Doosan unveil new demolition excavator model
South Korean manufacturer expands equipment offering with top-of-the-range DX530DM
DOOSAN have strengthened their high-reach demolition excavator range with the launch of the new DX530DM. Like the DX235DM model, which was launched earlier in the year, the DX530DM offers increased operational flexibility, thanks to a modular boom design and hydraulic lock mechanism.
According to Doosan, these innovative features help make it simple to change between a demolition boom and an earthmoving boom for different types of work on the same project.
Another key feature of the DX530DM is the hydraulically adjustable undercarriage, which allows the machine to extend to a maximum width of 4.37m to provide optimum stability when working on demolition sites.
A lot of effort has also gone into the transportation of the high-reach excavator – the width of the undercarriage, for example, can be retracted hydraulically to 2.97m in the narrow width position.
When equipped with the digging boom in the straight configuration, the DX530DM can work to a maximum height of 13.5m. For enhanced efficiency, the multi-boom design allows the earthmoving boom to be mounted in two different ways, providing increased flexibility and a total of three different configurations on the same base machine.
Typical of the design of all new Doosan demolition excavators, the DX530DM machine has a high visibility, tiltable cab offering a 30-degree tilting angle. Other key features of the Doosan high-reach machines include: a cabin-mounted falling object guard (FOG); safety valves for the boom, intermediate boom and arm cylinders; and a stability warning system.
The top-of the-range DX530DM is expected to be joined by a third model in the Doosan demolition excavator line-up – the DX380DM – which will be launched in the first half of 2021.
