Develon to showcase machine hat-trick at concrete event

DEVELON has announced plans to showcase three excavators at World of Concrete in Las Vegas in January.

The DX42-7 mini-excavator, DX225LC-7X crawler excavator and DX140W-7 wheeled excavator will all be on display at the three-day event at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“Develon is excited to exhibit at World of Concrete, especially as the event celebrates 50 years in 2024,” said Jacob Sherman, product and dealer marketing manager. “This trade show gives us a chance to promote our new brand and innovative products that help customers take on their biggest job site challenges.”

The conventional tail swing DX42-7 mini-excavator is described as ‘ideally suited’ for navigating tight, congested job sites and urban areas. Part of the next-generation DX-7 Series, features include fast cycle times, torque-limiting piston pumps that respond to load demands, and a larger counterweight for improved balance and durability. The machine comes with a standard thumb-ready arm.

Two cab options are available: open canopy and enclosed cab configuration. Enclosed cab models come with standard heating and air conditioning and hands-free Bluetooth audio. Visibility is boosted by a framed full-glass door, optional rear view camera, and LED lamps.

The DX225LC-7X is the first electronically controlled crawler excavator from Develon. The system enables advanced machine guidance and machine control systems including 2D grading for earthmoving and grading work. An optional dozer blade and the standard counterweight design are said to provide strength and stability.

Operators can also activate the tiltrotator mode. Added comfort features include improved heating and cooling with an optional heated/cooled seat, joystick controls, a rear view camera, Smart Touch screen and optional 360-degree around view monitor (AVM) camera system.

Finally, the DX140W-7 wheeled excavator is designed to deliver powerful digging and manoeuvrability when working on bridges and roadways or in urban areas. It can be configured with a front dozer blade and independent rear outriggers or four independent outriggers. Features include automotive-style heating and air conditioning and improved floorspace. A rear view camera is standard and an optional heated/cooled seat is available.
