Doosan Infracore North America is launching its next-generation wheel loaders, the -7 Series, in the U.S. and Canada. Highlights include all-new redesigned cabs with comfort features, increased bucket capacities, and new fuel-saving technologies.

Seven models of the new Doosan -7 Series wheel loaders, with standard bucket capacities between 3.7 and 7.6 cubic yards, are available. Five additional Doosan models with bucket capacities between 2.6 and 3.3 cubic yards are planned to launch in early 2022. 

The wheel loaders feature a new exterior design and a completely redesigned, more comfortable cab. Bucket capacities for select models are 7% greater than prior models, providing faster, easier loading in fewer passes.

Standard technologies include DoosanConnect telematics, Situational Awareness technology that adjusts the engine’s output to match real-time requirements, Smart Guidance System that analyzes operator driving habits and provides tips during operation, Load Isolation System that improves wheel loader stability while moving, Smart Load weighing system, and Smart Key that can unlock the cab and allows the push-button engine to start.

The 12-model lineup consists of the DL280-7 with a 189-hp engine; DL320-7 and DL380-7 with 271-hp engine; DL420-7 and DL480-7 with 345-hp engine; DL550-7 with 380-hp engine; and DL580-7 with 394-hp engine.
