Doosan’s largest ever forklift truck models have entered production.
The South Korean equipment manufacturer has added two giant units to its 7-Series forklift line. The DV180S-7 and DV250S-7 models boast capacities of 18 tonnes and 25 tonnes, respectively.
The load centre of both trucks is 1,200mm, making them the largest-capacity forklift models to leave the firm’s South Korean manufacturing plant.
The units are driven by Doosan’s latest Euro Stage 4 DL08P diesel engine. The 7.6-litre, six-cylinder engines offer high power output and torque, according to Doosan. The firm added that the engines have been designed with the environment in mind, ensuring reduced emission levels without the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
The Doosan DV180S-7 and DV250S-7 forklifts use diesel-oxidation catalyst (DOC) exhaust-treatment technology and exhaust-gas recirculation systems to reduce emissions by 90%, compared with existing models.
These reductions are achieved through the use of control technologies similar to those employed by 2007-2010 highway engines, according the manufacturer.
