Doosan, the leading manufacturer of robust high performance forklift trucks, has expanded its powerful new 9-Series – world-class Euro Stage V compliant IC engine counterbalance forklift trucks – with the launch of the advanced D25S-9 range.
Available in five models across a capacity range of 2.0 – 3.5 tonne, these versatile diesel-powered trucks offer an unbeatable combination of outstanding fuel efficiency, performance, driver comfort and durability.
A striking, new sleek design combines rugged good looks with enhanced 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(A) and vibration to an absolute minimum.
As with all the trucks in the 9-Series the D25S-9 range has been cleverly designed to give the driver even greater all-round visibility. The large rounded glass panels and contoured cowl design provides a clear forward, rear and upper view, and with the option of a FFT wide-view mast, creates even better forward visibility.
Compliance with performance
At the heart of the D25S-9 is the advanced G2 Doosan-built 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. Advanced powertrain control
All models within Doosan’s highly responsive 9-Series share the most advanced powertrain system, providing the driver with precise control when handling heavy loads and helping to reduce operator fatigue. The sensitivity of the inching pedal is adjustable, ensuring accuracy when handling heavy and fragile loads such as glass bottles. In addition, the service brake is designed on the principle of a ‘master brake cylinder’, which increases braking capacity by 200% and reduces braking effort by 20%.
‘Full floating’ cab
The sleek looks of the new 9-Series are combined with sound ergonomics – taking safety, driver comfort, ease of maintenance and productivity fully into account.
The ‘full floating’ cab is designed for operator comfort and to reduce fatigue, with a fully adjustable premium Sears & Grammer suspension seat as standard, and excellent all-round visibility for safer manoeuvring with greater awareness. Other features include, a compact steering wheel with a slim telescopic steering column, a 5” (optional 7”) full colour LCD display presents operating and maintenance information clearly outdoors, and an easy entry grab-bar and an anti-slip step-plate facilitate safe access to and from the cab. For convenience, a document clipboard and USB port are located within the reach of the operator and other options, such as a cup holder and cab light are also available.
The new Doosan D25S-9 range offers all the power and performance needed to get the job done. More on Doosan’s powerful new 9 Series Euro Stage V compliant counterbalance forklift trucks can be found at doosanflt.com.
