The Doosan DL580-5 wheel loader is designed for customers in mining and aggregates, as well as heavy construction. It can fill over-the-road 24-ton trucks in two passes, and features an enhanced front workgroup with a reinforced Z-bar, a larger profile arm and lift cylinder geometry that all work together to improve lifting capacity and performance.
A larger volume steering pump and cylinders helps maintain steering efficiency with larger loaded weights; electric steering is standard. Heavier front and rear axles are also intended to help control those heavier weights, with six-disc outboard brakes on each hub. The machine is fitted with lower profile tires on a larger diameter and wider rim, to provide enhanced traction.
Three new aggregate buckets are available to pair with the DL580-5 which can maximize material moving rates These 8, 9 and 10 cubic yard buckets are designed for use with the new machine with the intended purpose of moving large amounts of aggregate material while withstanding abrasive material. Trimble's LOADRITE L3180 SmartScale is available as an option, to assist the operator for more accurate, precise and faster loading.
Searching for the best-performing excavator? Your search ends here. We tested the Volvo EC350E and EC380E against a leading competitor in three different tests: trenching, truck loading and lifting capacity at reach. The results show a 20% difference in cost-per-ton, a 15% difference in tons-per-hour and a 12% difference in both operating costs and lifting capacity. See the results and put an end to your search for the best excavator.
