Bobcat announces non-DPF Tier 4 engine offering

Supplier News

The plan will include a Doosan-built engine.

| October 22, 2012

WEST FARGO, N.D. – Bobcat Co. has announced a plan for Tier 4 solutions that include a Doosan-built engine added to some of its equipment lineup for 2014. Development of the new Tier 4-compliant engine was a collaboration between Bobcat, Doosan and some of the world’s top engineering consultants and engine design firms – Ricardo, FEV and others.

“These new Tier 4 solutions combine Doosan’s 50 years of engine-building experience with Bobcat’s 50 years of compact equipment leadership,” said Rich Goldsbury, Bobcat president. “Add to that the combined experience of our other partners, and you have more than 200 years of experience in engine design and development, and compact equipment expertise.”

The Doosan-built engine is a non-DPF (diesel particulate filter) engine. Bobcat engineers have worked together with Doosan, and the engineering consultants and engine design firms to develop these engines that offer non-DPF Tier 4 technology.

“With these additional engines, Bobcat will be a market leader in non-DPF Tier 4 technology,” Goldsbury said. “Our customers and dealers prefer it, and it minimizes long-term Tier 4 parts and maintenance expenses.”

Doosan – Bobcat’s parent company – started building engines in 1958, and since then has developed engines across several industries for construction and industrial equipment, power plants, ships and automobiles.
The new Tier 4 Doosan engines will be available in Bobcat machines that meet Tier 4 horsepower requirement ranges sometime in early 2014.

Over the next 18 months, Bobcat plans to release more details on the Bobcat Tier 4 machines and their engines, along with additional and features and solutions that will benefit customers.
