Doosan has announced a new five model range of 3.5 to 5 tonne compact wheel loaders, which are now available from the company.

Comprising the DL60-7, DL65-7, DL80-7, DL85-7 and DL80TL-7 models, the new Doosan compact wheel loaders cover a wide range of applications, including construction, agriculture, earthmoving, waste/recycling, rental, builders merchants, landscaping, materials handling, warehousing and general industry.

Just like their heavier stablemates, the new machines offer a full suite of useful technology features, including a Stage V engine, hydrostatic 4-wheel drive, 100% differential lock on both axles, versatile and powerful hydraulics and high lift capacity with dependable stability.

The DL60-7 and DL65-7 are driven by a Stage V engine providing 48.5 kW (66 HP) of power at 1600 RPM. The Stage V engine in the DL80-7, DL85-7 and DL80TL-7 provides 55 kW (75 HP) at 1500 RPM.

Both Stage V engines offer high-pressure fuel injection and precise timing to provide an efficient fuel burn. The aftertreatment system is composed of an oxidation catalyst and long-life diesel particulate filter to reduce emissions without requiring Selective Catalytic Reduction. The top speed of the DL60-7 and DL65-7 is 30 km/h, while the DL80-7, DL85-7 and DL80TL-7 have a travel speed of 35 km/h. 

The brake pedal provides an inching function. With no pressure on the brake pedal, full power is available for the drive system. Light pressure on the brake pedal reduces travel speed, with more engine power for the working hydraulics. When full pressure is applied to the brake pedal, the machine stands still and full engine power is available for the working hydraulics. This saves fuel and provides faster hydraulic movement.

Operator comforts and safety features include an air-suspended seat as standard, an adjustable steering column and a DAB radio. Air conditioning is an option on all models. In addition, all necessary information can easily be read from the gauge panel.

The cab is available in three versions to suit different user requirements, each with ROPS/FOPS certification. All models are equipped with a safety roof as standard. For higher comfort, a safety roof deluxe or a fully enclosed cab are available. The use of narrow styles and a skylight gives the operator all-round visibility and an optimal view of their work - as seen below.

An 'all-in-one' joystick is also included, meaning that essential controls are always close at hand. Full control over the hydraulics and a spool valve memory function likewise help to increase efficiency.

Thanks to an optional tandem pump, a double-acting spool valve in the rear, and up to three double-acting spool valves on the lift arm, the user always has enough hydraulic power for even the most demanding attachments and applications. A High Flow option for up to 121 l/min is also available for the DL80-7, DL85-7 and DL80TL-7 models. 

All models are equipped with a hydraulic quick coupler as standard, while a wide range of attachments is available to fit to all customer needs, from the warehouse to recycling, construction, agriculture, landscaping or road maintenance, including several types of buckets, manure forks, pallet forks, push brooms, clamps, snow blades and levelling frames.

A wide selection of tyres also ensures customers obtain the maximum performance in their applications. Adjustable mudguards provide additional protection to keep the machines clean and safe.
