Doosan to showcase mini-excavators at ARA Show

By Belinda Smart08 September 2021

Doosan will display two mini-excavators for the rental market during the 2021 American Rental Association (ARA) annual trade show and convention, from 17-20 October 2021 in Las Vegas.

The DX62R-3 mini-excavator allows operators to work in confined areas due to its reduced tail swing.

Aaron Kleingartner, product and dealer marketing manager, confirmed the Doosan DX62R-3 and DX85R-3 mini-excavators will be on display during the show.

“We offer a broad range of mini-excavators, which are popular machines in the rental market, particularly for customers in construction and landscaping industries.

“The trade show is a great opportunity to promote our brand and our equipment to an important audience.”

The Doosan DX62R-3 mini-excavator allows operators to work in confined areas due to its reduced tail swing, which Doosan says makes it suited for residential construction, landscaping and utility work.

“Operators can complete precise tasks with DX62R-3 excavator attachments using the selectable auxiliary flow rates and the detent (continuous flow) mode. Standard excavator attachments for this model include a bucket, thumb and quick coupler.”

The DX85R-3 mini-excavator is designed for good slew performance on slopes.

The Doosan DX85R-3 mini-excavator is designed for good slew performance on slopes. At the core of the machine is a smooth, refined hydraulic system for machine control. As the DX85R-3 moves, the auto-shift drive system automatically downshifts when the job demands more torque.

“Operators can easily monitor important diagnostic information for the DX85R-3, like fuel level, coolant temperature, day/time, throttle position and engine rpm, on the mini-excavator’s deluxe colour panel. It is easy to select auxiliary hydraulic flow modes and rates from the screen.”

The DX62R-3 has engine power of 44.3 kW (59.4 HP) and an operating weight of 6.25 tonne. Its bucket breakout force is 43.2 kN, while maximum dig depth (with standard arm) is 3815 mm.

Meanwhile, offering the same engine power, the DX85R-3 has an operating weight of 8.6 tonne with a bucket breakout force of 61.8 kN and maximum dig depth (with standard arm) of 7180 mm.

Approved attachments for both machines include angle tilt bucket, ditching bucket, heavy-duty bucket and quick coupler.

The Doosan exhibit space is No 633 in the South Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
