New 30 tonne Powerhouse
The new Doosan DX300LC-5 excavator is powered by the Scania DC9 5-cylinder diesel engine, with an output of 202 kW of power at 1800 rpm, providing a huge 27% increase in engine power and a massive 30% boost in torque over the previous LC-3 model.
The engine meets Stage IV emission regulations without the need of a diesel particulate filter (DPF), through the use of cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and selective catalyst reduction (SCR) after-treatment technologies.
The DX300LC-5 excavator has an operating weight of 30.9 tonne and a bucket breakout force of 20.1 tonne (ISO), while the arm breakout force is 13.9 tonne (ISO). Maximum digging reach is 10.73 m at ground level in the standard configuration and the maximum digging depth is 7.31 m.
New Bobcat 13 m Telehandler
Adare Machinery will be showing for the first time in Ireland, the new Bobcat 13 m lift height T35130S telehandler, which along with the new Bobcat T35140S 14 m telehandler, is aimed at the construction and rental industries, with both telehandlers offering a 3.5 tonne maximum lift capacity.
The introduction of the new 13 and 14 m models follows on from the launch of the new Bobcat 10, 12, 14 and 18 m lift height telehandlers over the last two years. Whilst they have a simpler design intended to meet the needs of the rental business, the new T35130S and T35140S telehandlers still offer many of the advantages of the new generation models.
Particular attention has been paid to aspects such as the protection of sensitive parts, and intuitive and safe operating to meet the needs of rental users. The easy-to-use compact stabilisers ensure that the full capabilities of the new telehandlers can be utilised in the most confined working areas and close to walls (minimal loss of reach).
As in other new generation machines, the T35130S and T35140S telehandlers offer advanced features such as the new Panoramic Cab which has a large parabolic windscreen providing panoramic visibility especially when handling loads at height. In the cab, there is a new dashboard with digital display and intuitive controls including a joystick with integrated forward/reverse (FNR) control for improved productivity and safety.
The working envelope for the T35130S telehandler has a maximum lift height of 12.55 m and a maximum forward reach of 8.6 m. The Bobcat T35140S telehandler has a maximum lift height of 13.6 m and a maximum forward reach of 9.8 m.
