Doosan to put on a comprehensive display at Hillhead 2014
New products from Doosan Heavy, Bobcat, Doosan Portable Power, Montabert and Geith
THE Doosan Construction Equipment stand and working displays at Hillhead 2014 will provide visitors with a demonstration of the company’s comprehensive range of products for the quarrying and mining markets, featuring products from Doosan Heavy, Bobcat, Doosan Portable Power, Montabert and Geith.
The stand display will feature the Doosan Heavy range of excavators, wheel loaders and articulated dumptrucks; Bobcat compact loaders and compact excavators; portable compressors and generators from Doosan Portable Power; and a selection of Montabert hydraulic breakers and Geith-branded buckets and quick-couplers.
There will also be continuous live demonstrations of Doosan Heavy equipment in the Quarry Face Demo Area. Many of the machines on the stand and in the demo area will be shown with all the options required to meet full quarry specifications.
Among the Doosan products making their first appearance at a Hillhead show will be the 52-tonne DX530LC-3 excavator and the DL420-3 wheel loader. The DX530LC-3 offers the strength and productivity needed for heavy-duty work such as large-scale earthmoving, moving rock, pulling down buildings, secondary breaking and loading haulers on quarry, mining, highway, aggregate, demolition, utility and general construction projects. The excavator is powered by the well-proven Isuzu AL-6WG1X Stage IIIB-compliant diesel engine, providing 290kW (389hp) of power at 1,800 rev/min.
With a bucket capacity of 4.0 cubic metres, the DL420-3 wheel loader is intended to meet a wide range of material-handling needs from loading and transporting granular material to industrial, mining and quarrying applications. Part of the family of Stage IIIB-compliant large wheel loaders from Doosan, the DL420-3 combines high engine power output and SCR technology with a new ZF transmission and several other features to minimize fuel consumption.
The Bobcat display will include the first showing at Hillhead of the new E85 8-tonne excavator, powered by a Yanmar 4TNV98C-VDB8 Stage IIIB-compliant diesel engine providing 44.3kW of power at 2,100 rev/min. The new Bobcat E85 is said to offer one of the best fuel efficiencies for this size of machine on the market.
Along with the 10% increase in power over the previous E80 model it replaces, the E85 excavator has a significantly increased bucket digging force of 61.8kN – 13% higher than the E80 model. The E85’s bucket breakout force is 6.3 tonnes (ISO) and the arm breakout force is 4.4 tonnes (ISO) with the standard 1.7m arm. Maximum digging reach is 6.92m at ground level in the standard configuration and the maximum digging depth is 4.18m.
Products being shown by Doosan Portable Power will include the large 12/250 Stage IIIB compressor and the G100-IIIA Stage IIIA-compliant generator. The 12/250 model is part of a family of five large compressor models all sharing a common design and offering free air deliveries from 21.5 to 30.0 cubic metres per minute. The compressors are powered by the Cummins QSL9 Stage IIIB engine using EGR, DOC and DPF after-treatment technologies. Although dimensionally smaller than its predecessor, the 12/250 compressor offers a higher flow of 25 cubic metres per minute (previously 23.5 cubic metres per minute).
Like the 12/250 compressor, the G100-IIIA (100kVA prime power) generator offers robustness and reliability, high performance and a wide choice of features. Of particular interest is the innovative fuel tank frame system with its integral containment base to ensure 110% fluid containment capacity. The G100-IIIA generator has a standard fuel capacity that offers a minimum of 12h of autonomous operation (at 75% load), while a 24h onboard fuel tank configuration is available as an option.
