Doosan launches new DX10Z mini-excavator

Published:  27 February, 2017

A new zero tail swing (ZTS) mini-excavator – the DX10Z– has been launched by Doosan.

The DX10Z is compact and easy to transport, with a width of only 710mm when the tracks and the front blade are fully retracted, allowing the machine to pass through most doors. A foldable TOPS (Tip Over Protective Structure) canopy meeting ISO 12117 requirements is standard and makes access to sites even easier.

The integral sliding blade extensions eliminate loose parts that require storage space and which could be easily lost. Instead, they can simply be slid into their inner position to reduce the overall width.

The DX10Z has a maximum digging depth of 1.82m and a machine weight of 1176kg and features a variable-position joysticks, rather than levers, that can be adjusted to suit different operators.

The hydraulically expandable undercarriage provides the DX10Z with one of the widest stances in the mini-excavator market. When extended, the width of the square footprint becomes 1100mm, providing more stability.

The offset tail swing of the DX10Z provides the operator with full confidence so that they can concentrate on the job at hand. The use of metal covers and a large cast counterweight provide corner protection and extra durability.

The DX10Z is powered by the Kubota D722 engine which offers the low vibration and noise levels needed when working in confined areas.

The cooling system is vital when working in confined spaces where air flow may be minimal. And the demolition kit provides extra cooling so the hydraulic breaker can be used continuously, even in warm environments. This is unique in the market and makes this model ideal for indoor demolition projects.
