Doosan has launched the new DX225LCA crawler excavator for Middle East and African markets
The operating weight of the new DX225LCA excavator varies from 21.5 to 23.2 tonne, depending on the configuration. The new model offers a maximum bucket capacity from 0.39 to 1.28 m3, a digging depth of 6620 mm, a reach of 9900 mm and a digging height of 9750 mm.
The DX225LCA is equipped with an air to air intercooler 6-cylinder Doosan DB58TIS Tier II compliant engine, developing 110 kW (148 HP) of power at 1900 rpm (SAE J1349). The DX225LCA also provides impressive bucket and dipper stick breakout forces of 15.2 and 15.3 tonne, respectively.
Replacing the previous SOLAR model, this new generation machine offers a new design particularly suited to the specific needs of the Middle East and African markets, combining high robustness with a number of important new functionalities and technical improvements.
Selected via the new LCD colour display panel in the cab, there are three operating modes for the new DX225LCA excavator: Power, Standard and the Economy mode, offering a significant reduction in fuel consumption.
In addition, the incorporation of new generation components and an optimal separation of the hydraulic flow output needed for travel and the front workgroup results in a significant acceleration of movements with better smoothness and proportional flow.
Elsewhere in the cab, the space for the operator has been significantly increased, while the comfort, seat and joystick controls have all been improved. The DX225LCA excavator is available as standard with a new automatically adjusting air conditioning system offering a 20 per cent greater cooling capacity with five aeration modes.
To match the increased performance and productivity, particular attention has been given towards reinforcing the front workgroup with thicker steel and additional reinforcement plates, increasing reliability and durability.
Wide steel doors provide full protection for the pump and radiator compartments at the same time as ensuring excellent access for maintenance. Greasing intervals has been optimised by utilising reinforced bushings and shims, whilst maintenance intervals have been increased thanks to installation of the latest generation filters. In addition to the standard filters, the machine is equipped with a turbo III air filter eliminating 99 per cent of particle emissions.
