Doosan Portable Power Introduces Doosan-Built Engine in Flagship Air Compressor Model

02/03/2015

STATESVILLE, N.C. — Doosan Portable Power, beginning with the P185 T4F air compressor, will begin integrating Doosan engines into its product lineup, enhancing machine performance, productivity and lifespan.

Development of the Doosan engine-equipped machines is a collaboration between Doosan Portable Power and parent company Doosan, which has 50 years of engine-building experience, developing engines across several industries for construction and industrial equipment, power plants, ships and automobiles.

“Doosan Portable Power is the only air compressor manufacturer to include a proprietary engine in its machine design,” said Josh Goodman, assistant product marketing manager, Doosan Portable Power. “This allows us to control the overall quality and the design of our products, passing those advantages on to our customers.” 

The new P185WDO air compressor is powered by a Tier 4 Final-compliant Doosan D24 engine with a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) aftertreatment system, which is virtually maintenance-free. The high-performance engine provides the P185 with reliable power and improved cold starting capability, while delivering a 7 percent increase in fuel efficiency compared to previous models.

Proving that power doesn’t have to mean loud, the P185 offers one of the industry’s lowest sound levels at 74 dBA. With the Doosan D24 engine at the helm, the P185WDO delivers 10 hours of runtime at 100 percent load and 500-hour service intervals.

The P185 is the most widely used model in the Doosan Portable Power air compressor lineup. With 100 psi at 185 cfm, the P185 meets the needs of a variety of applications, from powering handheld air tools, to sandblasting, sprinkler and irrigation line blow-out, cable laying and pipeline testing.

The P185 equipped with the Doosan engine will be available in March 2015, and includes a promotional 3-year / 3,000-hour Doosan engine warranty.

Doosan Portable Power plans to release more details on Doosan engine-equipped Tier 4 Final machines over the next 18 months.
