Doosan expands mini excavator lineup with three new models

Customers can choose between a standard arm or a long-arm option. The long-arm option gives operators more dig depth and reach and reduces the amount of machine repositioning for enhanced productivity.

Doosan Infracore North America, LLC, is bolstering its mini excavator lineup with the addition of three new models in the 3.5-, 4- and 5-ton classes: the Doosan DX35-5, DX42-5 and DX50-5. 

Doosan now offers its U.S. and Canadian customers a wider range of excavators – from 3.5 to 50 tons. The updated Doosan mini excavator line now includes the popular 3.5-, 4- and 5-ton size classes, complementing the existing DX63-3 and DX85R-3 models. 

"Doosan customers expect high-performing, productive and reliable machines when they see the Doosan orange," says Aaron Kleingartner, marketing manager for Doosan Infracore North America. "Now our customers who need a 3.5-, 4- or 5-ton mini excavator can purchase, lease or rent a machine from their local Doosan construction equipment dealer."

The expanded mini excavator line allows Doosan dealers to provide a wider range of products to their customers. "We hope with the additional models, our Doosan dealers will have the ability to grow their businesses and be even more successful in their local markets," Kleingartner says. "Also, it's important to note that these three models will be manufactured in the United States for fast delivery to our U.S. and Canadian dealers and customers."

Comfort features
Doosan DX35-5, DX42-5 and DX50-5 mini excavators will each be available with an enclosed cab, including heat and air conditioning, or an open canopy configuration. Both configurations allow for excellent all-around visibility, especially to the excavator's attachment.

A standard suspension seat provides all-day comfort for operators, while a strategically positioned deluxe instrument panel provides valuable machine information for operators. A standard keyless start system helps to reduce unauthorized machine use and theft.

Customers can choose between a standard arm or a long-arm option. The long-arm option gives operators more dig depth and reach and reduces the amount of machine repositioning for enhanced productivity. A blade comes standard with all three new models, and an angle blade is available as a factory option. An angle blade makes it easier for mini excavator operators to perform backfill tasks more efficiently, as well as create slopes and swales.

Attachment offering
All three new Doosan mini excavators can be equipped with a quick coupler, bucket and thumb attachment package. Quick couplers allow mini excavator operators to easily change attachments to match the trenching task to the desired bucket width, minimizing over-digging. A thumb is a popular attachment to use with a bucket to effectively grab, lift and place items, such as debris in site preparation or hardscape materials for a landscaping project.

Operators have access to 17 to 20 gallons per minute of auxiliary hydraulic flow, depending on the model, to provide power to other attachments, such as augers, breakers and plate compactors. 
 
DX35-5
The new Tier 4–compliant DX35-5 is now the smallest Doosan mini excavator available. This 3-ton class excavator is designed with zero tail swing, which makes it an ideal machine for operating on congested jobsites and working next to other objects. A dual flange track roller system gives the machine greater over-the-side digging capacity, exceptional slewing and a smooth, comfortable ride. A roomy cab adds to operator comfort and tall, wide windows provide the operator with excellent visibility for enhanced productivity and safety. 

DX42-5
The conventional tail swing, Tier 4–compliant DX42-5 has strong bucket breakout force, dig depth and reach in a highly maneuverable excavator in the 4- to 5-ton class. Its relatively narrow width for a machine in its class provides operators greater ability to navigate through doorways, gates and other obstacles. 

DX50-5
The 4- to 5-ton size class, Tier 4–compliant DX50-5 enables customers to operate in tight spaces with superior digging performance. It is a minimal tail swing excavator with less than one inch of tail overhang. 

Authorized Doosan dealers are currently accepting customer orders for these new models, and machines are expected to arrive at dealerships in mid-July 2019.

New joystick steering and intelligent assistance systems for Liebherr wheel loaders at bauma 2019

At Bauma 2019, Liebherr presented a comprehensive range of intelligent assistance systems for selected wheel loaders from the corporate group. These include, for example, active rear person recognition, front area monitoring and the Skyview 360° camera system. These solutions increase safety and reduce the burden on the machine operator, whose everyday work with the wheel loader brings with it a significant weight of responsibility. Another assistance system is the new weighing device, which functions as a control scale over a large lifting range. All the new assistance systems have been developed by Liebherr and are therefore fully integrated into the machine control. This also applies to the new joystick steering for models from the L 526 to the L 586 XPower. The intuitive operation of the joystick enables the operator to steer accurately and without fatigue, as its position always corresponds to the wheel loader's current articulation angle.
