With the addition of Doosan’s DLA wheel loader series to the range some three years ago, the company has significantly increased its position in the South African wheel loader market.
Advanced digging power: The DL420A wheel loader is equipped with an 11 ℓ Doosan DE12TIS engine (210 kW at 2 100 rpm).
“Doosan, which has been manufacturing heavy earthmoving equipment for over 40 years, has an ongoing development programme to manufacture robust machines with advanced design features and high performance materials for optimum productivity, reduced running costs and low emissions,” say Chris Whitehead, MD DISA Equipment (Pty) Ltd, trading as Doosan, part of Invicta Holdings Ltd.
The DLA series, which encompasses five wheel loaders – DL200A, DL250A, DL300A, DL420A and DL550A – have bucket capacities between 2,0 m3 and 4,5 m3, with optimised breakout force and machine balance. The operating weight of these wheel loaders has been increased, with greater tipping load capacities.
The environmentally-friendly machines are driven by Doosan Tier 2 engines, which are less sensitive to fuel quality than Tier 3 engines, yet still offer reduced fuel consumption and low exhaust emissions.
