Doosan launches new version of DA30

DOOSAN has launched a new version of its DA30 ADT, complete with a new colour scheme and improvements aimed at enhancing operator comfort and controllability.

The 30-tonner’s suspension has been upgraded to a hydro-gas self-levelling system in a bid to provide “outstanding performance and superior shock absorption for better driving comfort”.

The truck’s cab now features a Grammer Actimo XXL seat as standard with independent low-frequency pneumatic and wide scissors-type suspension, along with a redesigned dashboard layout, which the manufacturer describes as providing better ergonomics and more operator comfort.

The cab also offers new safety and performance functions with a power cut off switch and LED indication lamp. Other features include a new level for retarder steering, a new brake system, as well as an extra handgrip, a USB charger and a 12V/24V power socket. On the outside of the cab, a new all-round handgrip rail has been installed for improved safety when moving round the outside of machine for cleaning and other tasks. 

Like all Doosan ADTs, the DA30 features an articulation hinge positioned behind the turning ring to provide equal weight distribution to the front axle even during maximum steer articulation.

This, the manufacturer said, together with a free-swinging rear tandem bogie, ensures equal distribution of weight to each wheel, guaranteeing permanent 6-wheel contact and drive for equal power distribution and “excellent” performance on difficult terrain.

According to Doosan, the new DA30 will offer lower running costs as there are a reduced number of service points with fewer different oil types in the driveline and increased intervals for transmission change.

The ADT is powered by a Scania DC9 276 kW (370hp) Stage IV/Tier 4 Final emission diesel engine and does not require a diesel particle filter.

Doosan claims the ADT’s “best-in-class” fuel consumption is down to a combination of features including the Scania diesel engine and a ZF EP transmission.
