New Doosan wheel loaders for the Middle East and Africa

Doosan DL250A wheel loader

Company launches DL250A, DL300A and DL420A models to suit Middle Eastern and African markets

A NEW range of Doosan wheel loaders has been launched for markets in the Middle East and Africa region. Building on the design of the previous Mega range, the new Doosan DL250A, DL300A and DL420A wheel loaders offer several improvements for better performance, greater operator comfort, easier handling and serviceability, as well as increased durability.

With bucket capacities ranging from 2.5 to 4.5 cubic metres, the new DLA wheel loaders are intended to meet a variety of material-handling needs from loading and transporting granular material to industrial, mining and quarrying applications.

The new DL250A loader is powered by a Doosan Tier 1 diesel engine while the DL300A and DL420A models are driven by Doosan Tier 2 engines, all of which are less sensitive to fuel quality than Tier 3 engines, while still offering reduced fuel consumption and emissions.

The width of both the lift arm and the tilt lever on the DL250A wheel loader has been increased, and the dump height has been increased to 2,865mm at the 50 degree maximum tilt angle. All three wheel loader models offer higher static tipping loads at maximum reach with a straight frame: 11,000kg (DL250A), 14,800kg (DL300A) and 17,900kg (DL420A).

The new ROPS/FOPS-certified cab offers high levels of operator comfort through a combination of: increased space (6% more volume in the DL250A and 11% more in the DL300A and DL420A models); better visibility due to a wider front glass section; better air conditioning with a 30% increase in air nozzles; a new instrument panel; a new layout for controls and switches; and improved storage areas.

The new wheel loaders also feature new versions of the ZF axles previously used on the Mega models. All axles are equipped with a new breather system intended to prevent clogging by dust and sand, which can raise the temperature of the axle oil and damage seals on the axles. In addition, a completely new steering unit in the DL250A model and an improved steering amplifier and accumulator in the DL300A and DL420A enable smoother steering.
