Doosan Improves Fuel Efficiency and Productivity with New DX350 Excavator

ATLANTA, January 29, 2009 ” Doosan Infracore America is rolling out a new addition to its line of crawler excavators.  The Doosan DX350 excavator, from the company™s DX Series of crawler excavators, were designed around Doosan™s four quality principles: strength, durability, reliability and comfort.


The DX350 will replace the current DX340. The new DX350 has more horsepower, increased breakout force, and improved fuel efficiency, which all contribute to greater productivity and enhanced performance.


The DX350™s specifications and performance are ideal for the needs of the North American customer who demands greater performance and the best possible operating cost per hour on today™s job sites where time and budgets are precious, said Chris Neville, general manager of sales and marketing for Doosan Infracore.


The Doosan DX350 features:


  • Increased production and improved fuel economy thanks to the electronic optimization of the hydraulic system and the new generation DOOSAN Tier III engine.

  • Greasing intervals have been extended to 250 hours because of the use of new polymer shims and the new design of bushings used at the boom, arm, and bucket locations.

  • Lower operating costs by means of easier routine maintenance, extended service intervals and increased fuel efficiency.

  • An ergonomically correct cab design fully automatic heating and air conditioning, a six-way adjustable seat with lumbar support, and a telescoping control stand.

  • A dual-walled muffler that reduces noise levels.

  • Convenient hose routing, wiring harness layout and filter placement.
