Doosan Adds to Wheel Loader Line 

Doosan has added the Tier 4-compliant DL220-5 wheel loader with a 3-cubic-yard bucket capacity to its line. Replacing the DL220-3 model, the 160-horsepower DL220-5 provides productivity and performance.

The transmission, with three selectable modes, uses a vehicle control unit (VCU) to reduce fuel consumption and increase performance. The new wheel loader has an operating weight of 27,381 lb. (standard); and 28,296 lb. (high-lift option). Dump height is 9 ft. 3 in. (standard); 10 ft. 9 in. (high-lift option). Breakout force is 22,709 lbf. for the standard machine and 25,180 lbf. for the high lift option. 

The DL220-5 s powered by a Doosan DL06 diesel engine without the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF). Cab enhancements include a better, adjustable steering column to provide more legroom, a new fuel consumption gauge, and dashboard keypad. Two rear LED lamps provide better rear visibility when working at night. Doosan continues to offer its forward-neutral-reverse (FNR) joystick control / gear selector as standard equipment for greater operator comfort. 

Ease-of-maintenance updates include additional oil sampling ports; various fluid pressures are now viewable from the dash panel, allowing monitoring from the cab.

Uptime protection features include a fuel filter separator with double filtration that is easily accessible behind metal panels that protect internal components.Thick wheel loader lift-arm plates provide strength without sacrificing visibility, and the plates, chassis and joints have been analyzed using finite element techniques to confirm the components’ durability.

Limited-slip differentials come standard on the DL220-5 wheel loader. The DL220-5 has an optional hydraulic quick coupler to easily change approved attachments, including buckets (general purpose, light material or multi-purpose) and pallet forks.
