Doosan adds new DX230WMH-5 to Material Handler Range.
Doosan expand its Material Handler range with the launch of the new 23 tonne DX230WMH-5 model. This new model joins the recently introduced DX250WMH-5 25 tonne machine. Both models are aimed at material handling duties in recycling, demolition, solid waste and forestry industries.
Like the existing larger model, the DX230WMH-5 has two arm cylinders for extra balance and more stability and lesser movement when using attachments such as grapples. The maximum pin height in the DX230WMH-5 is 11.7 m, the maximum operating reach is 10.1 m and the maximum working depth is 4.2 m.
Another special feature which is standard on the DX230WMH-5 is the elevating cab, which provides excellent visibility and high flexibility for the operator. Easily accessed from ground level, the cab height can be adjusted to a maximum elevated height of 2.5 m to give the operator the best view of the work in hand, especially when combined with the rear view camera display in the cab. The operator can adjust the cab height from their position inside the cab, with an emergency lowering lever installed at the rear of the seat.
In the cab, a standard 7-inch colour LCD display provides helpful maintenance history and machine monitoring information. It also displays a video feed from the standard rear-view and side view cameras, which are uniquely placed to give even better visibility. A split screen mode displays a camera view and vital machine information at the same time. The feed from the side view camera can be reviewed independently or in a split screen mode.
Designed to carry out the toughest tasks, the DX230WMH-5 is built with front and rear stabilizers, and a boom and arm specifically designed for material handling tasks. The DX230WMH-5 material handler is easy to operate with ergonomic joysticks and a steering wheel. The machine comes equipped with two-way auxiliary and rotate circuit hydraulics to improve efficiency. The operator can use buttons on the joysticks or an optional foot pedal to control auxiliary attachments. A range of options such as gooseneck and straight arms, solid tyres and FOGS as well as different attachments to match customers’ applications are also available.
