Doosan Debuts DL280-5 Wheel Loader


Doosan Infracore North America has extended its wheel loader lineup with the new DL280-5 wheel loader. The new DL280-5 is part of the popular category of 3- to 4-cu.-yd. wheel loaders.

The Doosan DL280-5 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-hp 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. The high-lift iteration provides an additional 18 in. of dump height, making it especially beneficial in construction, mining and agriculture market segments.

Joystick Enhancements

Inside the cab, Doosan DL280-5 wheel loaders are equipped with an upgraded standard forward-neutral-reverse (FNR) joystick control/gear selector for greater comfort and productivity. The FNR functionality on the joystick 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 on the DL280-5 is its optional wide fin radiator, which has a standard six 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.

Heavy-Duty Axle Option

For additional machine performance in scrap and recycling applications, the DL280-5 can be equipped with heavy-duty axles. The heavy-duty axles 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.

Easy Attachment Changes

Versatility is important to wheel loader owners when they’re working, especially when they want to change attachments quickly. The DL280-5 has an optional quick coupler to easily change attachments, including buckets (general purpose, light material or multi-purpose) and pallet forks.

Doosan Telematics

Doosan DL280-5 wheel loaders come with a standard three-year subscription to Doosan telematics, which allows equipment owners and fleet managers to remotely monitor machine location, hours, fuel usage, engine idle versus work time and error codes, as well as engine and hydraulic temperatures. Machines can be monitored via an online Doosan telematics account. In addition, Doosan dealers can provide improved customer support using the system by responding to machine warning messages and alerts, troubleshooting machine issues, and then sending a field service vehicle to help with repairs as well as deliver the proper parts.
