This story was updated August 12, 2022, with new information about delivery of the first dozer.

Known primarily in the U.S. for its excavators and wheel loaders, Doosan is entering new territory in construction equipment with its first ever dozers.

In this episode of The Dirt, we talk about Doosan Infracore North America’s new dozer offerings for later this year and next year.

Doosan recently delivered its first dozer, a DD100, to a Best Line Equipment customer in Pennsylvania. 

The 9-metric-ton machine is among the first Doosan dozers to arrive in North America, and it’s the first DD100 to be delivered to a customer: Ratoskey and Trainor Inc.

The company sells topsoil, mulch and other products to customers in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

A 13-metric-ton DD130 dozer is expected to hit the market in 2023.
