DEVELON to appear at Galabau 2024


  • DEVELON, previously known as Doosan Construction Equipment, is set to debut at the GaLabau International Trade Fair in Nuremberg, Germany, from September 11-14, 2024.

  • The company will showcase a variety of compact construction equipment tailored for the gardening and landscaping sectors, including the DX100W-7 wheeled excavator and the DX27Z-7 mini-excavator.

  • The DX100W-7 is highlighted for its compactness, agility, and suitability for operations in restricted areas, featuring options for four-wheel steering and a crabbing mode.

  • The DX27Z-7, part of Develon's next-generation mini-excavators, offers a zero tail swing design ideal for confined spaces, while the DX20ZE-7 represents the company's first mass-produced electric-powered excavator.

  • Develon has expanded its compact equipment range over the past two years, now offering 13 models of mini-excavators and a selection of Compact Wheel Loaders for various applications.

  • The company emphasizes its commitment to the German market with the opening of a new company-owned store in Mannheim, featuring a modern customer and training center, demonstrating Develon's ambition to grow its presence in the German-speaking market.

DEVELON, formerly Doosan Construction Equipment, will make its first appearance at the 2024 edition of the GaLabau International Trade Fair from 11-14 September in Nuremberg, Germany. Develon will be represented at Galabau by dealers from its German dealer network, plus the new company owned store located in Mannheim serving the larger Rhein-Neckar and Rhein-Main area.


Develon will display and demonstrate a range of compact equipment for the construction and maintenance needs of the gardening and landscaping sectors, including the DX100W-7 10.7 tonne wheeled excavator offering a high performance solution for customers looking for a wheeled excavator designed primarily for local authority, amenity, urban and maintenance applications.

For this type of work, the DX100W-7 offers the best compromise between compactness and agility, complemented by excellent productivity and high-end comfort. It is very important that this type of machine can operate in very restricted areas, so the DX100W-7 can be equipped with the option of four wheel steering and a crabbing mode, with two wheel steering as standard.

Alongside the DX100W-7 at GaLabau will be the 2.8 tonne DX27Z-7, the first of the company’s next generation mini-excavator range with a new shared global styling. The zero tail swing design of the DX27Z-7 makes it ideal for work in confined spaces on construction, landscaping and utility projects.

Also the DX20ZE-7 Mini-Excavator is the first mass-produced electric-powered excavator manufactured by Develon. This 2 tonne model combines low-noise and zero emissions with the features and performance enhancements that are found on the next generation DX-7 family of mini-excavators.

New Compact Equipment Focus

Over the last two years, Develon has further developed the company’s range of compact equipment by expanding its choice of mini-excavators to now include 13 models from 1 to 10 tonne, with more to be added later this year. A range of Compact Wheel Loaders is also part of this dedicated compact focus with five models available for material handling, construction, agriculture and landscaping.

Further Growth & Commitment for German Market

In June 2023 Develon opened an interim Company Owned Store at Seckenheimer Landstraße in Mannheim, supporting customers on site with a well-equipped new rental fleet of the latest generation of construction machines, with a fast spare parts service, other services and with a wide range of new machines.

The branch will relocate to a new 10,650 m² site on Lembacher Strasse in Mannheim in the fourth quarter of 2024. A modern customer and training center with a demo area for machine tests will also be opened there.

Overall this shows Develon is moving much closer to customers and dealers and are committed to Germany as a long-term location and underlines it‘s ambitions to significantly expand it‘s presence and market position in the German speaking market.
