Doosan has launched new factory-installed SVAB/Steelwrist options for the Doosan wheeled excavator range through Doosan Smart Solutions. Doosan is introducing the following factory-fitted options and attachments from SVAB/Steelwrist for the company’s DX140W-5, DX160W-5, DX165W-5 and DX170W-5 wheeled excavators:

The SVAB/Steelwrist installation on the four wheeled excavator models enhances field support for Doosan dealers and customers, providing a complete CE-marked excavator that fully meets the customer’s requirements, saving on the time and costs required for installation normally carried out at the dealer’s facilities, with the additional advantage of integrated machine control systems for 3D work.

Tiltrotators are an increasingly popular attachment for excavators. Although the tiltrotator was first invented in the late 1980s, the technical development pace is still extremely high today. The market penetration varies a lot between the most advanced markets where above 90% of excavators between 3 and 30 t have a tiltrotator, to start-up markets where only the true first movers looking for increased efficiency are active.

Experienced operators estimate the productivity improvement to be between 20 and 35%, depending on the type of job involved. Existing jobs can be done faster; new types of work can be undertaken with the tiltrotator in place and there is less need for support staff on the ground.
