Doosan introduces high-track diggers

Korean construction machinery manufacturer Doosan has launched two new excavators with raised crawler tracks for higher ground clearance.

The new DX160LC-5 HT and DX180LC-5 HT models are designed to meet the needs of those needing a combination of higher ground clearance, a reinforced track frame and a strong traction system with reinforced upper rollers. 

Doosan says that its new High Track models are particularly suited to the forestry industry, where the higher ground clearance, durable travelling system and the traction force allow them to move with ease over rough terrain, negotiate obstacles such as fallen tree trunks and to pull trailers loaded with wood.

The DX160LC-5 HT has the upper structure from the DX140LC-5 14 tonne model on an 18-tonne class high track undercarriage system, increasing the ground clearance from 410 mm in the DX140LC-5 to 615 mm.

The DX180LC-5 HT is an enhanced version of the DX180LC-5 excavator, incorporating a reinforced structure and a re-engineered braking system, also offering ground clearance of 615 mm, compared to 460 mm in the standard version.
