Doosan’s new 10t DX100W-7 wheeled excavator.

Featuring a new look design, the DX100W-7 10.7t wheeled excavator has been launched by Doosan. The 10t weight class represented by the machine is new to the Doosan range and the DX100W-7 offers a high-performance solution for customers looking for a wheeled excavator.

The DX100W-7 offers the best compromise between compactness and agility, complemented by excellent productivity and high-end comfort. It’s very important that this type of machine can operate in very restricted areas, so the DX100W-7 can be equipped with the option of four-wheel steering and a crabbing mode, with two0-wheel steering as standard.

As well as agility in confined spaces, the DX100W-7 offers the highest safety and specifications on the market. The integral 1.35t counterweight ensures the highest stability for lifting work in combination with the articulated boom and long arm, which together provide a larger working range than other machines in this class, despite having similar boom and arm lengths. The counterweight also has a novel design, offering the best maintenance access in the industry, from the rear of the machine and from ground level.

The articulated boom ensures that the operator is able to position the machine as close as possible to trucks during loading. In addition, the DX100W-7 offers maximised lifting capacities and digging forces, as well as satisfying a requirement in some countries for a wheeled excavator with a travelling height of under 4.0m.

Other safety features can be found in the state-of-the-art ROPS cab on the DX100W-7, where from a premium seat as standard, the operator can use the large eight-inch touchscreen to easily browse through all of the machine settings, including the view from the standard side and rear view cameras. The availability on the DX100W-7 of an optional 360-degree all-around view camera, linked with an optional ultrasonic detection system is another exclusive for a machine of this size.

Additional features in and around the cab include:

  • DAB audio (hands-free and Bluetooth)
  • parallel wiper system
  • LED work lights as standard
  • thumbwheel joystick
  • cup holder and power socket
The Doosan DX100W-7 wheeled excavator can lift 2.7t at its maximum reach of 4.0m

With 100hp at 2,000rpm provided by a Doosan D34 G2 Stage V engine, the DX100W-7 offers the highest engine power, hydraulic flow and traction force in this class. The high flow from the smooth and precise hydraulic system can be used to drive all kinds of attachments. In addition, the DX100W-7 has two different pumps providing independent hydraulic flows for the transmission and to fully power hydraulic tools on the front end.

The D34 engine offers a new solution to exceed Stage V regulations without exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), that boosts the quantity of air available during combustion, increasing the temperature of the process and greatly reducing the amount of particulates produced. This is combined with super-efficient DOC/DPF and SCR after-treatment technology to ensure minimal emissions. An enhanced cooling system offers many advantages such as higher fuel efficiency, less noise and increased durability.

A newly improved, durable and robust chassis frame is used in the DX100W-7, featuring a new type of pinning system, compatible with both front and rear undercarriage attachments and designed for mounting the optional four-wheel steering system. The new chassis design ensures that attachments can be added and exchanged later without modifying the frame.

The new DX100W-7 model is factory-installed as standard with Doosan’s state-of-the-art DoosanConnect TMS 3.0 wireless fleet monitoring system. The DoosanConnect system offers a web-based fleet management solution which is very useful for monitoring the performance and security of machines and promoting preventative maintenance. It’s also available as a standard feature on all new Doosan excavators (from 14t), all new Doosan wheel loaders and Doosan ADTs.
