“The new DX800LC-5B tracked excavator, with an operating weight of 78 500kgs, is currently the largest machine in the Doosan range of construction and mining equipment. This machine has been designed for high productivity, fuel efficiency, minimal downtime and greater safety in harsh operating conditions,” says Darrel Holton, managing director, DISA Equipment. The DX800LC-5B has a re-designed structure, with a heavy-duty front and improved undercarriage. It has been fitted with many customised
components that ensure continuous operation in arduous environments
with minimum to no downtime.
Fuel saving technologies include Smart Power Control (SPC) and a highly-efficient cooling system. The SPC allows the machine to provide optimised control for engine speed and torque, based on different workloads, thereby reducing unnecessary fuel consumption.
On-site safety and improved operator comfort have been an important
focus. New LED work lights enable safe operation after dark and an
Around View Monitor (AVM) provides a clear 360°view for the operator,
from inside the cabin.
