The Doosan DL 420-7 Wheel Loader has an operating weight of 24 tonnes.

This version of the model is in Concept-X branding, which is Doosan's technology solutions effort.


The model comes in a hard carry case with Doosan Concept-X branding.  It is protected by soft paper and black foam.

The review model had no missing parts or defects. 

There is no information about the real machine or Concept-X.


The undercarriage is reasonably simple underneath and the axles are detailed.  The plastic wheels are well detailed and the tyres have a good tread pattern.

At the rear there is a fine mesh grille and a fan is just visible behind it.  The counterweight has nice lights and chevron graphics.  There are more etched grilles on the sides and top of the engine cover.

There are no hydraulics crossing the steering pivot point but tiny graphics add to the look.

The cab is detailed with a plastic mirror and a beacon light on the roof.  There is also a small aerial.  Handrails, ladders and mirrors are plastic parts.

The loader arm connections are very discretely done and there are hydraulic hoses running to the rams.  Nice graphics are applied.

The bucket is a metal part.


The wheels roll easily and there is very good steering across the pivot point.  The rear axle also oscillates.

The bucket hydraulics have a nice stiffness and the bucket height and tipping angle are very good.  The carry angle is a little shallow.

There are opening engine panels which reveals a detailed engine inside.  To access the panels the wheel arches are hinged.


This is a nice quality model with a high metal content and some plastic parts for detailing.

The Concept-X paint scheme looks very attractive.


It is fully priced.


This is a quality wheel loader model with some interesting features, and the colour scheme looks good too.  It comes in a high quality hard case, but of course this does add to the cost of the model.


This version of the model first appeared for Bauma in October 2022.
