Doosan Bobcat EMEA will be showing a wide range of new generation products from the company’s Doosan Heavy, Doosan Portable Power and Bobcat ranges for the first time at the Hillhead 2016 Exhibition from 28-30 June 2016.
This includes the first showing of the flagship DX530LC-5 52 tonne Stage IV compliant excavator, where the phenomenal stability and very wide digging platform are combined with the best in class lifting capacities over both the front and side, with the lifting capacity over the side being increased by an impressive 12%.
Doosan will also show the new DX255LC-5 25 tonne crawler excavator for the first time at Hillhead. Whilst overall dimensions are very similar to the previous DX255LC-3 model, the DX255LC-5 Stage IV excavator combines greater power with a 500 kg increase in operating weight, resulting in increases of up to 17% in lifting capacities over both the front and side and a 1 dBA reduction in sound levels.
The top-of-the-range DL550-5 wheel loader will be demonstrated for the first time in the UK. Like the DX530LC-5, it is powered by the Scania DC13 engine, which provides generous torque at low rpm, up to a 10% reduction in fuel consumption, excellent response and meets Stage IV emission regulations without the need of a diesel particulate filter.
The same engine powers the new Stage IV DL420-5 wheel loader on the stand, which like the DL550-5 is intended to meet a wide range of material-handling needs from loading and transporting granular material (such as sand and gravel) to industrial, mining and quarrying applications.
Doosan Portable Power
Hillhead 2016 will provide a platform for the market-leading ranges of portable compressors, generators and mobile lighting systems from Doosan Portable Power. Alongside the 7/41G Tough Top generator-compressor and the Stage IIIA compliant G100-IIIA generator, the company will be showing the new 12/254 portable compressor for the first time at Hillhead.
The 12/254 is part of a new platform of five large Doosan Stage IV compliant portable compressors, which also includes the 9/274, 9/304, 17/244 and 21/224 models, offering free air deliveries from 21.5 to 30.0 m3/min at operating pressures from 8.6 to 21.0 bar. The new Stage IV compressors build on the high standards established by the Stage IIIB models, again combining compact size and easy serviceability to ensure a fantastic return on investment.
All the new compressors are powered by the Cummins QSL9 T4F 6-cylinder diesel engine which meets the Stage IV regulations without the need for a DPF. In the new 12/254 compressor, the QSL9 engine provides 247 kW (331 HP) of power at a full load speed of 1800 rpm. The 12/254 compressor has a free air delivery of 25 m³/min (883 cfm) at a discharge pressure of 12 bar (175 psi).
Large portable compressors like these provide compressed air for a wide range of drilling and boring machines for quarrying, mining, site investigation, geothermal, mineral exploration and water well construction work. They also cover other specialist applications such as abrasive blasting, spray painting and standby and temporary compressed air for industry.
Bobcat Compact Equipment
The product display on Stand W10 will also include the latest from the market-leading Bobcat ranges of micro- and mini-excavators, skid-steer loaders, compact tracked loaders and attachments.
Among the products on show are the T450 and T590 compact tracked loaders and the E10 and E26 excavators. Filling the gap in the range between the T110 and T590 models, this is the first appearance of the T450 at Hillhead. Manufactured at the Bobcat plant in Dobris in the Czech Republic, the T450 offers a massive increase in power combined with hydraulic and hydrostatic efficiency improvements that translate into significantly increased productivity.
Ideal for work in tight space applications such as recovering materials that drop under bulk handling conveyor systems in quarries and mines, the T450 is powered by the Bobcat D24 45.5 kW (61 HP) turbocharged diesel engine, providing 25% more power than its predecessor, the T140 model, ensuring the T450 has the best performance and engine power to weight ratio in its class.
There are more than 70 types of specialised attachments for the Bobcat loader and excavator ranges, from hydraulic breakers, crushers and planers and other construction and demolition attachments to scarifiers, graders, flail mowers, stump grinders and woodchippers for turf and forestry work. The usefulness and productivity of Bobcat compact equipment is continually being extended with the growth in the attachment range, saving time, effort and cost in carrying out an increasing range of applications.
