Doosan Infracore’s DA40 articulated dump truck
The DA40 articulated dump truck was developed to offer engine power and torque, high payloads, low fuel consumption, operator comfort and fast travel speeds, according to the manufacturer. The undercarriage is designed so all six wheels are in permanent contact with the ground, allowing the truck to operate on rough and soft terrain.
Applications include construction sites such as road projects and mass excavation hauling and other public works applications. The dump truck has a top speed of 36 mph. It is powered by a six-cylinder interim Tier 4-compliant diesel engine with a gross power output of 500 horsepower at 2,100 rpm. The transmission has eight forward and four reverse speeds. Body capacity is 31.9 cubic yards, and the payload is 40 metric tons without the tailgate. The dump truck has permanent six-wheel drive for equal power distribution, while the free-swinging rear tandem bogie and the special articulation system offer driving performance in difficult terrain. The sloping body design adds to the stability of the truck because of its low center of gravity, and allows fast and easy tipping, regardless of conditions.
The dump truck has a hydro-gas front suspension. The independent front suspension allows for free movement on one side, without movement on the opposite side, providing maximum ground contact and shock absorption. The articulation hinge is positioned behind the turning ring to provide equal weight distribution, even during maximum turning, and to ensure maximum contact between the front wheels and the ground for traction. A powerful engine brake and hydraulic transmission retarder are standard.
The unit’s wet brakes have been developed for long service life and offer sealed protection from the environment. Oil-cooled multiple disc brakes on all the wheels ensure operator safety. The cab has an automatic climate control system, electronic systems and fingertip controls with a digital display of all desired machine functions. The automatic eight-gear transmission and smooth Tiptronic gear-shifting (both automatic and manual gear functions are available) allow the operator to concentrate on working and driving conditions. For routine maintenance and service, the cab can be tilted backward to provide access to components. An automatic central greasing system and rear view camera are standard.
