The DX65W-7 wheel mini excavator features standard telematics, powerful digging and lifting, attachment versatility, enhanced operator comfort and durability. The machine is powered by a DEVELON DM02 diesel engine.
DEVELON, formerly known as Doosan construction equipment, is displaying its first wheel mini excavator at ConExpo-Con/AGG 2023. The new DX65W-7 is the company's first compact wheel model for use in North America.
Building on the popularity of its mini excavators and larger wheel excavators, DEVELON will offer the DX65W-7 wheel mini excavator for excavating, grading and backfilling tasks. The company currently offers three large wheel excavator models for use in construction applications.
"The new DX65W-7 compact wheel excavator fulfills a need for our customers who want a mini excavator with rubber tires," said Thomas Lee, director of product management at DEVELON.
"Municipalities and customers who regularly use compact equipment on established surfaces asked us for a wheeled mini excavator. We believe the new DX65W-7 will be a good fit for their needs."
Building on the success of the company's -7 Series mini excavators, the DX65W-7 wheel mini excavator features standard telematics, powerful digging and lifting, attachment versatility, enhanced operator comfort and durability. The machine is powered by a DEVELON DM02 diesel engine.
A backfill blade comes standard with the DX65W-7 wheel excavator and can be used to level, backfill, grade and push material with ease. A blade float feature allows the excavator's backfill blade to follow the contours of the ground for grading, leveling and backfilling.
"One of the biggest benefits of the DX65W-7 is the ability to move the machine across concrete and asphalt without disrupting the surface," said Lee. "Customers who previously operated larger tractor loader backhoes will find the smaller, more nimble DX65W-7 a valuable addition to their fleets."
Inside the cab of the DX65W-7 excavator, operators will have access to a full color, 8-in. DEVELON Smart Touch display screen. Operators can easily read machine data and control options on the LCD screen's high-resolution display. A rearview camera and all-around view monitoring (AVM) camera system are available as options for additional views of the machine's surroundings.
DEVELON mini excavators come standard with enclosed cabs. A best-in-class air conditioning system also is standard on all enclosed-cab, -7 Series mini excavator models. For cold weather applications, operators can turn on the machine's standard heating system and keep working in comfort. For both heating and cooling, multiple vents are located throughout the cab for operator comfort. An automatic temperature control senses and adjusts to the temperature setting.
DX65W-7 customers can select between a single or double tire configuration. Lee said a double tire configuration can provide additional stability and lift capacity for the operator. Double tires have proven to provide fuel economy similar to single tires installed on a mini excavator.
Approved attachments for the DX65W-7 wheel mini excavator include buckets, thumbs and a quick coupler. Available as an optional accessory, a tiltrotator can be installed on the machine for enhanced attachment versatility and operator productivity.
