Updated mini excavators

Doosan Infracore North America, LLC, introduces the new DX42-5K and the DX50-5K mini excavators.

The excavators feature innovations to increase machine performance, versatility, operator comfort and reliability.

Doosan DX series mini excavators

The Doosan Dx-series excavators’ compact size and mobility make them valuable for commercial and residential developments and landscape projects.

A new dual-flange track roller system works in tandem with an enhanced counterweight for better over-the-side digging and lifting capabilities. An integrated lift eye allows for easier craning and lifting. Operators now have the option to remove the bucket when lifting to maximize capacity with the new secure lifting point. The new models have a high-performing fuel-efficient 3-cylinder Doosan diesel engine. Six tie-downs provide extra security during transport. A long-arm option is available.

The dozer blade’s top edge features a more durable design for added strength. The blade and frame are also designed with an angled top and rounded edges to keep material from building up on the blade and improve debris shedding. An angle blade remains an option for both models.

Easy-to-reach auxiliary hydraulic couplers are now located on the mini excavator’s arm. The repositioned couplers help reduce the time needed for operators to connect the hydraulic hoses. In addition, a new clamp diverter valve option allows operators to quickly connect another attachment without disconnecting the hydraulic clamp hoses.

The mini excavators have an enclosed, air-conditioned cab with taller and wider windows that offer better visibility and foldable pedals offer more operator foot room. The ergonomic design also includes wider seats, responsive joystick controls, and new joystick buttons to provide additional hands-on control functions. An optional canopy is available for customers who prefer an open operating station.

Operators can monitor and troubleshoot with additional easily available data on the 5-inch display panel. These models are available with an optional integrated rearview camera for enhanced all-around visibility.
