Doosan launch DX180LC-3 excavator

New mid-range crawler excavator designed to offer increased productivity and fuel efficiency

DOOSAN have introduced the DX180LC-3, the first in their new series of mid-range Stage IIIB-compliant excavators designed for productivity, fuel efficiency, comfort, reliability, durability and reduced operating costs.

The DX180LC-3 is powered by the Doosan DL06 common-rail, six-cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine, which meets Stage IIIB engine-emission regulations through the use of EGR and DPF after-treatment technologies.

The engine runs at 1,950 rev/min and delivers 3% more power and 15% more torque than the engine in the existing DX180LC Stage IIIA model. Factory tests have also shown a 5–10% reduction in fuel consumption, depending on the operating mode selected and the work being undertaken.

A new ECO Gauge on the control panel helps the operator to further reduce fuel consumption by providing real-time monitoring of fuel rate and actual engine percent load, while two new operating modes (P+: Power Plus; and L: Lifting) help improve controllability and efficiency.

The new ROPS and OPG-certified cab offers more space for the operator as well as several convenient features such as direct control through the joysticks, which have new proportional thumb wheel switches and integrated buttons to provide precise, proportional control of attachments. In addition, new cab suspension system cuts vibration by 20% and reduces the sound level in the cab to 70 dB(A).

For durability, the DX180LC-3 excavator has a more robust undercarriage with reinforced components, including track links, track springs, and sprockets. The boom and arm have been strengthened through the use of increased metal thickness at critical points together with reinforced bushings.

For improved serviceability, the engine bonnet is split into four parts for ease of access, while components such as filters, valves and batteries are all within easy reach for service work.

The DX180LC-3 is available with either standard or narrow tracks, as well as monobloc or articulated front working equipment.
