Doosan Infracore signs deal to supply small tractor enginesDoosan Infracore, a machinery subsidiary of Doosan Group, said Sunday that it has signed a deal with Daedong to supply tractor engines. The engine is a small-diesel G2 3.4-liter model D-34. The company said it will supply 6,300 G2s in next five years.
The G2 is an environmentally-friendly and fuel-efficient engine developed by the company in 2012. It conforms to North America’s Tier 4 Final and Europe’s Stage IV emission standards. “We heard from Daedong that it will consider us first when it purchases additional machines including the one that operates based on a 3.0-liter engine later,” said a spokesman of the company.
The company is currently trying to boost its sales in the agricultural implement area. In November, it was selected to provide engines for Germany’s Kion, the world’s No. 2 forklift maker. The company said it planned to boost the sales of G2 engines from last year’s 37,000 to 100,000 units until 2020.
