Doosan’s flagship excavator at Hillhead
Doosan's DL420-5 wheeled loader can be seen at Hillhead
Doosan Bobcat EMEA will show a wide range of new generation products from the company’s Doosan heavy and portable power and Bobcat ranges for the first time at Hillhead.
This includes the first showing of the flagship DX530LC-5 52 tonne Stage IV-compliant excavator and the new Doosan DX255LC-5 25tonne crawler excavator.
Whilst overall dimensions are similar to the previous DX255LC-3 model, the DX255LC-5 Stage IV excavator combines greater power with a 500kg increase in operating weight, resulting in increases of up to 17% in lifting capacities over both the front and side and a 1dBA reduction in sound levels.
The top-of-the-range DL550-5 wheeled loader will be demonstrated for the first time in the UK, and as with the DX530LC-5, it is powered by the Scania DC13 engine, which is said to offer up to a 10% reduction in fuel consumption, and to meet Stage IV emission regulations without the need of a diesel particulate filter.
The same engine powers the new Stage IV DL420-5 wheeled loader on the stand, which like the DL550-5 is intended to meet a wide range of material handling needs from loading and transporting granular material such as sand and gravel to industrial, mining and quarrying applications.
