Doosan DX225LC-5 Excavator Offers Increased Reach And Dig Depth

Doosan DX225LC-5 excavator with 162-net-horsepower has a reliable design for demanding construction applications. The DX225LC-5 is available in a super-long-reach (SLR) configuration designed for increased reach and dig depth. The SLR model has more than 20 feet of digging reach than the standard configuration and can dig to a depth of 38 feet, 2 inches. The SLR configuration is popular for dredging applications in rivers and lakes.

Throughout the DX225LC-5, you’ll find durable construction and reliable design. The boom design and construction improves uptime. The swing gear is solid and stable, while the D-type frame and x-chassis adds strength. Bushings and ultra hard wear discs are designed for longer service intervals.

Simple joystick controls make precise machine movements easy, while buttons allow of additional equipment such as hydraulic clamps. An optional floor pedal can be used to control two-way auxiliary hydraulics. In addition, the sound-suppressed cab keeps machine noise low to reduce operator fatigue.

Ease of maintenance is another strength. Centralized grease points, easy access and efficient filters minimize shop time.
