Doosan's new 38tonne excavator is aimed at the mass excavation market
Doosan has launched a new 38tonne class excavator, the DX380LC, which the company claims offers high performance as well as increased control and precision, improved fuel economy and reduced noise and emissions.
Aimed at heavy construction and excavation applications the machine can be used in developing construction sites and renovating highways. High stability is a feature as the machine uses the long and wide under carriage of the larger DX420LC excavator.
Power comes from a sixcylinder Doosan DL08 diesel delivering 202kW, while the sophisticated e-EPOS electronic control system optimises power and reduces fuel consumption. The machine is offered with a choice of three booms and has a maximum digging depth of 8.2m and dump height of 7.75m. As with all other heavy Doosan excavators, the DX380LC has as standard an auto idle feature which reduces fuel consumption and noise. Another important feature is the optional economy mode that will minimise fuel consumption.
Other features include a spacious operator cab with a 180mm colour LCD monitor, low noise levels, proven parts from the larger DX420LC and engine service intervals at 500 hours.
