Doosan will display the largest of its excavators, the new 78-ton DX700LC excavator in booth G-100 at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas, March 22-26, 2011. The display will also include the new, minimum-tail-swing DX235LCR excavator.  

Powered by a 463-hp turbocharged diesel engine, the DX700LC has an operating weight of 156,748 lbs. with standard boom and arm, 35.4-in. double-grouser shoes and 4.32-cubic-yard bucket.

With a tail swing radius of 5 ft. 6 ins. and a tail swing of just 3.75 ins. over standard 31.5-in. shoes, the 53,600-lb. DX235LCR excavator is designed to work on congested jobsites such as roadways without blocking traffic in the adjacent lane.

The Doosan exhibit will also include three current-model machines equipped with Interim Tier 4 compliant engines — a DL450 wheel loader, a DX300LC excavator and an MT41 articulated dump truck — as well as excavators equipped with Doosan’s new ROPS-certified cabs.

Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment America, headquartered in West Fargo, N.D., markets the Doosan brand of products that includes large excavators, wheel loaders and articulated dump trucks. Doosan has signed more than 100 heavy equipment dealer locations in North America.
