Doosan Infracore Europe has launched the new DX140W-7 and DX160W-7 Stage V compliant wheeled excavators. These new ‘-7’ models provide significantly higher performance in every area than the previous generation of Stage IV machines.
Both machines combine novel operator assist features, enhanced comfort, and increased tool carrier capability with new features to boost fuel efficiency, uptime, and return on investment, with a focus on increased power, robustness, and agility.
The state-of-the-art cab on the DX140W-7 and DX160W-7 excels in terms of spaciousness and ergonomics, taking operator comfort and ease of operation to new levels. As well as a new high-quality seat, the enhanced cab offers more features as standard than other machines on the market, ensuring super controllability and high precision in all applications.
New operator assist features
The DX140W-7 and DX160W-7 wheeled excavators offer as standard the new Auto Digging Brake feature, which automatically holds the service brake in position when the vehicle stops (speed is zero), without the driver having to step on the brake pedal. The driver can activate or deactivate the Auto Digging Brake function by pressing the Auto Digging Brake button on the control panel. When the accelerator pedal is then pressed, the Auto Digging Brake function is released.
Joystick Steering is a new option, enabling the driver to steer the machine by using the joystick thumbwheel (without using the steering wheel) when working and driving in the work mode. The Joystick Steering system only works under 20 km/h when first or second-speed gears are engaged. The function is activated or deactivated by pressing the thumbwheel steering button on the control panel for at least one second.
The Load Isolation System (LIS) is another new option that enhances the operator’s driving comfort by mitigating the impact transmitted to the front of the machine when driving off-road on uneven and tough terrain. The Boom Suspension (LIS) function is also actuated by pressing a button on the control panel – it can be activated when the driving speed is 5 km/h ± 0.5 km/h or higher, and the function is deactivated at 4 km/h ± 0.5 km/h.
