Doosan DX225LC-5, DX235LCR-5 Excavators

Sept. 15, 2015

The DX225LC-5 and reduced-tail-swing DX235LCR-5 excavators are now Tier 4-Final compliant. The DX225LC-5 is also available in a long-reach version (SLR) that extends digging reach by 20 feet and digs to 38 feet 2 inches deep.

Each excavator has selectable Smart Power Control (SPC), which uses Variable Speed Control and Pump Torque Control to improve machine efficiency. The engine control unit manages SPC by reducing engine rpm during low workload requirements and matching hydraulic pump torque and engine response to the task, Doosan says.

Auto shutdown allows operators to set idle time from 3 to 60 minutes. An improved 7-inch LCD screen allows operators to monitor the excavator parameters while viewing the rearview camera image. New additions to the monitor include the DEF gauge and improved fuel efficiency.

The Tier 4 engine uses a high-pressure common-rail (HP/CR) fuel-delivery system and CEGR, DOC, and SCR aftertreatment.
