Latest Doosan ADT makes first appearance
By Mike Hayes17 February 2020
Doosan will be promoting its ‘Powered by Innovation’ slogan at ConExpo, with a line-up of excavators, wheeled loaders and articulated dump trucks (ADTs).
The DA45 ADT, with a 41-tonne payload, will be shown for the first time at the show. The truck is powered by a Scania Stage V DC13 13 litre diesel engine, with an output of 368kW.
Doosan says the new engine has an improved after-treatment system and has spent two years in testing in extreme mining and construction conditions.
The machine also features a new cab and semi-levelling front suspension that adjusts itself independently, according to the operating conditions.
Also on show will be the DL580-5 wheeled loader, powered by a Scania DC13 6-cylinder 283kW engine and with an operating weight of 36,030kg and a bucket capacity of 5.4m3.
The machine features a strengthened front structure, plus reinforced Z-bar kinematics for heavy lifting with few moving parts.
Doosan says the new design helps stabilise the loader, enabling rapid bucket movements.
