Power comes from a six-cylinder Doosan DL08 diesel delivering 202kW, while the sophisticated e-EPOS electronic control system optimises power and reduces fuel consumption. The machine is offered with a choice of three booms and has a maximum digging depth of 8.2m and dump height of 7.75m. As with all other heavy Doosan excavators, the DX380LC has as standard an auto idle feature which reduces fuel consumption and noise. Another important feature is the optional economy mode that will minimise fuel consumption.
Other features include a spacious operator cab with an 180mm colour LCD monitor, low noise levels, proven parts from the larger DX420LC and engine service intervals at 500 hours.
