Doosan Unveils New DX225LC-7 Crawler Excavator
Doosan has launched the first of the company’s new generation medium-sized Stage V compliant excavators - the new DX225LC-7 23 tonne crawler model. The DX225LC-7 is also the first Doosan excavator of this size to feature Doosan’s innovative D-ECOPOWER virtual bleed off (VBO) technology, providing operators with higher productivity and around 7% lower fuel consumption per hour than the previous Stage IV model, as well as smoother controls.
New Heavier Counterweight for Work with Tiltrotators
In the DX225LC-7 the new features include a 14% heavier 4.9 tonne standard counterweight particularly suited for working with heavier attachments such as tiltrotators. The heavier counterweight contributes to the higher lifting and digging capacities of the DX225LC-7 compared to the previous generation model.
The DX225LC-7 also incorporates as standard a new lifting eye that forms part of the casting for the push link for the bucket attachment at the end of the arm. The new lifting eye has a maximum capacity of 5 tonne and has a special bush insert to prevent deformation of the lifting hole.
Complementing the increased stability provided by the new counterweight, the DX225LC-7 introduces a new smart hydraulic system that offers an improvement of around 30% in attachment work, compared to previous excavator models.
New Tiltrotator Mode
There is a new Tiltrotator Mode on the control panel in the DX225LC-7, which can be selected to ensure an optimized hydraulic flow and helps to maximize the accuracy of tiltrotator work by eliminating back pressure.
New Fine Swing Function
Another standard new feature is the Fine Swing function which minimizes the shaking that a lifted object undergoes at the start or stop of a swing movement with the excavator, to increase the safety of nearby workers and to prevent damage caused by the object falling from the excavator.
Increased Comfort and Controllability
The state-of-the-art cab on the DX225LC-7 excels in terms of spaciousness and ergonomics, taking operator comfort and ease of operation to new levels. As well as a new high quality seat, the enhanced cab offers more features as standard than other machines on the market, ensuring super controllability and high precision in all applications.
Key new features in and around the cab:
- New 8-inch touch screen, providing more information via a 30% larger screen
- DAB audio (Handsfree and Bluetooth)
- Smart keyless start system
- Leatherette Cooling Seat with seat belt warning alarm
