DOOSAN has unveiled a new range of general purpose performance buckets for the manufacturer’s wheel loader range.
The buckets are said to represent the first stage in an expansion of the choice of new wheel loader work tools from Doosan.
Key features include wide configurability and larger capacities. Manufactured using Hardox steel, Doosan revealed the new range offers ‘increased wear resistance compared to buckets made from hardened steel’. New shock absorbers provide additional comfort for operators and reduced stresses on both the wheel loader and the bucket structures.
The stoppers on the buckets are mounted on a rubber pad, which reduces the shocks and noises when rolling the buckets back.
Damien Dambre, product manager special applications & attachments development for Doosan Infracore Europe said, “The new range of general purpose performance buckets is almost fully configurable. In addition to deciding on teeth or bolt-on edges for the buckets, customers can choose from a wide selection of bucket features such as coupling systems, floor shapes, spill guard types, bucket protection, blade shapes and more.”
Doosan dealers can use an online tool to produce the buckets their customers require. The tool helps to configure a bucket through eight steps, with advice at each step to help make a choice according to customers requirements.
