New Doosan Stage V and demolition Machines to be showcased at Samoter 2020
Construction equipment company Doosan will showcase a range of new excavators, wheel loaders, articulated dump trucks and attachments at the Samoter exhibition, from 21-25 March 2020 in Verona, Italy.
Products being shown for the first time include Doosan’s new Stage V compliant 30-40 tonne crawler excavators, as well as a new range of high reach demolition excavators.
Also appearing for the first time at the show are the high performance DL280-5, DL420CVT-5 and DL580-5 wheel loaders and the DX35z mini-excavator.
Doosan is showing new technologies under the company’s ‘Powered by Innovation’ umbrella, expanding its smart solutions portfolio for construction, quarry and mining equipment.
The South Korean-headquartered company aims to give visitors a taste of the future by showcasing Concept-X, a new comprehensive control solution to operate equipment without human intervention.
At Samoter, Doosan will also focus on the company’s new fuel cell drones for monitoring machine performance and wider operation efficiency on construction, mine and quarry sites.
Doosan’s new Stage V excavators build on the design of the previous Stage IV machines. As well as higher performance and cost savings, the new Stage V excavators provide major enhancements in operator comfort, uptime and return on investment, with a strong focus on low fuel consumption, increased power, robustness and versatility.
To meet Stage V engine emission regulations, the new excavators are powered by the latest generation Doosan diesel engines.
New demolition excavators
The new high reach demolition excavators from Doosan feature a modular boom design and hydraulic lock mechanism to provide a complete, flexible solution in the same machine. This mechanism allows the operator to simply change between a demolition boom and an earthmoving boom to accomplish different applications on site.
The new machines have a high visibility cab which is designed for high reach demolition applications with a 30 degree tilting angle.
High breakout force
Doosan will also showcase its waste and recycling version of the new DL280-5 wheel loader, which is also ideal for general industrial and agriculture applications.
Powered by the well-proven DL06 diesel engine, providing 128 kW (172 HP) of power, the DL280-5 offers high performance and high productivity with a breakout force of 145 kN, combined with a high tipping load and enhanced output.
The DL420CVT-5 wheel loader is the first model in the Doosan wheel loader range to be equipped with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). A CVT transmission is composed of a hydraulic motor combined with a hydraulic pump which provides a smooth and continuous speed variation. With the CVT, a fuel saving of up to 15 percent can be achieved.
Doosan smart solutions
Among the new developments in the company’s smart solutions portfolio are the new fuel-cell powered drones from Doosan Mobility Innovation, which can monitor and document materials, equipment and transit routes for improved operational workflow.
Capable of flying up to two hours on one charge, these long-endurance fuel-cell powered drones can cover large sites in a single flight, versus using multiple batteries and flight locations. Using the drones can also improve the safety of workers and prevent accidents by using aerial scanning rather than manual materials climbing.
Charlie Park, CEO of Doosan Infracore Europe, said: “The construction, quarrying and mining industries are becoming increasingly digitalised. As you will see at Samoter, we want to stay ahead by investing heavily in new technology for our product development, which includes investing in our Concept-X vision, our wide-ranging concept covering everything from automated job-site management using drone and ICT techs to fully automated machine control.”
