DEVELON showcases the DD100 dozer for demanding construction projects. The 10-metric-ton DD100 dozers are being produced at a manufacturing facility in South Korea. In June of this year,  DEVELON shipped its first DD100 dozer from South Korea to North America.

“It’s been an exciting 10 months since we announced our first dozer, then proceeded to manufacture our first DD100,” said Moo Young Park, engineering manager,  DEVELON North America. “We expect our dealers and customers to embrace the new  DEVELON dozers and to see more of them on jobsites yet this year.”

Looking ahead to 2023,  DEVELON plans to offer a larger model — the DD130 — in North America. The 13-metric-ton model is expected to launch in Q1 next year.

DD100 Highlights

DEVELON entered the North American dozer market with a smaller dozer size, competing in the 140 HP and under category. Designed for residential and light commercial construction, the dozer’s main task is fine grading.

“The under 140-hp size class presents the biggest opportunity for DEVELON based on North American dozer sales volume,” said Park.

This machine features a six-way variable angle pitch blade. Customers can choose from two blade options: a standard 2.9 cubic yard blade or an optional 3.4 cubic yard capacity blade. The blade moves freely to lift, tilt and angle, as well as offers two-way mechanical adjustments to change the blade pitch to control how steeply the blade will dig into the ground. Operators can adjust the blade pitch from 54° to 58°. Also available is a blade shake button for operators to remove materials stuck to the blade.


Advanced technologies in the new DD100 dozer deliver precision to help operators meet specifications. A 2D grading system option is available to facilitate precision grading. For further grading needs,  DEVELON offers a 3D machine guidance and machine control option in partnership with Trimble. The 3D system requires the installation of a second monitor in the cab and uses GPS technology. 

Electrohydraulic control is standard on this machine. Operators can customize the controls for their individual preferences. 

The DEVELON's telematics system is a standard feature on the DEVELON dozer. Operators can monitor the health, location and productivity of the dozer from a mobile app and website. The customer’s dealer can also see equipment status and notify them when it’s time for service.


One of the biggest differences between the DD100 dozer and other brands is the visibility of the machine’s blade. The front engine compartment of the DEVELON DD100 dozer offers a narrower design.

●      The pre-cleaner is tucked away in the engine compartment

●       The electronic cooling system was moved to the back of the dozer

●       The cab’s low-profile front pillars provide maximum glass area

●       All-glass doors provide a full view of the working environment

For visibility and safety, a standard rearview camera provides operators with an additional view of the dozer’s surroundings. Also standard are LED lights and four wiper blades.


A multilingual DEVELON Smart Touch screen displays all necessary settings and information on one screen. Operators can read the touch screen, monitor critical machine functions and control machine settings, such as the rearview camera, heating and cooling, radio and Bluetooth wireless technology. Operators have access to a hands-free audio system and can connect a Bluetooth device to play music. They can also answer phone calls using the hands-free mode.

A keypad located to the right of the operator has buttons for the operator to control the dozer’s wipers, air conditioning system, temperature control, fan speed, defrost, travel alarm and working lamp. A USB power socket and a 12V power socket for charging are also available.

For additional operator comfort, an adjustable armrest can be moved up or down. The dozer’s cab has a suspension system that dampens vibrations and provides protection against impact.

Fuel Consumption

The DEVELON DD100 dozer is powered by a 3.4-liter D34 diesel engine and does not require the use of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) to meet current emissions standards. Operators can select the dozer’s ECO mode to minimize fuel consumption up to 5% without sacrificing grading performance. This feature lowers the pump power output when working in lower tractive conditions.

Additional fuel-saving features include auto idle and auto engine shutdown. If the machine functions are not used for a predetermined period, the auto idle feature idles the dozer engine to reduce fuel consumption. When the operator moves the controls, the dozer automatically returns to the previous throttle setting.

The auto shutdown feature saves fuel and helps lower warranty hours. When the feature is enabled, the engine shuts down after it has been idling for a specified period. Default shutdown occurs after five minutes of idling but can be set for longer periods by the operator using the Smart Touch display.


One of the dozer’s primary features is its undercarriage design. DEVELON developed its dozer undercarriage system to help manage the total cost of operation. The design includes both single- and dual-flange rollers for durability and long life.

Customers can choose from several track guards for uptime protection. They include general-purpose and full guard options to fit various job site conditions. In addition, track shoe options are available to help distribute the load to the ground. Thinner tracks are used for rugged, rocky environments. A low-ground pressure option is available for sandy soil conditions.


An in-line pre-cleaner, which comes standard, helps improve filter life and is integrated with the air cleaner. Self-cleaning and maintenance-free, the intake system can expel a variety of debris, including mud, snow, rain, leaves, sawdust and chaff.

To help minimize fuel-related issues, DEVELON offers a filter-type high-performance water separator, which captures moisture in the fuel and reduces impurities. Standard pre-filters and dual main filters achieve a high degree of purity that minimize fuel system failures. The fuel filter water separator and the main fuel filter are accessible by lifting a panel on the front of the dozer.

Operators can access the following maintenance items from ground level:

●      Electronic main control valve

●       Diesel fill

●       Diesel exhaust fluid fill

●       Hydraulic oil fill

●       Fuel filter

●       Engine oil filter

●       Air cleaner

●       Battery

●       Windshield wash tank

When necessary, owners can tilt the dozer cabin to reach critical components. Even with the cab tilted, the dozer can be started while the machine is being diagnosed or repaired.

DEVELON DD100 dozers are designed with a hydraulically controlled cooling system and come standard with a reversible fan. Operators can set the fan to automatically reverse at a predetermined time interval. The cooling system is in the rear of the machine instead of the front.
