New eight tonne excavator from Doosan

9 Oct 13 Doosan has replaced the DX80R excavator in its catalogue with the new Stage IIIB compliant DX85R-3.

The reduced tail swing (RTS) machine is in the eight-tonne class and is now powered by a Yanmar 4TNV98C diesel engine providing 44.3kW of power at a rated speed of 2100rpm. It uses exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and diesel particulate filter (DPF) after-treatment technologies to meet the Stage IIIB emission requirements.

Doosan says that the new model is 10% more powerful as well as more fuel deficient than the predecessor. The bucket digging force of 6.3 tonne also represents an increase of 12% over the previous model. The traction force has also been increased by 7% to 6.6 tonne.

New features include a load sensing system that improves hydraulic performance and allows smoother combined operations.
