Develon Unleashes the DX1000LC-7 Crawler Excavator

The DX1000LC-7 is Develon's largest excavator to date. This monstrous 100-metric-ton machine can be deployed in quarries, demanding infrastructure projects and rugged jobsites.


DEVELON, formerly known as Doosan construction equipment, has expand its next-generation -7 Series crawler excavator offering in North America with the new DX1000LC-7.

The new 100-metric-ton conventional tail swing excavator is designed for pit and quarry customers working in aggregate settings. The large earthmoving and excavating machine can also take on heavy construction and infrastructure projects.

“The DX1000LC-7 is designed to serve a growing crawler excavator size class,” said Thomas Lee, director of product management at DEVELON. “It can efficiently load large amounts of material into trucks at quarries. On construction sites, the DX1000LC-7 excavates, stockpiles and loads material into dump trucks.”


The DX1000LC-7 excavator includes smart machine technology and a rugged design for uptime protection. Features of the new DX1000LC-7 include a crossed-design swing bearing that distributes stress for machine uptime protection. Attention was given to reinforcing the excavator’s wear points — boosting the machine’s reliability and keeping it running longer. The excavator also includes a heavy-duty front design with additional reinforcement on key stress points to ensure uptime protection.

“The new DX1000LC-7 excavator has the highest swing torque in its size class,” highlighted Lee. “This is especially important for aggregate producers when they routinely turn or rotate the excavator’s upper structure to move rocks and other material.”

Smart Power and Operating Modes

The excavator’s D-ECOPOWER system helps save fuel during use. The hydraulic system controls oil flow and optimizes the engine’s available horsepower.

Operators can choose between two modes: boom and swing. This allows operators to adjust the machine to best match the job at hand, giving priority to boom or swing movements. Boom priority is for harsh conditions, such as digging over the front or dumping over the side of the machine. Swing priority works best in normal or light-duty digging situations.

Cab and Controls

The machine is equipped with push-button start. The DX1000LC-7 cab contains an 8-in. touch screen LCD monitor for visibility and access. The screen is 30% larger than previous models.

Operators can configure the shortcut button on the joystick to their liking so they can adjust the wipers, mute the audio or control the camera. The button can also be used to activate the optional intelligent floating boom feature.

The optional 360-degree all-around view monitoring (AVM) camera system displays a full view of the machine’s surroundings. Five visual perspectives can be seen from the separate AVM monitor: top view, rear view, top+right view, rear+corner view and 3D view.

Additional DX1000LC-7 excavator options include a hydraulic removable counterweight, which is helpful if the customer needs to transport the machine. An optional auto-lube system makes daily maintenance simpler and enhances uptime protection.

Additional machine options include the following:

  • Two-way auxiliary hydraulic flow
  • Cab guarding
  • Additional work lamps
  • Rotating beacon
  • Straight travel
  • Telematics

The new excavator comes with unlimited access to the DEVELON Fleet Management telematics system. The system allows equipment owners and fleet managers to remotely monitor machine location, hours, fuel usage, engine idle versus work time and error codes, as well as engine and hydraulic temperatures. Machines can be monitored via an online account. In addition, dealers can use the system to provide customer support by responding to machine warning messages and alerts, troubleshooting machine issues, and then sending a field service vehicle to deliver the proper parts and help with repairs.
