New Doosan DX250WMH-5 Material Handler


Doosan is launching the new DX250WMH-5 25 tonne Stage IV compliant material handler for use in the solid waste, recycling, demolition and forestry industries. Based on Doosan’s popular DX210W-5 21 tonne wheeled excavator, the new DX250WMH-5 material handler has been designed specifically for a wide range of material sorting and handling applicationssuch as those in the scrap metal and other solid waste and recycling industries, as well as logging.

Designed to carry out the toughest tasks, the DX250WMH-5 is built with front and rear stabilizers, and a boom and arm specifically designed for material handling tasks. A standard feature is the hydraulic cab riser, which gives the operator better all-around visibility of the attachment and work area. When combined with the rear view camera display in the cab, the operator has excellent visibility of the job site.

The DX250WMH-5 material handler is easy to operate with ergonomic joysticks and a steering wheel. The machine comes equipped with two-way auxiliary and rotate circuit hydraulics to improve efficiency. The operator can use buttons on the joysticks or an optional foot pedal to control auxiliary attachments.

The new DX250WMH-5 material handler is powered by the 6-cylinder, turbocharged Doosan DL06PA water-cooled diesel engine, providing an output (SAE J1995) of 129.4 kW (173.5 HP). The DL06PA engine offers convenience and lower costs by meeting Stage IV emission regulations without the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF), through the use of cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and selective catalyst reduction (SCR) after-treatment technologies.

A special Doosan-developed system, Smart Power Control (SPC), improves machine efficiency while maintaining productivity through variable speed control and pump torque control, automatically adjusting RPMs according to the load being handled.

Power Modes to Match the Application

The SPC can be used with all four work modes available on the Doosan DX250WMH-5 material handler. These power modes help the operator to manage the balance of fuel consumption and machine power to the working conditions. The four selectable power modes include:

• Power+ (P+) mode: delivers the fastest work group speeds and greater power for those high demanding material moving applications

• Power (P) mode: provides exceptional power and superior performance for tough heavy lifting, quick truck loading and fast travel speed

• Standard (S) power mode: enhances the machine’s fuel consumption while delivering high performance in everyday lifting and moving of materials

• Economy (E) mode: helps reduce fuel consumption for low-demand applications and slows down machine movement for conditions that require more precise movements.

In addition to the four power modes, the DX250WMH-5 includes a lifting work mode, which provides increased pump torque, low engine RPM and an automatic power boost.

An optional generator is available as a turnkey solution without requiring additional modification. For added durability, an optional V-guard protects the machine sides and components behind the doors.

In the cab, a standard 7-inch colour LCD display provides helpful maintenance history and machine monitoring information. It also displays a video feed from the standard rear-view camera and/or an optional side view camera, which are uniquely placed to give even better visibility. A split screen mode displays the rear view camera and vital machine information at the same time. The feed from the optional side view camera can be reviewed independently or in a split screen mode.


There are a number of factory installed options for the Doosan DX250WMH-5material handler, including the following:

•           Additional work lamps

•           Cab guarding

•           Frame guards

•           Fuel filter pump

•           Rotating beacon

•           Solid tyres

•           Air compressor

DoosanCONNECT Telematics

DoosanCONNECT telematics is standard on the Doosan DX250WMH-5 materialhandler, and comes with a three-year subscription. DoosanCONNECT telematics provides location information and a full range of machine operational information to owners, dealers and Doosan. Information is provided through a simple user interface, accessible online via a web-enabled computer or smartphone. The goal of telematics is to help owners monitor their Doosan equipment and manage maintenance to reduce operating costs.
