Doosan wheel loader puts users in seventh heaven

Doosan’s new wheel loader comes with new features for comfort and fuel efficiency

Now available in Australia, the Doosan DL580-7 wheel loader boasts features the company says will “enhance performance at every level”.

Doosan says its new wheel loaders are designed for heavy-duty performance, with this model equipped with a Stage V-compliant 400hp (294kW) Scania DC13 engine.

An Automatic Idle feature reduces the engine revs to standby idle a few seconds after movement ceases on the steering wheel, gearshift control lever and accelerator – with an option for automatic shutdown after a specified length of idle time.

The DL580-7 has a 5-speed auto-powershift transmission with three operating modes – manual, fully automatic or semi-automatic with a kick-down function, as well as a modulation system for protection and smooth gear and direction changes.

With an operating weight of 35.7 tonnes, the wheel loader is fitted with heavy duty axles, with a hydraulic differential lock on the front axle that helps reduce the risk of skidding.

Both the DL580-7 and the smaller DL550-7 also feature a torque converter lockup which enables the engine to connect automatically to the transmission, giving it full engine power without hydraulic slip and increasing speed on slope, Doosan says.

The DL580-7 has a load-sensing hydraulic system with a maximum flow of 529 litres per minute, and comes with a 6.2 cubic metre capacity bucket as standard.

It also comes with special features inside the cabin to help save time and money – with a smart guidance system that suggests how to improve settings, as well as remote door opening and keyless engine start.

A redesigned interior offers a more comfortable operator environment, with increased leg room, an enlarged storage area and improved air conditioning system, alongside a redesigned cab with a larger windscreen and mirrors.
