Doosan launches DX300L

Doosan launches DX300L

THE DX300LC is powered by a 213 horsepower, 6-cylinder Doosan DL08K water-cooled diesel engine that has been optimised for use with a cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) system, diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and diesel particulate filter (DPF). The engine in this configuration is optimised to reduce nitrogen oxides and after treatment is needed to reduce particulate matter to comply with interim Tier 4 (iT4) emission regulations. Swing torque increased by approximately seven per cent, which allows the excavator to swing uphill more easily, as well as improved backfilling capabilities. This leads to decreased time per foot of trench, improving productivity. Digging force has increased approximately five per cent, which allows for more power in harsh digging conditions, leading to improved cycle times and enhanced production in trenching applications.

Lifting capacity increased by approximately two percent, providing improved power out of the trench, allowing the machine to easily lift and place more material with each cycle. The boom-up speed improved by approximately three per cent, which allows for more work to be completed faster, improving cycle times, reducing truck loading time resulting in more material moved per hour.

Like all Doosan excavators, the DX300LC has a standard auto idle feature, which reduces fuel consumption and noise and creates a more comfortable environment. The auto idle feature, which can be enabled at the operator's discretion, automatically reduces the engine RPM to idle if the excavator functions are not used for a period of four seconds. The engine automatically returns to the pre-set throttle position when the operator moves a joystick or a travel function.
