Doosan will showcase the company’s brand new DL-7 range of wheel loaders for the first time at World of Concrete 2021 in the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, USA from 8-10 June 2021. Representative of the new DL-7 range, a DL380-7 wheel loader will be exhibited on the Doosan Stand Number W1302 in the West Hall at the Convention Center.
“The updates in the DL-7 wheel loaders are the result of more than a decade of customer feedback,” says Aaron Kleingartner, dealer and product marketing manager. “We are eager to see the excitement the DL380-7 generates at World of Concrete. This is a milestone product launch for Doosan.”
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. This increases customers’ capabilities in a variety of traditional earthmoving applications. In addition, 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 says. “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.”
Doosan Excavator Also on Display
Doosan will also showcase a 14 tonne crawler excavator, the 109 HP DX140LC-5. This 14 tonne machine is among the most popular excavators in the Doosan line-up, especially for smaller residential site preparation. 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 DX140LC-5 and reduced tail swing DX140LCR-5 models remain some of our bestselling excavators,” Kleingartner says. “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.
