Published:  17 July, 2017

Waste and recycling company McCarthy Marland has bought two new Doosan excavators and a wheel loader for the company’s materials recycling facility (MRF) in Bristol.

The new excavators are X140LCR-5 Stage IV 15-tonne reduced tail swing crawler models and the wheel loader is Doosan DL250-5 Stage IV vehicle.

Kevin McDonagh, operations manager at McCarthy Marland, said: ‘We have been purchasing Doosan machines for over 10 years now and they have always performed well in our busy sorting and loading operations in Bristol and the new Doosan equipment has impressed our operators.’

The equipment was purchased from local authorised Doosan and Bobcat dealer, Kellands (Plant Sales) Ltd of Bridgwater in Somerset.   

‘As part of the latest deal, Mark Payne, sales director at Kellands, was able to arrange a very good package including a three year warranty and a three year service contract, giving us complete peace of mind,’ said Kevin McDonagh. 

‘Using his knowledge of the industry, Mark has also ensured the machines have been set up with the correct specifications for our applications.’
