New Doosan and Bobcat Products
at Hillhead 2012
At the international Hillhead 2012 Exhibition, Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment will be
showing new heavy and compact equipment for the first time at the show. Doosan excavators, wheel loaders, articulated
dump trucks (ADTs) and high capacity telehandlers will be joined by Bobcat mini-excavator and compact loader products
on the company’s Stand Number W10.
The display of Bobcat compact equipment will include the new 2.6 tonne zero tail swing E26 compact excavator and
the S130 skid-steer loader.
The Doosan DX520LC crawler excavator will form part of the static display together with the new DL550-3, the
flagship model in the new Doosan range of large wheel loaders. The next model in the range, the new DL450-3 model,
will be in the Demonstration area. This will be the first appearance of the new Doosan wheel loaders at a UK exhibition.
New Generation Large Wheel Loaders
With bucket capacities of 4.5 and 5.5 m³, respectively, the new DL450-3 and DL550-3 wheel loaders are 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.
Both models are powered by the 13 litre Scania DC13 SCR 6-cylinder diesel engine delivering high power and engine
torque, with maximum power outputs of 264 and 283 kW at 1800 rpm.
The new wheel loaders combine these high engine power outputs with new ZF transmissions and several other
features to minimise fuel consumption and provide exceptional performance, ease of handling, serviceability, durability
and significantly enhanced operator comfort.
New Doosan Articulated Dump Trucks
Working with the DL450-3 in the demonstration area will be the company’s new
DA40 articulated dump truck. This is the largest model in the new family of
Doosan ADTs, incorporating over 40 years of expertise in this market and
using quality components from world-class suppliers such as Scania, ZF,
