features as an option for greater accuracy and ease of operation.
