Six new Doosan diggers for DCV Engineering

With headquarters in Wellingborough in Northamptonshire, plant hire business DCV Engineering Ltd, has expanded the company’s rental fleet with the purchase of four new DX140LCR-5 15.5-tonne and two DX225LC-5 22.1-tonne crawler excavators from Doosan. Supplied by Pioneer Plant Ltd, the local Authorised Doosan dealer based in Leicester, the new DX140LCR-5 and DX225LC-5 models are now part of a comprehensive fleet of excavators available from DCV Engineering, covering all sizes from 1- to 30-tonne.

The Doosan DX140LCR-5 reduced tail swing model provides a 6% increase in power and a 3% increase in torque over the previous version of this crawler excavator. With a focus on greater power, robustness and versatility, the DX140LCR-5 is powered by the Perkins 4.5 engine. Swing torque has also been boosted by 28%. In addition to the efficient engine, new systems and functions have been incorporated to reduce fuel consumption significantly − by up to 10% compared to the previous generation machine.

The Doosan DX225LC-5 crawler excavator is powered by the well-proven 6-cylinder, turbocharged Doosan DL06P water-cooled diesel engine, providing a high power output of 166hp at 1,800rpm. The DX225LC-5 therefore combines plenty of power with high torque at a lower number of revolutions, ensuring higher reliability over time than other 21-tonne machines, which have 4-cylinder engines running at much higher revs, reckons Doosan.
