The DEVELON DL280-7 wheel loader offers durability and maneuverability for loading and carrying construction materials or transporting scrap. New optional stronger axles increase lift capacities and an optional larger counterweight can be added.
Wider radiator fin spacing and a standard reversible fan clear dirt, dust and other large debris to reduce clogging. The box frame offers added durability, and the articulating design provides excellent load distribution and rigidity for improved structural life.
A deeper front fender offers additional wheel coverage for better windshield protection. A rear full fender is optional for improved machine reliability.
Performance features include a powershift transmission with optimized hydraulic pumps, multiple power modes, Z-bar lift arm, return to dig and limited slip differentials on both front and rear axles.
With the high-lift option, you'll gain additional lift height and reach. Easily load materials like cement, coal or waste into high-sided trucks, hoppers or mixers. High lift is ideal for processing plants, scrap and recycling facilities, and agricultural operations.
The optional Load Isolation System improves stability while moving to reduce material loss when carrying loads.
Add the optional quick coupler to quickly change non-hydraulic attachments without leaving your seat.
Comfort and Control
The roomier, more comfortable cab includes relocated controls for more intuitive use. The DEVELON Smart Touch screen displays all important settings and information, including the rearview camera view.
Optional electro-hydraulic controls for the DL280-7 (EMVC) offer load-sensing hydraulics for precise control and reduced fuel consumption.
Increased glass area, a full glass door, larger mirrors and optional LED work lights offer all-around visibility. In addition, the exclusive Standard Transparent Bucket option provides a supplemental visual perspective by allowing operators to “see-through” the bucket from an in-cab display.
An upgraded heating and air conditioning system keeps operators comfortable when working long days. The DEVELON Smart Guidance System provides tips for operators to achieve more efficient machine operation. The DEVELON Smart Key allows push-button engine starts.
Maintenance is quick and easy on the DL280-7 wheel loader with convenient component access, centralized lubrication points and accessible fluid-level checks.
DEVELON Fleet Management makes it easy to monitor your DL280-7 and manage maintenance to reduce operating costs. You can check fleet status, machine location, operating hours, fuel usage, engine idle vs. work time, error codes, engine and hydraulic oil temperature and various other data points.
Automatic transmission modes shift gears to maximize efficiency. The standard auto-idle feature reduces engine rpm when the steering wheel or joystick isn’t being used, and auto-shutdown turns off the engine after a set amount of time idling.
Operators can choose from three power modes, including Power mode for demanding tasks, Normal mode for general work conditions and Economy mode to minimize fuel consumption for light-duty work.
To comply with Tier 4 emissions standards, the DL280-7 incorporates a high-pressure common-rail (HPCR) fuel delivery system as well as cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR), combined with a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and selective catalyst reduction (SCR) with diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).
