Doosan add more new products for Bauma 2013

Doosan DX490LC-3 excavator

Company to introduce new crawler excavators and a range of attachments for wheel loaders and excavators

DOOSAN Construction Equipment have confirmed that more new products will be on show for the first time on the company’s stand at Bauma 2013. These include the new 42-tonne DX420LC-3 and 49-tonne DX490LC-3 large Stage IIIB-compliant crawler excavators and the new Doosan Heavy Attachment range for use on Doosan wheel loaders and excavators.

The new DX420LC-3 and DX490LC-3 excavators offer several improvements, including a substantial boost in power, resulting in significant increases in performance specifications such as drawbar pull, arm and bucket digging forces and lifting capacities, to provide much higher overall productivity.


The DX420LC-3 excavator is powered by the Isuzu AL-6UZ1X common-rail six-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine which meets Stage IIIB engine emission regulations through the use of exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and diesel particulate filter (DPF) after-treatment technologies. The new engine delivers 19% more power (270kW) at 2,000 rev/min with a 6% increase in engine torque. A new travel device in the DX420LC-3 excavator contributes to a 10% increase in drawbar pull, a 5% increase in swing torque and a 10% increase in the travel speed.

The DX490LC-3 model is powered by the well-proven Isuzu AL-6WG1X common-rail, variable-geometry turbocharge, six-cylinder diesel engine which also utilizes EGR and DPF technologies to meet Stage IIIB regulations. The new Isuzu engine provides 16% more power (290kW) at 1,800 rev/min, a 30% rise in displacement and a 41% increase in engine torque, compared to the previous DX480LC model.

At Bauma 2013 Doosan will also be revealing a new range of ISO 23727-type quick-coupler systems for the company’s new-generation Doosan DL200-3 to DL420-3 Stage IIIB-compliant wheel loaders.

For use with the new quick-couplers, Doosan will also be showing a complementary range of pallet fork and bucket attachments including: pallet forks with load capacities from 5 to 9 tonnes; general-purpose buckets from 2 to 4.2 cubic metres; heavy-duty buckets from 2 to 4.2 cubic metres; and light-material buckets from 3 to 6.5 cubic metres.

The launch of the quick-coupler wheel loader attachments is the latest expansion of the new Doosan Heavy Attachment range for the Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.

Offering a one-stop shop for wheel loader and excavator attachments, the Doosan Heavy Attachment range will be on show for the first time at Bauma 2013 and, as well as the wheel loader quick-coupler products, other highlights will include: a new range of pin-on wheel loader buckets; a new range of excavator buckets and universal pin-on quick couplers; and an extended range of Doosan hydraulic breakers.
