Doosan Infracore North America will showcase a new -7 Series wheel loader at World of Concrete 2021.

A Doosan DL380-7 wheel loader will be in the exhibit, W1302, in the West Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 8 to 10, 2021.

Doosan says a new look and all-new, redesigned cabs with enhanced comfort features, increased bucket capacities, and new fuel-saving technologies are highlights of this next generation of Doosan wheel loaders. Every -5 Series Doosan wheel loader will eventually be replaced by a -7 Series machine—from the DL200-7 to the DL580-7. Doosan announced it would be launching its next-generation wheel loaders back in April. 

The new DL380-7—a replacement for the DL350-5—features an axle upgrade allowing customers to carry and lift larger load capacities. This increases customers’ capabilities in a variety of traditional earthmoving applications. In addition, a larger standard bucket provides up to 7% larger capacity than the previous model for faster, easier loading to help customers finish their jobs in fewer passes, Doosan says.

Doosan will also showcase a 14-ton crawler excavator, the 109-hp DX140LC-5. The 14-metric-ton machine is among the most popular excavators in the Doosan lineup, especially for smaller residential site preparation. Its size makes it attractive to contractors who need an excavator larger than a mini excavator but still want the versatility of a relatively small crawler model, according to Doosan.

Doosan announces its top 10 North American dealers of 2020

In March of this year, Doosan announced its top-performing dealers of 2020, which are ranked among more than 160 Doosan equipment dealers in North America.

Doosan annually recognizes its heavy equipment dealers that have excelled in providing top-level performance in sales, parts, and service to the customers in their respective markets. The top 10 Doosan dealers of 2020 include the following enterprises:

  • Barry Equipment Co. (Webster, Massachusetts)
