New range of telehandlers from Doosan
Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment have entered the high-capacity telehandler market with the launch of a new range of four models for markets in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Offering maximum lift heights of 10m and lifting capacities from 7-tonnes to 21-tonnes, the new Doosan high-capacity telehandlers are said to combine the flexibility of telescopic handlers with the power of wheeled loaders, the efficiency of rough-terrain forklifts and the reach of mobile cranes. They can be combined with many more attachments than comparable cranes or forklifts, allowing the operator to use one machine for carrying out jobs that would normally require two or more different machines. Using buckets up to 4.5m³ in volume, the Doosan high-capacity telehandlers are suitable for loading applications.
The new telehandlers form an important extension to the wide range of products offered by Doosan for civil engineering, mining and quarrying applications, which includes medium and large excavators, wheel loaders and articulated dumptrucks.
Featuring levelling as standard, the high-capacity telehandlers offer compact dimensions, an off-road design and high mobility thanks to travel speeds up to 36km/h.
The smallest model in the range is the DT70 telehandler, which has a maximum lift capacity of 7-tonnes, a maximum lift height of 9.65m and a maximum forward reach of 5.4m. The DT70 is driven by an Iveco NEF-TA diesel engine providing 93kW of power at 2,200 rev/min.
The next larger model, the DT120, offers a maximum lift capacity of 12-tonnes, a maximum lift height of 9.4m and a maximum forward reach of 4.9m. Power is provided by a106kW Perkins 1104D-ETA diesel engine.
The two largest models - the DT160 and the DT210 - both have a maximum lift height of 10.2m and maximum forward reach of 5.15m, with maximum lift capacities being 16-tonnes and 21-tonnes, respectively. Both are driven by a Perkins 1106D-ETA diesel engine providing 146kW of power at 2,200 rev/min.
