Develon has unveiled its DX20ZE-7 mini excavator, the first mass-produced electric excavator manufactured by what was formerly known as Doosan Construction Equipment.

The two-tonne (1941 kg) machine offers low noise and zero emissions with the features and performance of the DX-7 Series of mini excavators.

The DX20ZE-7 uses a 20.4 kWh li-ion battery pack to power a 13.7 kW (18.4 hp) motor. Develon stated that an 80% charge can be completed in about 80 minutes. All electrical systems have been optimised for working in harsh conditions.

Maximum digging depth is 2350 mm, while max. digging reach (ground) is 3875 mm. Maximum load height is 2625 mm.

Key features include retractable tracks, which allow the machine to pass through narrow gaps, making it ideal for working in confined spaces. Compact overall dimensions make the DX20ZE-7 suitable for working in confined areas where low-noise, night time work is required.

Other features include a suite of onboard telematics systems. These allow operators and dealers to remotely monitor machine performance, location and productivity.

The systems support machine tracking, helping to avoid unauthorised use, while also tracking oil pressure, operating temperature and other machine information. The system sends alerts when maintenance is due.

The data can also be used to help train operators achieve maximum productivity.
