Doosan Bobcat launches new High Track Excavators

Two new High Track Crawler Excavators launched by Doosan Bobcat.

Doosan Bobcat EMEA has launched the new DX160LC-5 HT and DX180LC-5 HT Stage IV compliant High Track Crawler Excavators, complementing the company’s standard configuration DX140LC-5 14 tonne and DX180LC-5 18 tonne mid-range excavators.

The new High Track models are designed to meet the needs of customers requiring a combination of higher ground clearance, a reinforced track frame and a strong traction system with reinforced upper rollers for work in harsh environments and on projects where larger travelling distances are involved.

Part of Doosan’s new generation ‘LC-5’ range of machines meeting the latest Stage IV emission regulations, the DX160LC-5 HT and DX180LC-5 HT are powered by the Perkins 1204F engine, which combines reduced fuel consumption with the power and torque of larger engines with a smaller displacement. The Perkins 1204F engine provides an output of 81.6 kW (109 HP) and 94.9 kW (127 HP) at 2000 rpm, respectively, in the DX160LC-5 HT and DX180LC-5 HT.

The features offered as standard in the operator’s cab in the DX160LC-5 HT and DX180LC-5 HT include a novel system that enables attachments to be operated from either the joystick or a two-way pedal. Being able to switch control of the auxiliary lines between the joystick and the two-way pedal greatly lessens any discomfort that may be caused by extended or repetitive use of the joystick alone to control attachments (such as a shear or a breaker). It is also helpful when precision is required – as the operator can keep full control of the excavator via the joystick while using the two-way pedal for attachments.

The auto-idling rpm on the DX160LC-5 HT and DX180LC-5 HT automatically increases from 800 rpm to 1100 rpm when the temperature goes below 10 °C.  This boosts the efficiency of the heating inside the cab.
