Doosan Announces New DL280-5 Wheel Loader

Doosan Infracore North America LLC, has extended its wheel loader lineup with the new DL280-5, part of the popular category of 3- to 4-cubic-yard units. The new wheel loader is designed to provide operators with enhanced performance and comfort, as well as increased uptime protection when working in general construction, scrap and waste-handling applications.

The 172-horsepower DL280-5 is manufactured with a standard Z-bar lift-arm linkage and is ideal for scooping, loading, carrying and general construction tasks. Operators requiring additional dumping capabilities into trucks and hoppers will benefit from the high-lift Z-bar configuration, which provides an additional 18 inches of dump height.

Inside the cab, DL280-5 is equipped with an upgraded standard forward-neutral-reverse (FNR) joystick control/gear selector for greater comfort and productivity.

The FNR functionality is more intuitive,
allowing operators to easily switch between forward, neutral and reverse, without removing his or her hand from the controls, simply by pressing the joystick buttons.

An exclusive feature is the optional wide-fin radiator, which has a standard 6 fins per inch, and is available in a package with heavy-duty axles. The wide fin radiator option provides better cooling with larger fin spacing, helping to filter out dust and debris, which can be particularly helpful in scrap, recycling and solid waste applications.

For additional machine performance in scrap and recycling applications, the DL280-5 can be equipped with heavy-duty axles. These allow owners to use solid tires to improve uptime in applications where pneumatic tires are susceptible to puncture. DL280-5 owners should work with their local Doosan dealer to determine the best solid tire option for their machine.
The DL280-5 wheel loader can be equipped with an optional guarding package to protect critical wheel loader components when working in harsh conditions.
