Aaron Kleingartner, dealer and product marketing manager at Doosan, says: “The updates in the DL-7 wheel loaders are the result of more than a decade of customer feedback. We are eager to see the excitement the DL380-7 generates at World of Concrete. This is a milestone product launch for Doosan.”
Doosan says a new look and all-new, redesigned cabs with enhanced comfort features, increased bucket capacities and new fuel-saving technologies are highlights of this next generation of Doosan wheel loaders.
Every DL-5 Series Doosan wheel loader will eventually be replaced by a DL-7 Series machine — from the DL200-7 to the DL580-7.
The new DL380-7 — a replacement for the DL350-5 — features an axle upgrade allowing customers to carry and lift larger load capacities.
According to Doosan, this increases customers’ capabilities in a variety of traditional earthmoving applications.
In addition, the company insists that a larger standard bucket provides up to 7% larger capacity than the previous model for faster, easier loading to help customers finish their jobs in fewer passes.
“Our new DL-7 Series wheel loaders are designed to work in demanding applications,” Kleingartner continues. “They’re built with a durable and rugged box frame that’s meant to endure harsh working environments. Added material strengthens each section for better balance and improved lifting capacity.”
Dooson will also exhibit a 14 tonne crawler excavator, the 109 HP DX140LC-5.
Its size makes it attractive to contractors who need an excavator larger than a mini-excavator but still want the versatility of a relatively small crawler model, the company adds.
“The DX140LC-5 and reduced tail swing DX140LCR-5 models remain some of our bestselling excavators,” Kleingartner explains.
“For customers who work in traditional earthmoving applications, the 14 tonne machine provides additional dig depth and reach from a slightly larger model than a mini-excavator. And the machine’s steel tracks make them appealing for enhanced traction and added stability when used for lifting applications.”
The DX140LC-5 excavator has a maximum digging depth of 6135 mm and a maximum digging reach of 8665 mm. A rearview camera comes standard and a sideview camera is an option. Operators can see both views with the split-screen mode on the display inside the cab.
