The Doosan DL250-5 and DL250TC-5 (tool carrier) wheel loaders offer improvements in fuel efficiency, operator comfort, serviceability, reliability, and remote monitoring. These models will replace the “dash-3” (interim Tier 4) models with a Tier 4-compliant Doosan DL06 diesel engine.

The DL250-5features a Z-bar loader linkage while the DL250TC-5 features a parallel lift-arm design. The Z-bar loader linkage is ideal for digging, heavy lifting, and general construction tasks. The parallel lift-arm design helps keep items level while the wheel loader is moving.

Limited-slip differentials help to scoop, lift, carry, and dump materials and are standard for both Doosan models. With this feature, the machines have more traction when excavating, grading, or loading trucks. To maneuver in tough terrain, the limited-slip differential allows the wheel with the most traction to receive the proper torque.

Doosan added an auto-shutdown system to its wheel loaders to help owners save fuel during non-working conditions. Operators can configure the idle time before auto shutdown from 3 to 60 minutes. When enabled, the feature will shut down the wheel loader’s engine when the preset idle time is met.

Doosan wheel loaders come with a standard three-year subscription to Doosan Telematics.
