The Doosan Infracore Engine Business Group is introducing state-of-the-art compact diesel engine models — the D18, D24 and D34 — ranging from 1.8- to 3.4-liter displacement, and 50 to 110 horsepower and higher depending on configuration, for the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) market.
The new engines are compliant with both the stringent Tier 4 final standards in the United States and the European Union’s Stage IIIB & IV emissions standards, and will be marketed to OEM’s in the compact equipment industry. A leading producer of diesel engines since 1958, Doosan developed these compact engines to offer advanced environmentally-conscious technologies — specifically a non-diesel particulate filter (DPF) design — attractive to OEM’s because they provide advantages dealers and end-user customers want. The Doosan compact engines are designed for a wide range of construction equipment, agricultural machinery, and material handling products among others. The company first entered the OEM market in 2012 by partnering with Bobcat Company, a member of the Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment group.
Doosan’s value proposition is well-suited for OEM’s: The Doosan compact engines have been through extensive in-machine testing with customers in real working conditions; Doosan has an extensive history in engine manufacturing, and for compact engine development, they’ve partnered with credible industry engine development consulting firms; Doosan as an organization has a strong foundation and added experience in construction and industrial product manufacturing — the compact engines were developed in collaboration with top engineers from other Doosan brands, and strict manufacturing guidelines of those brands match up well with the Engine Business Group’s own standards.
