Doosan’s largest log loader: The DX380LL-5

Doosan log loader

Doosan’s latest  DX380LL-5 log loader is designed for demanding logging and forestry applications. 

The newest Doosan model weighs about 51,500 kg and is powered by a Tier 4-compliant, 318 hp diesel engine. 

It is an ideal machine for forestry professionals who work in shovel-logging, sorting and loading tasks. The log loader offers about 13.4 metres of reach at ground level, plus 360 litres per minute of hydraulic flow.

Each DX380LL-5 machine is designed with a log loader work group and a live heel. Doosan’s 360-degree rotating log grapples are commonly paired with the log loader’s live heel to efficiently lift, rotate, move and place logs.

The DX380LL-5 is manufactured with heavy-duty components and application-specific guarding. Durable boom, arm and heel cylinder guards, and machine guarding help minimize damage and machine downtime. 

Doosan log loader tracks are built with heavy-duty links with double grouser shoes and full-length guiding guards. As well, top rollers are equipped with special clean-out brackets to make routine maintenance simpler.

The DX380LL-5 is built with a high and wide undercarriage for excellent ground clearance. It comes standard with a 121-cm forestry cab riser with all-around visibility, including a standard rearview camera that is viewable from an easy-to-read, 18 cm LCD screen.

The screen provides information about the log loader’s engine rpm, battery voltage and hydraulic pump pressure. For comfort, operators are able to adjust the suspension seat, headrest and armrest, as well as joystick controls to best accommodate operator preferences.

The DX380LL-5 also includes fuel-saving features and systems. Auto-shutdown turns off the engine after reaching a preset idle time, which reduces fuel consumption. As well, operators can adjust this idle time from 3 to 60 minutes. 

The Electronic Power Optimizing System (EPOS) links the hydraulic system and engine control for productivity while minimizing fuel consumption. 

Choose from Standard Mode for optimized fuel consumption and general working conditions, Power Mode for faster cycle times and heavy-duty work requirements or Economy Mode for reduced fuel consumption in reduced demand applications. 

Auto-idle also helps to save fuel and improve production with precisely controlled hydraulic flow rates.
