Doosan to launch 4x4 DA45-7 ADT at Bauma

Doosan has announced that they will launch a new 4x4 articulated dump truck (ADT) at bauma 2022. The new machine is said to compete with rigid dump trucks (RDTs) in the 40-tonne class.

In the new 4x4 ADT, the front truck and cab unit is said to be the same as in the original 6x6 model, with modifications being made on the rear dumper unit only. Doosan says that the machine will feature a ZF EP8-420 transmission, the 4x4 DA45-7 is a two-axle ADT with twin wheels at the rear, and with a dumper section similar to that on RDTs in the 40-tonne class.

The new 4x4 DA45-7 ADT is also said to have a width of less than 4m to avoid the need for special transportation which Doosan believes will offer a better turning radius than a comparable RDT. The shorter turning radius and the design of the rear dumper unit, which is more suited to carrying flat and heavy rocks, provide particular advantages in the mining and tunnelling industries.

Beka Nemstsveridze, ADT product manager at Doosan, says, “The development of our 4x4 ADT was inspired by customer demand and the new 4x4 ADT can meet the needs of markets around the world by offering a compelling advantage to customers with specific requirements. For example, a machine like this might be able to extend the season for a mine that normally has to be stopped for a certain period due to the rainy season.”
