About Doosan

The world’s leading value forklift brand


All Doosan forklifts are designed with a simple ethos – to make Doosan machines the best value on the market. That means using proven technology and rugged, durable components to ensure low lifetime operating costs and minimal maintenance.

By adding high specification features, and proven technology, Doosan’s aim is to increase productivity whilst lowering equipment lifetime costs. The latest 7 series range of internal combustion (IC) products are the cornerstone of their operations and include the most important features as standard, such as oil-cooled disc brakes and integral side-shifts, along with a whole host of safety features.

Doosan 7-Series IC trucks are available in a range of capacities and chassis configurations from 1.5 to 25.0-tonnes for our Diesel range, and 1.5 to 7.0-tonnes in our LPG range forklifts.

The Signature features of Doosan forklifts include:

  • AC Technology on all electric models.
  • Oil cooled disk brakes provide excellent long term response, in any application – wet or dry. 10,000 hour service life means there’s minimal maintenance and therefore minimal cost.
  • Integrated sideshift is another standard Doosan feature usually offered by competitors as a costly extra.
  • Reliable, powerful and well proven engine and transmissions.
  • Comprehensive 3 Years manufacturer’s warranty. Doosan’s own research suggests that their machines offer the lowest lifetime costs. Despite this, the company still offers one of the best warranties around, giving even greater peace of mind. The warranty comes as standard covering parts and labour.

Founded over 110 years ago, Doosan now employs over 43,000 people in 38 different countries and has annual revenues in excess of US$40.6-billion, making it one of the largest corporations in Korea.
