Doosan has launched the new DX235DM, the first of the company’s new range of high reach demolition excavators.
The company said that two further models in the range, the DX380DM and DX530DM, will follow later this year.
Typical of the design of the new demolition machines, the DX235DM has a high visibility, tiltable cab, particularly suited to high reach demolition applications and offering a 30° tilting angle.
A key feature of the excavator, which is shared with the other models in the range, is a modular boom design and hydraulic lock mechanism on the machine, while the design makes it simple to change between a demolition boom and an earthmoving boom for different types of work on the same project.
For the DX235DM equipped with the 18 m (59 ft) long demolition boom, the working range allows the machine to work with a demolition attachment to a maximum height of 16 m (52 ft). The recommended maximum combined weight for the attachment and quick coupler in this mode is 2.1 t.
The machine has a hydraulically adjustable undercarriage, which extends to a maximum width of 3.74 m (12 ft) to provide optimum stability when working on demolition sites. The width of the undercarriage can be retracted hydraulically to 2.54 m (8 ft 4 in) in the narrow width position, described as ideal for transporting the machine.
