The DX165W-5 complies with the Stage IV European engine emissions regulations and has the same performance specification as the conventional Doosan wheeled excavator models despite having a swing radius of just 1850 mm.  

It has the same undercarriage as the DX160W-3 model, with a long wheel base to provide stability.

The DX165W-5 can lift 5.87 tonnes at 4.5 metres reach over the front (at 3 metres high) and 4.28 tonnes over the side.  According to the Korean manufacturer, this makes it better performing than any other short tail wheeled excavator in its class. 

Minimum swing diameter when fully retracted is 4.5 metres.
