Doosan's Dl280-5 Agri Loader is being put to test across the country by a range of contractors through Adare Machinery.
In a post on Facebook, Adare Machinery - which is based in Co. Limerick - said: "FINALLY... The Doosan DL280-5 AGRI loader has landed and we want YOU to put this loader to the test!"
"Doosan's first dedicated agri loader combines a 175hp Doosan engine and a ZF axles/ transmission and weighs in at almost 16,000kgs."
"The new loader is getting fantastic feedback so far and passing every test. A big thanks to everyone who has got in touch. We are going to do our best to get her to as many people as we can before the season comes to a close!"
- A powershift transmission with optimized hydraulic pumps,
- Multiple power modes,
- Z-bar lift arm,
- Return to dig,
- Slip differentials on both front and rear axles.
Speaking about the machine - which was demonstrated in Pallaskenry Agricultural College - Danny McAulliffe said: “The visibility is good and all the functions are close to hand. There's good power, great response and there’s an unreal bite in the machine."
