New Stage V Compliant Mini-Excavators from Doosan

Doosan Construction Equipment is enhancing the company’s range of mini-excavators with the launch of the new Stage V compliant 2.7 tonne DX27z and 3.5 tonne DX35z zero tail swing (ZTS) models. The new models provide a best-in-class mix of superb stability, smooth controllability and high digging forces, complemented by low weights for easy transportation.

As a true ZTS machine (even with the optional heavy counterweight), the DX27z offers the highest flexibility of movements when working close to walls, coupled with best-in-class 360-degree stability and a low weight for easy transportation. The DX27z combines excellent performance characteristics with the largest cab for this size of machine on the market. With the optional long arm and a premium cab, the DX27z offers the digging output and operator comfort of much larger excavators, making it the machine of choice for work in busy urban areas.

High Operator Comfort

The new Doosan DX27z and DX35z mini-excavators introduce many state-of-the-art features and offer enhanced levels of quality and robustness. The larger operator space and premium interior deliver best-in-class comfort with an improved entry/exit thanks to new ergonomic 3D handles and a wider door. The new cab also features significantly larger windows and narrower pillars giving market-leading all-around visibility.

Inside the low noise-low vibration cab, the operator has the benefit of new joysticks and new optimized metal travel pedals. The new minimal effort joysticks offer further enhanced controllability and smoothness of working functions.

Increased Features and Options

A new blade design offers more robustness and enhanced self-cleaning ability. The redesigned boom cylinder guard is complemented by increased protection of hoses, pipes and valves on the workgroup.

As with all other Doosan excavators, the DX27z and DX35z offer easy access for regular maintenance and servicing. Exterior covers have been designed to be easy to open and close.
