THE Doosan DA30 ADT has won the EquipmentWatch 2022 Highest Retained Value (HRV) Award for Rear Dump Trucks.
According to EquipmentWatch, the data-driven awards recognise excellence among construction, lift and agricultural equipment manufacturers. Proprietary algorithms, depreciation schedules and other data are used, while analysts predict which equipment will give customers a greater return on investment five years into the future.
Beka Nemstsveridze, ADT product manager at Doosan, said, “Our Doosan ADTs are known for their performance, durability and reliability. We are delighted to win this Highest Retained Value award from EquipmentWatch, which confirms for our dealers and customers that they are making the right choice with Doosan.”
The latest generation ADTs from Doosan are the DA30-7 and DA45-7 Stage V-compliant models. The machines have payloads of 28 and 41 tonnes, respectively. The DA30-7 is powered by the Scania DC09 nine-litre diesel engine providing 276 kW (375 HP) of power. The DA45-7 is driven by the Scania DC13 13-litre diesel engine with an output of 368 kW (500 HP).
The models feature an articulation hinge positioned behind the turning ring to provide equal weight distribution to the front axle even during maximum steer articulation, Doosan explained. This combined with a free-swinging rear tandem bogie ensures equal distribution of weight to each wheel and is said to guarantee permanent six-wheel contact and drive for equal power distribution and ‘excellent’ performance.
