Torque Parallel loader linkage

The mid-sized Volvo L45F and L50F wheel loaders are made for performance with features that include the patented Torque Parallel (TP) loader linkage, separate working hydraulic pumps for maximum power, 100 percent axle differential locks, and long service intervals. Rear axle oscillation increases machine stability.

The TP linkage gives smooth, parallel lift, high rollback torque, excellent lifting power throughout the lift range, and a clear view of attachments. A wide rollback angle retains loose bucket material, while the parallel lift action makes it suited for material handling and pallet handling.

The Volvo L45F and Volvo L50F wheel loaders provide separate power steering and load-sensing hydraulic pumps. The advantage of this design is that separate pumps ensure full steering power, regardless of the load on the main hydraulic pumps. Oil flow on the load-sensing pump automatically adjusts to match work demand. The result is lower fuel consumption during lighter work and increased component life – along with no compromise in performance when operating in tough conditions or demanding applications.

Doosan Expands Excavator Lineup

Doosan has added to its Tier 4 compliant crawler excavator lineup with the DX420LC-5, DX490LC-5 and DX530LC-5. The three new excavators feature increased performance, operator-focused comfort, fuel efficiency, unmatched reliability and durability. The new Tier 4 compliant excavators replace the interim Tier 4 (iT4) DX420LC-3, DX490LC-3 and DX530LC-3.

Doosan DX420LC-5, DX490LC-5 and DX530LC-5 excavators comply with Tier 4 emission standards with modified diesel engines and aftertreatment technologies. The engines are optimized for use with a high-pressure common-rail (HPCR) fuel delivery system and a cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) system. They utilize a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) to reduce particulate matter (PM) and selective catalyst reduction (SCR) aftertreatment to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx). Additionally, the crawler excavators use a variety of aftertreatment systems as part of the Tier 4 compliance, such as diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), which is used with SCR technology.
