Doosan has expanded its 9-Series Euro Stage V-compliant counterbalance forklift range with five new models across a capacity range of 2-3.5 T.
A new sleek design improves operator comfort, offering spacious leg room with a 50% larger floor plate, concealed tilt cylinder, increased torso clearance and an all-new 'full floating' cabin design with curved front, top and rear glass panels - reducing noise to just 79db and vibration to an absolute minimum.
As with all the trucks in the 9-Series, the D25S-9 range has been designed to give the driver even greater all-round visibility. The large, rounded glass panels and contoured cowl design provide a clear forward, rear and upper view, and with the option of a FFT wide-view mast, create even better forward visibility.
At the heart of the D25S-9 is the Doosan-built G2 diesel engine, which is specially designed for industrial vehicles. It provides high torque at low RPM - effectively delivering improved forklift acceleration, drive and climb performance. Importantly, the
inherently clean G2 engine, when fitted with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), is fully compliant with Euro Stage V regulations. In normal operation, regeneration of the DPF takes place automatically during driving - maximising uptime and ensuring uninterrupted all-round performance.
An important cost-saving standard feature of the new range is the multi-torque function, allowing the operator to select the performance most suited to the task. ECO mode minimises fuel consumption, cutting down on unnecessary acceleration; High mode increases power output to match the demands of heavy-duty work; and Standard mode maintains output at levels suited to everyday tasks.
Doosan takes ease of maintenance into account with improved accessibility to the engine and service areas - the hood opening has been increased to an angle of 80
degrees and a tool-less side panel and floor plate allow simple access to key areas. The transmission oil filter and pressure check port are placed on top of the transmission for easy inspection and maintenance, and electronic components are centralised for convenience.
