Innovation Update for Recycling Applications

Doosan Infracore Europe, a global industry leader in engineering and manufacturing compact and heavy construction equipment, has launched a new Waste and Recycling Kit for the company’s DL-7 range of wheel loaders.

As reported, it is the first kit of its type for Doosan wheel 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.

Numerous features
Available for all Doosan wheel loader models from the DL200-7 through to the DL480-7 the kit’s main features 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
  • Solid tires

Several of these features will be available as options, so customers can choose a kit to tailor their wheel loaders for their specific applications. Doosan is also preparing an aftermarket version for those customers who decide to install it at a later date.

Doosan’s mission is to empower customers to do their jobs more efficiently and effectively. Therefore, apart from choosing from a number of extra features, the operators will also be able to work more safely and confidently on job sites. In addition, Doosan is providing a wider fin air conditioner condenser as standard to facilitate easy cleaning and maintenance.

Moreover, all of the new DL-7-wheel loaders are equipped as standard with a 3rd spool valve with settable flow and detent function, providing a constant flow for hydraulically driven attachments. That guarantees maximum performance and versatility.

Increased productivity
Like all DL-7-wheel loaders, the DL200-7 to DL480-7 models feature redesigned buckets offering up to 7% more capacity for easier and faster loading with standard bucket capacities from 2.0 to 4.8 m3. That provides increased productivity for a wide range of material-handling applications.

Apart from the waste and recycling industry, these include the transport and delivery of soil, sand, aggregates, and other materials and applications in construction, demolition, mining and quarrying. Doosan is also offering a wider choice of options to provide more work tools for a better match with applications, further increasing output. According to the company, the upgraded hydraulic system and major parts ensure improved durability and maintainability. The high reliability and quality of the new DL-7-wheel loaders are backed up by a standard full 3-year/5000-hour warranty. 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 wheel loader.
