The Doosan DX140LCR crawler excavator is said to deliver exceptional performance for an excavator in the 12-14 tonne range.
Distributed by AB Equipment, this particular Doosan model has become very popular among contractors for cost effectiveness and comfort.
One of those to sing its praises is the owner of West Auckland based Central Siteworks, Dion Lane. Dion has never been a fan of zero tail swing up until now, however the balance on the DX140LCR has impressed him so much that he is now a convert.
“AB Equipment gave us one to trial but it never went back,” says Dion. “The lifting power is absolutely tremendous for this size of excavator which is perfect for the type of drainage and all-purpose residential subdivision work we do. I love it, and with the tilt hitch as part of the package it is definitely our ‘go to’ machine. Our operators are falling over themselves to use it so I wouldn’t hesitate to buy more in the future.”
Another who can’t fault them is Linden Bawden from Hibiscus Contractors. “We just happened to be in the market when James Maunsell from AB Equipment approached us so we arranged a test run,” says Linden.
“Having been longstanding owners of a competitive brand the Doosan totally met our expectations and with a more than competitive price package we ended up buying two models, one of which was a DX140LCR.”
