This 22.4 tonne machine is powered by Doosan’s 6-cylinder turbocharged DL06P water cooled diesel engine which helps the new machine deliver 10% more power and 13% more torque than its predecessor. The DX235NLC-5 is factory-fitted with the new Core TMS wireless fleet monitoring system, a feature not previously available as standard on Doosan excavators but now common to all LC-5 generation machines above 14 tonnes.
The cab is equipped with a new Trip Meter Setting screen which allows operators to check fuel consumption daily, or over any preferred period, directly from the control panel.
Also new is the Smart Power Control (SPC) system to optimise balance between the pumps’ output and the engine power.
The smaller (17 tonnes) DX170W-5 wheeled excavator is also seen for the first time here at Intermat. Again, this model boasts more power and lower fuel consumption than its predecessor thanks to the Stage IV-compliant DL06P engine.
By adding an extra 220kg to the counterweight and an extra 50mm to the wheel base, Doosan has also boosted the machine’s lifting capacity by 10%. Like the larger DX235NLC-5, the new wheelie has Doosan’s Core TMS fleet management system fitted as standard.
