Designed in the company’s engineering centre for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Dobris in the Czech Republic, the new DX10Z zero tail swing (ZTS) mini-excavator has been launched by Doosan.
The DX10Z is ideal for construction, rental, demolition, landscaping and any other applications that need high performance, compactness, comfort and stability in one machine.
The DX10Z is truly compact and easy to transport, offering a width of only 710 mm when the tracks and the front blade are fully retracted, allowing the machine to pass through most doors. In addition, to make access to the job site even easier, a foldable TOPS (Tip Over Protective Structure) canopy meeting ISO 12117 requirements is standard on the model.
The integral sliding blade extensions eliminate loose parts that require storage space and can be easily lost. The blade extensions can simply be slid into their inner position to reduce the overall width.
Whilst the DX10Z is very compact, there is no compromise on performance. Thanks to the design of the undercarriage, the DX10Z provides excellent lifting capacities for this size of excavator, combined with a maximum digging depth of 1.82 m and a machine weight of 1176 kg.
Plus, while most manufacturers have had to compromise on operator comfort in their mini-excavators, the new DX10Z does not, providing an operator environment resembling that found in larger excavators. With plenty of room for the operator’s legs, lower machine noise and variable-position joysticks that you see in bigger excavators rather than levers, the DX10Z is a very easy machine to operate.
The position of the joystick controls on the DX10Z can be adjusted to suit different operators. Both left and right consoles, which serve as comfortable arm rests, need to be lowered and locked in order to operate the machine. Thanks to a standard second speed range, the DX10Z is able to move quickly around job sites, complete projects faster and work more efficiently.
