Doosan’s range-topping 70 tonne excavator, the DX700LC, will be a central feature of the company’s Bauma China stand.

Doosan’s stand at Bauma China will include several machines that are new to that market. Centre stage on the stand will be the company’s top of the range 70 tonne DX700LC crawler excavator. Also on show will be the DA40 articulated dump truck (DA40) – a first outing in China for this machine from the company’s portfolio.

Bauma China will also be a first outing for Doosan’s new generation DL550 wheeled loader, a range-topping machine with a 5.4 m3 bucket. A key is the Tier 2 12.7 litre Scania DC13 turbo-charged, air-to-air intercooled diesel engine, delivering ‘best in class’ power with a maximum output of 294 kW at 2100 RPM. The high engine power output is combined with new ZF transmissions and several other features that, as well as reducing fuel consumption, improve performance, durability, ease of handling and serviceability and operator comfort, according to Doosan.

Equipment on show with Doosan’s compact equipment specialist, Bobcat, will include the company’s new generation T770 compact tracked loader and A770 all-wheel steer loader, which replace the T300/T320 and A300 models. The T770 has a capacity of 1611 kg, while the A770 is rated at 1550 kg, and both feature spacious new cabs with improved visibility.
