Doosan Bobcat, the leading manufacturer of robust high-performance forklift trucks, has launched a powerful new world-class range of Euro Stage V compliant IC diesel counterbalance forklift trucks. The 9-Series offers an unbeatable combination of outstanding fuel efficiency, performance, driver comfort, and durability.

Available in five models across a capacity range of 2.0–3.5 tonnes, these versatile diesel-powered trucks offer an unbeatable combination of outstanding fuel efficiency, performance, driver comfort, and durability.

The new design combines looks with 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 79 db and vibration to an absolute minimum.

As with all the trucks in the 9-Series, the D25S-9 range has been designed to give the driver even greater all-round visibility. The large, rounded glass panels and contoured cowl design provide a clear forward, rear, and upper view, and with the option of a FFT wide-view mast, it creates even better forward visibility.

Compliance with performance

At the heart of these trucks is the advanced G2 Doosan Bobcat 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, which allows 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 Bobcat's highly responsive 9-Series share an 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. 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%.

Enhancing the overall performance and durability of the range is the new integrated powertrain cooling system, which delivers excellent cooling performance similar to the heavy-duty option of the previous model. By streamlining the counterweight profile, improving fan and core clearance, and increasing the capacity of the charging pump by 47%, the operating temperature of engine coolant has been significantly reduced from 103 to just 89.2 degrees centigrade.

Safety first

Safety is foremost across Doosan Bobcat's entire new 9-Series, as reflected in many of the design features already outlined. In addition, further prominent safety features include:

  1. Electronic parking brake: when the operator stops working and gets off the truck, the parking brake is automatically activated.
  2. Operator sensing system: whenever the operator leaves the seat, the truck travel and mast lifting functions will stop. This system avoids any unintended forklift movements when the operator is not seated.
  3. Improved visibility: 9-Series trucks have even better visibility for the operator to work safely and comfortably.
  4. Automatic deceleration: without the operator’s foot on the accelerator pedal, the truck will automatically decelerate quickly to the minimum speed.
  5. Speed limits: different speed limits can be applied for forward and reverse travel.
  6. Reverse lock: changing from moving forward to reverse is only possible if the truck speed is below 3 km/h.
  7. Seat belt sequence interlock: the seat belt needs to be fastened when the operator is seated in order to operate the truck.
  8. LED lights are brighter and last longer than traditional sealed beams or halogen lights.
  9. A large panoramic mirror (optional) provides the operator with a clear view of the rear working area, improving safety and work efficiency.

‘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 that presents operating and maintenance information clearly outdoors, and an easy entry grab-bar and an anti-slip step-plate that 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.

For extra driver comfort, the optional air conditioning and heater system has an air filter to prevent dust inflow, offers internal and external air circulation control, air volume control, and has an ergonomically designed air vent layout.

Also included as standard is a sealed, oil-cooled disc brake system, which is virtually maintenance-free and lasts up to five times longer when compared to conventional shoe brakes. The sealed units protect against outside elements such as dirt, water, and grit, ensuring braking performance for enhanced safety and increased productivity.
