More Power With Doosan DX140LCR Reduced Tail Swing Excavator

August 2013, Vol. 68 No. 8

Doosan is adding more power, performance and speed to the 16-ton excavator market with the iT4 DX140LCR-3. Presenting contractors with an ideal machine for operating in tight quarters, the tail swing radius on the DX140LCR-3 is only 5 feet, which results in a tail swing overhang of just 9 inches over the side of the machine.

At the same time, the 12-foot 4-inch overall track length provides exceptional stability for digging and lifting operations. An optional 102-inch-wide dozer blade enhances the machine’s versatility.

The DX140LCR-3 features an electronic power optimizing system, which provides optimum power and fuel efficiency via four work modes, auto-idle and machine diagnostics. Operators can work more effectively with multiple operating modes, easy-to-read display monitors and precise control levers. The selectable work modes permit operators to get maximum efficiency and fuel economy in specific applications. A maximum speed of 2.9 mph for the excavator provides more efficient movement around jobsites.

A straight travel pedal is available for the DX140LCR-3. This new option streamlines the travel and transport of the machine. It is ideal for the straightforward and backward travel common in trenching applications, as it provides a single foot pedal in the right-front corner of the cab floor that operates both tracks.

Operator comfort is enhanced inside the Roll-Over Protective Structure cabin. Both a height lever and tilting function were added to the air suspension heated seat to allow the operator to find an optimum seating position. The cabin mounting mechanism has been improved with a thickened dampening plate, and an internal coil spring has been added to reduce cabin vibration 20 percent, enabling operators to work longer days with less fatigue.

The Doosan DX140LC-3 is covered by an innovative 48-Hour Parts Guarantee. The program guarantees that if a “machine-debilitating” part is needed, Doosan will deliver it directly to the end user within two business days or Doosan will pay for a replacement machine rental. The 48-Hour Parts Guarantee is subject to carrier delivery restrictions and/or governmental agency delays. doosanequipment.com
