Doosan launches Stage IV-compliant material handler


Doosan’s latest material handler is ensuring the solid waste, recycling, demolition and forestry industries meet Stage IV emissions regulations. Designed specifically for a range of material sorting and handling applications, the new DX250WMH-5 vehicle has a boom and arm for such tasks.

Based on the company’s popular 21-metric ton DX210W-5 wheeled excavator, the material handler is powered by an in-house built, DL06PA, turbocharged, water-cooled diesel engine with 129.4kW (173.5hp) of power at its disposal. 

Meeting Stage IV emissions requirements without a diesel particulate filter, the engine relies on cooled exhaust gas recirculation and selective catalytic reduction aftertreatment technologies. 

Vehicle efficiency is further improved through the use of variable speed control and pump torque control to automatically adjust revs-per-minute (RPM), according to the load being handled. 

Built with front and rear stabilizers, the material handler includes an hydraulic cab riser and rear-view camera combining to offer the operator all-round visibility of the worksite. 

Ergonomic joysticks and steering wheel simplify operating of the machine, while two-way auxiliary and rotate circuit hydraulics improve efficiency.

In addition to the four power modes, the material handler includes a lifting work mode that provides greater pump torque, low engine RPM and an automatic power boost. 

An optional generator is available without requiring additional modification and for added durability, and an optional V-guard protects the machine sides and components behind the doors. 

In the cab, there is a 7in color LCD display that displays various machine monitoring statistics, as well as a video feed from the rear-view camera and/or an optional side-view camera.
