As with the existing larger models, the DL200-7 features a new Stage V-compliant engine and is designed to provide higher productivity, increased fuel efficiency and a low cost of ownership.

The loader is powered by the Perkins 1204J 4-cylinder Stage V engine with an output of 106kW (144hp) at 2200rpm. The after-treatment system is composed of a selective catalytic reduction module, an oxidation catalyst and a long-life particulate filter to reduce emissions.

The Doosan Smart Guidance System (DSGS) is a new feature which analyses the driving habits and behaviour of the operator and helps them to achieve the most fuel-efficient operation. The DSGS provides a score and guide (the Score-Graph) of the operator’s driving pattern to show fuel economy, efficiency and durability by category.

The new cab on the DL200-7 is designed to offer a greatly improved field of vision for the operator, with blind spots around the cab minimised and a 14% larger glass window area compared to the previous DL-5 model.

Inside the cab, there is an enhanced steering system and advanced electronic controls. Using the new Doosan Smart Key system on the control panel in the cab, the operator can start the machine using a keyless device, helping to prevent machine theft. The Smart Key system provides remote door control, door lock and unlock, door release, searching and other functions. The control panel also includes two USB sockets.

The new EMCV (Electric Main Control Valve) joystick fully integrated in the armrest is another standard feature in the cab, providing the operator with smoother and precise controllability of the lift arm and attachments on the loader. Features available via the EMCV system include Automatic Return-to-Dig, Bucket Tilt Kick-out and the Bucket crowd stop position and shock prevention for higher operator comfort.

Designed to give the operator more precise control with a shorter lever stroke, resulting in less fatigue, the sensitivity of the ergonomic joystick control can be set and altered according to operator preferences using the new Doosan Smart Touch system.

The touchscreen provides information including the feed from the rear-view camera, the HVAC controls (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), radio and  Bluetooth devices (music streaming, hands-free) and the operator help function.

The DL200-7 is equipped as standard with a third spool valve with settable flow and detent function, providing a constant flow for hydraulically driven attachments. A fourth spool valve is available as an option.

Operators can control hydraulic attachments via the proportional switch on the joystick. Various tyre options are also available from leading global manufacturers, covering a wide range of conditions and applications.

The standard bucket capacity on the DL200-7 is 2.0m3. The Z-kinematic lift arm delivers high breakout forces and lifting capacities, especially for heavy materials, and a large dump angle for efficiently unloading sticky materials. The DL200-7 is also available as an HL version, featuring a high lift arm and the 300 kg counterweight, where higher dump heights and increased versatility are required.

The LIS (Load Isolation System) provides a smoother ride and higher comfort for the operator, as well as higher productivity due to improved stability when the wheel loader is moving. The lift arm is cushioned by a hydro-pneumatic accumulator linked to the lift hydraulic system, acting as a shock absorber. This results in less stress on the structure of the machine, less shaking, no loss of material and higher travel speeds. The benefits include reduced cycle times, higher performance and better fuel efficiency while carrying out load and carry applications.
