Doosan Excavator

The 102-net-horsepower Doosan DX140LCR-3 crawler excavator is a reduced tail swing machine that offers reduced machine length and added maneuverability for operating in tight quarters. 

Doosan 140 clr The tail swing radius is 5 feet, which works well in congested areas and minimizes the potential for machine damage. At the same time, the 12-foot-3-inch overall track length on the DX140LCR-3 provides stability for digging and lifting.

The DX140LCR-3 features an electronic power-optimizing system (EPOS), which provides optimum power and fuel efficiency via four work modes, auto-idle throttle and machine diagnostics. Operators can work more effectively with multiple operating modes, easy-to-read display monitors and precise control levers. The selectable work modes — Digging, Lifting, Breaker and Shear — permit operators to get maximum efficiency and fuel economy in specific applications.

Quick look at the specs:

Horsepower (net): 102 hp
Operating weight: 33,510 lb.
Tail swing radius: 5 ft.
Max. digging reach (ground): 27 ft. 11 in.
Max. digging depth: 19 ft. 8 in.
Max. loading height: 23 ft. 3 in.
Bucket digging force: 24,471 lbf.
Arm digging force: 13,228 lbf.

A straight travel pedal option is available to streamlines the travel and transport of the machine. It is ideal for the straight forward and backward travel common in trenching applications, using a single foot pedal in the right-front corner of the cab floor that operates both tracks. 

Doosan continues to focus on operator comfort with a height lever and tilting function for the air-suspension heated seat. The cabin mounting mechanism has a thickened dampening plate, and an internal coil spring helps to reduce cabin vibration up to 20 percent, enabling operators to work longer days with less fatigue.

Five attachments pair with the excavator: Breaker, clamp/thumb, ditching bucket, plate compactor and the wedge lock coupler. Cllick here for more information
