Doosan Construction Equipment says a range of new features are now available as standard on all five of its large wheeled loaders.
The features on the DL300-5, DL350-5, DL420-5, DL450-5 and DL550-5 models aim to increase safety and visibility in and around the operator’s cab. For example, a new handrail with three holding points has been installed around the cab roof; a new large step and access platform is added on the front of the cab, and a change in the wiring routing allows the horn to be repositioned below the road light. Inside the cab, a new ergonomic joystick control with a progressive thumb wheel has been added for the auxiliary hydraulic line.
Forward-neutral reverse (FNR) control has been relocated on the back of the joystick via a three-position rocker switch.
A rolling sunshield added on the rear window avoids any disturbance from sunlight during operations; the cup holder has been relocated to the front right of the cab, and a new double hanger hook has been added.
The operator also benefits from additional convex mirrors installed on the lateral mirror frames for safer manoeuvring of the wheeled loader on site and in the quarry. A new external steel tool box has been installed on the wheeled loaders, and there is a new shape lockable steel cap on the transmission oil filler of wheeled loaders.
“These new features complement the outstanding productivity and fuel economy offered by the Doosan wheeled loaders, where existing features include the high comfort cab,” says Doosan.
Doosan has also implemented a restyling for all 12 models in its wheeled loader range, and this involves a change of colour, from orange to dark grey, for the front lift arm, front frame and front and rear axle components.
