Doosan Bobcat adds new excavators to range


Doosan Bobcat has launched two new High Track crawler excavators, adding to the mid-range series of machines.

The DX160LC-5 HT and DX180LC-5 HT models are both Stage IV compliant, with a Perkins 1204F engine providing an output of 81.6kW at 2,000rpm and a travelling speed range of between 2.24km/h and 3.68km/h.

The DX160LC-5 HT excavator combines the upper structure from the DX140LC-5 14-tonne model with an 18-tonne class high track undercarriage system, increasing the ground clearance from 410mm in the DX140LC-5 to an impressive 615mm.

The DX180LC-5 HT is an enhanced version of the DX180LC-5 excavator, incorporating a reinforced structure and a carefully re-engineered, high performance braking system, offering the same ground clearance of 615mm, compared to 460mm in the DX180LC-5.

A Doosan Bobcat spokeswoman said, “The new High Track models are designed to meet the needs of customers requiring a combination of higher ground clearance, a reinforced track frame and a strong traction system with reinforced upper rollers for work in harsh environments and on projects where larger travelling distances are involved.

“They are particularly suited to the forestry industry, where the higher ground clearance, durable travelling system and the traction force allow them to move with ease over rough terrain, negotiate obstacles such as fallen tree trunks and to pull trailers loaded with wood.”
