Crawler sees fuel use cut

Q: What is your product?

The Doosan Stage IIIB- compliant DX380LC-3 large crawler excavator.

Q: How does it work?

The excavator is designed to offer outstanding performance and fuel efficiency compared with other machines in the 34- to 42-tonne market segment.   

Q: Where would it ideally be used?

It is ideal not only for larger earthmoving and construction/demolition applications but also for use at MRFs and landfill sites. 

Q: How is it different?

The DX380LC-3 excavator offers several features as standard, including improved visibility, comfort, controlla-bility and ease of operation.

It combines these with a host of new features.  

Q: What are the benefits?

Up to 22% increase in the productivity to fuel consumption ratio; 23% more pump flow; a 15% increase in drawbar pull; and a 15% increase in front-lifting capacity.

Q Any savings?

It offers a drastic reduction in fuel consumption using a combination of features such as lower engine speed and improved electronic management of pump/engine/main control valve.

Q: What about maintenance?

The engine bonnet is in four parts to improve service-ability and ease of opening. Filters, valves and batteries are within easy reach.

Q: What is its lifespan?

Providing outstanding stability, durability and robustness for extra tough applications, the heavy-duty undercarriage on the DX380LC-3 excavator is the same as that used in the larger > 40-tonne class DX420LC model. This means its service life has been extended significantly.

Q: How is it future-proofed?

Compared with the previous model, the new generation DX380LC-3 goes beyond the latest EU emissions regulations. 

Q: How many have you sold and where?

The DX380LC-3 is intended for Stage IIIB markets throughout Europe.   

Q: Anything else?

All functions can be controlled either from the instrument panel or via a jog/shuttle control next to the joystick, a feature exclusive to Doosan excavators. As standard, the operator has access to an attachment select and setting function, with multiple recordable preset values.
