Doosan Infracore launches Stage V wheeled excavators
By Leila Steed29 July 2021
Doosan Infracore Europe has launched its new Stage V compliant DX140W-7 and DX160W-7 wheeled excavators, as part of its new generation of construction equipment.
Designed to provide improved uptime and return on investment, the new Series-7 models are said to provide “significantly higher performance in every area” than Doosan’s previous generation machines.
Both machines offer four power modes and are fitted with Stage V compliant 6-cylinder Doosan DL06 engine, which provides 102 kW (137 hp) at 2000 rpm.
Doosan Infracore Europe, which recently appointed a new CEO, said: “In the new wheeled excavators, the enhanced fuel efficiency of the DL06 engine in combination with a new hydraulic main valve and the new generation SPC3 Smart Power Controls, provides increased fuel saving compared to the previous generation machines.”
While the smaller DX140W-7 has an operating weight of 16.5 t (16496 kg), the DX160W-7 weighs 17 t (1700 kg).
Both excavators provide a maximum digging depth of 5025 mm and an over arm digging force of 10 t.
They are also fitted with “enhanced” operator cabs, which include a 30% larger touchscreen and a new seat for greater comfort.
Standard features of both models include the manufacturer’s factory installed DoosanCONNECT telematics system, and a new Auto Digging Brake function on the control panel.
When enabled, the excavator’s service brake is automatically held in position when the machine stops, “without the driver having to step on the brake pedal”.
“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,” said Doosan.
