The manufacturer says this is the first kit of its type for its wheeled loaders and is designed to help operators work safely in the hazardous conditions that often accompany waste handling and recycling applications, including contending with airborne dust, dirt and other dangerous particulates and materials.
The kit is available for all Doosan wheeled loader models from the DL200-7 through to the DL480-7, which is the segment of the Doosan range that is most widely used in this kind of environment.
The main features of the Waste and Recycling Kit include windshield guards, rim covers, road light protection (front + rear), arm cylinder cover, articulation guard, front frame cover, belly protection (front + centre + rear), air intake mesh, wider fin air conditioner condenser, and solid tyres.
Several of the features will be available as options, so customers can choose a kit of their choice to tailor their wheel loaders for their specific applications. Doosan is also preparing an aftermarket version of the kit for those customers who decide to install the kit at a later date.
Doosan comments: "The waste and recycling kit perfectly matches with other features of the DL-7 range, such as the air compressor, high lift arm, quick coupler, Transparent bucket and more. For maximum performance and versatility all of the new DL-7 wheeled loaders are equipped as standard with a 3rd spool valve with settable flow and detent function, providing a constant flow for hydraulically driven attachments."
It adds that the new kit created great interest among visitors to the Doosan stand at bauma, where it was shown for the first time, installed and displayed on a new generation DL280-7 wheeled loader.
