Firsts for New Bobcat/Doosan Products at Ploughing Show 

Limerick-based Bobcat and Doosan dealer, Adare Machinery, will be showing new Bobcat and Doosan products for the first time in Ireland at the National Ploughing Championships, taking place in Screggan, Tullamore in Co Offaly from 18-20 September 2018. 

Ireland Launch for New R-Series Mini-Excavators

The Ploughing Show will provide the platform for the latest developments from Bobcat, including the launch in Ireland of the new Bobcat R-Series mini-excavators from 2-4 tonne. The new range of five excavator models – the E26, E27z, E27, E34 and E35z – offers a best-in-class mix of high digging forces, superb stability and smooth controllability of working functions complemented by low weights for easy transportation. 

Adare is showing the new E27z 2.7 tonne model at the Ploughing Show, offering the largest cab for this size of machine on the market. As a true Zero House Swing machine (even with the optional heavy counterweight), the E27z offers the highest flexibility of movements when working close to walls.

Also being shown for the first time in Ireland is the Bobcat T40.180SLP 18 m high lift telehandler, The T40.180SLP is the top-of-the-range model in the fifteen different rigid frame telehandlers from Bobcat, covering maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 4.3 tonne and maximum lifting heights from 6 to 18 m. All Bobcat rigid frame telehandlers are backed by a unique three year warranty as standard. High performance is ensured by the Bobcat D34 Stage IV/Tier 4 Final compliant diesel engine developed in-house.

The Adare stand will also feature the Bobcat E10 and E19 mini-excavators and the S70, S450 and S590 skid-steer loaders. This year is the 60th Anniversary of the Bobcat skid-steer loader. Sixty years ago, Melroe Manufacturing Company, the forerunner to Bobcat Company, introduced a compact front-end loader that evolved quickly into the M-400, the world’s first true skid-steer loader. The M-400 later adopted what became the world famous ‘Bobcat’ brand and its success created the global compact equipment industry we know today.

First Time for Doosan DL220-5 Wheel Loader in Ireland

Adare is showing the Doosan DL220-5 Stage IV compliant wheel loader for the first time in Ireland. With a bucket capacity of 2.2 m3, the DL220-5 is intended to meet a wide range of material-handling and loading applications in housebuilding, commercial developments, civil engineering, road construction and maintenance, land improvement/water control, crop and livestock production, snow removal, scrap handling and many other areas.

The DL220-5 wheel loader is powered by the well-proven 6-cylinder, turbocharged Doosan DL06P water-cooled diesel engine which offers convenience and lower costs by meeting Stage IV emission regulations without the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF), through the use of cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and selective catalyst reduction (SCR) after-treatment technologies. The DL06P engine provides a power output of 119 kW (160 HP) at 2100 RPM and a maximum torque of 735 Nm at 1400 RPM.

The DL220-5 wheel loader has an operating weight of 12365 kg, a static full turn tipping load (40°) of 8570 kg and offers a breakout force of 102 kN.

The DL220-5 is manufactured with a standard Z-bar lift-arm linkage and is ideal for scooping, loading, carrying and general construction tasks.  For operators requiring additional dumping capabilities, the DL220-5 is also available with a high-lift Z-bar configuration, extending the dump height 457 mm above that of the standard DL220-5.  This configuration is ideal for loading material into high-sided trucks or high hoppers, building stockpiles or handling solid waste.

Adare will also be showing the popular Doosan DX140LCR-5 reduced tail swing crawler excavator and DL450-5 wheel loader on the Ploughing Show stand.
