Doosan extends its crawler excavator reach


Doosan has announced the launch of an additional crawler excavator with extended reach features. The DX225SLR-5 super long machine joins the existing range of Stage IV-compliant crawler excavators on the company’s books.

Featuring 8.5m boom and 6.2m arm components, the new model is an all-round vehicle designed for excavating lakes, cleaning settling banks, drainage work, digging in sand and gravel pits, slope forming and other long reach tasks.

To carry out these applications, the DX225SLR-5 has a maximum digging reach of 15.38m, a maximum digging depth of 11.65m and a maximum digging height of 13.08m. The bucket digging force is 10.0 tonne and the arm digging force is 6.0 tonne.

Turbocharged power
With an operating weight of 24.4 tonne, the DX225SLR-5 is powered by a six-cylinder, turbocharged Doosan DL06P water-cooled diesel engine, providing a high power output of 124kW (166hp) at 1800rpm. As a result, the DX225SLR-5 combines its super long reach capability with unmatched high performance, operating features, fuel efficiency, reliability and durability.

Kevin Lynch, a Doosan marketing manager, said, “The DX225SLR-5 offers convenience and lower costs by meeting Stage IV emission regulations through the use of cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and selective catalyst reduction (SCR) aftertreatment technologies.

“With the DL06P engine, the DX225SLR-5 ensures trouble-free performance as it operates without the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF).

“Already excelling in spaciousness and ergonomics, the cab on the DX225SLR-5 is also bigger than that in the previous DX225SLR-3 and has been further refined for outstanding operator comfort and ease of operation.

“The features offered as standard in the cab are among the best in the market and include super controllability with a system that enables attachments to be operated from either the joystick or a two-way pedal.”
