Waterloo, Belgium – EMS (Embankment Machinery Sales) will be showing the Bobcat range of telehandlers alongside the Doosan range of excavators and wheel loaders for the first time at the 2016 National Ploughing Championships, taking place in Screggan, Tullamore, Co Offaly in Ireland from 20-22 September 2016.
This follows on from the new appointment of EMS by Doosan Bobcat EMEA as the Authorised Dealer for the Bobcat telehandler range in Leinster. Seamus Flynn, Sales Director at EMS, said: ”We are delighted to be appointed Bobcat telehandler dealer and are very excited to be in a position to supply our customers with the broad offering of Bobcat telehandler models. The range starts from 5.8 m and goes up to 18 m in rigid chassis machines, covering all of the agricultural and the majority of construction applications. There is also a 4 model range of Roto machines from 16 to 25 m to complete the offering for applications that require extra height.”
EMS also has exclusivity for sales and service in Leinster for the full range of Doosan crawler and wheeled excavators from 3 to 53 tonne and the full range of Doosan wheel loader models with bucket capacities from 1.9 to 4.8 m3. In addition, EMS is selling the Doosan range of mini- and midi-excavators throughout the Republic of Ireland. EMS is currently in the process of moving to new modern premises at the Naas Enterprise Park, providing a trebling in both office and workshop space.
Attended by over 281,000 visitors in 2015, the National Ploughing Championships will see a display of several Bobcat telehandler models for the farming and construction industries, next to a comprehensive selection of Doosan equipment on the EMS stand. The latter will include the DX63-3 6 tonne conventional tail swing excavator and the new Doosan DX140W-5 Stage IV 14 tonne wheeled excavator. The new Doosan Stage IV wheel loader range will also be a feature along with the new Stage IV compliant DX140LCR-5 15 tonne reduced tail swing crawler excavator, the DX225LC-3 crawler excavator and the DX27Z mini-excavator.
New Generation Bobcat Telehandlers
Over the last four years, a new generation of Bobcat telehandlers has been introduced, including the TL358/TL358+, TL360 and TL470 5 to 7 m models aimed primarily at the agricultural market and the T35105, T35105L and T36120SL 10-12 m middle lift models; the new T35130S 13 m and T35140S 14 m models and the top-of-the-range T40140 14 m and T40180 18 m telehandlers aimed at applications in construction. These machines are all covered by a new standard three year warranty from Bobcat.
In the Doosan display, one of the stand-out features on the DX63-3 excavator is the dramatic increase in hydraulic performance, which has been boosted with an impressive 33% increase in maximum flow rate to 132 l/min. In addition, the hydraulic system now incorporates a load sensing system which guarantees high hydraulic performance and allows smooth and efficient combined operations.
Setting a New Benchmark
Like all Doosan Stage IV compliant machines, the new DX140W-5 14 tonne wheeled excavator features a distinctive new machine styling scheme marking the many design advances it incorporates, which go well beyond simply meeting Stage IV emission regulations and set a new benchmark for wheeled excavators worldwide.
The DX140W-5 has the same 6-cylinder Doosan engine and power output as the Stage IIIB machine, but has 5% more traction force, ensuring superior performance compared to the previous generation machine. Another important aspect of the new model is the ‘CabSus’ cab suspension system which reduces vibration and provides a 1 dBA reduction in cab noise, further increasing safety and comfort for the operator.
Higher Power – Lower Fuel Consumption
The new Doosan DX140LCR-5 excavator offers increased performance, durability and fuel efficiency, with a focus on greater power, robustness and versatility. Power is provided by the Perkins 1204F engine, which combines reduced fuel consumption with the power and torque of larger engines with a smaller displacement. The new Perkins 1204F engine provides a 6% increase in power with an output of 85.9 kW (115.3 HP) at 2000 rpm and a 3% increase in torque. Swing torque has also been boosted by 28%.
Aftersales service is a crucial part of the offering from EMS (www.emsmachinery.com) and the company prides itself on its professional aftersales and product support. The service department at the Naas headquarters will provide a complete field and workshop service operation for the Irish market.
All the staff at EMS offer many years of experience and all the company’s engineers are factory-trained in the wide breadth of applications and maintenance procedures for Doosan equipment.
