Doosan Infracore North America, LLC, is expanding its wheel loader lineup with the new DL580-5 wheel loader, designed both as a two-pass-fill machine for over-the-road, 24-ton-capacity trucks involved in mining and aggregate work, and as a loading unit for heavy-duty construction tasks.
The new wheel loader is equipped with an enhanced front work group that features a reinforced, Z-bar, large-profile arm that works with lift cylinder geometry to improve lifting capacity and performance, says Doosan. Also featured are a larger-volume steering pump and cylinders, designed to maintain steering efficiency with larger load weights. In addition, Doosan provides a heavier counterweight to offset larger load capacities.
To improve braking efficiency with larger loaded weights, the DL580-5 is designed with heavier front and rear axles with six-disc outboard brakes on each hub. The standard double-circuit axle coolers improve durability and proper braking efficiency, says Doosan, and protect against overheating of the axle assemblies via active cooling and dual radiators, including sensor based automatic temperature regulations. Electric steering is standard on the new DL580-5 and can be adjusted with a left-hand control. The machine is outfitted with lower profile tires on a larger-diameter, wider rims for enhanced traction. Rearview camera is standard.
Three new aggregate buckets, constructed of high-strength alloy steel, can be used with the DL580-5, with heaped capacities of 8, 9 and 10 cubic yards. The buckets also feature a flat-bottom design to improve pile penetration using less forward driving force, resulting, says Doosan, in fuel savings. The bucket’s side profile design features an arch structure, designed to improve material retention. Available are full-width-coverage, bolt-on cutting edges and an optional internal-wear liner.
Available as an option for the new Doosan DL580-5 is the Trimble LOADRITE L3180 SmartScale, which uses solid-state sensors and also can connect machines and devices for the collection and syncing of data via the built-in WiFi to the InsightHQ reporting portal. InsightHQ consolidates live, operational information from Trimble LOADRITE devices on loaders, excavators and conveyors across the site to provide near-real-time productivity and performance reports for extraction, processing and load-out operations.
