Doosan adds third demolition excavator
By Steve Ducker07 October 2021
Doosan Infracore Europe has launched the DX380DM-7, which becomes the third model in the company’s new high reach demolition excavator range after the DX235DM and DX530DM models introduced last year.
Features include a 30° tilting angle, while the maximum pin height of the demolition boom on the DX380DM-7 is 23 m (75 ft).
The DX380DM-7 also retains a hydraulically adjustable undercarriage, which extends to a maximum width of 4.37 m (14 ft) to provide optimum stability when working on demolition sites and can be retracted hydraulically to 2.97 m (9.7 ft) for transporting.
The adjusting mechanism is based on a permanently lubricated, internal cylinder design which minimises resistance during the movement and helps to prevent damage to the components.
In common with the other high reach models, the DX380DM-7 provides increased flexibility with a modular boom design and hydraulic lock mechanism.
This is said to allow an easy change between a demolition boom and an earthmoving boom to accomplish different types of work on the same project, using the same machine.
When equipped with the digging boom in the straight configuration, the DX380DM-7 can work to a maximum height of 10.43 m (34 ft).
