The new 48.8-hp Doosan DX50Z-7 mini excavator is part of the 5-metric-ton size class. Its Zero-Tail Swing design makes it a popular choice for customers working in confined spaces on construction jobsites or landscaping projects.

A standard enclosed cab with heat and air conditioning will keep operators working comfortably throughout the day. A heated adjustable seat is available as an option for additional operator comfort.

Customers can upgrade to a steel track option for use in jobsite conditions that may otherwise damage rubber tracks. Standard attachments for the DX50Z-7 mini excavator include a bucket, quick coupler and a thumb.

In 2022, Doosan Infracore North America plans to introduce a completely new lineup of mini excavators. The new lineup will include Doosan mini excavator models not previously offered to customers in North America. These models will include conventional tail swing, reduced tail swing and Zero Tail Swing configurations. And for the first time, the DoosanCONNECT Telematics management system is available as standard equipment on each new Doosan mini excavator.
