When it comes to wheel loaders there’s nothing better for increasing production and improving profits than the latest Doosan DL Series range.
DESIGNED TO SCOOP, carry, and load material, Doosan Wheel Loaders can handle a wide range of material handling tasks.
This includes loading and transporting granular material such as sand and gravel for construction and municipal operations, as well as industrial, mining and quarrying applications.
Recently delivered to Southland quarry operator J Crooks & Sons, by distributor AB Equipment, was a Doosan DL300 Wheel Loader.
This was purchased on the back of some outstanding performances attributed to an existing Doosan DL400 Wheel Loader with over 8000 hours of operation to its name.
J Crooks & Sons is a privately owned hard rock quarrying company that has been in the family for over 70 years. Currently in the capable hands of Mort and David Crooks, the business is located on 100 acres of land on the outskirts of Invercargill. Their core business is the supply of finely ground dunite to the fertiliser industry. Mobile crushing plants also allow them to take on contract jobs for the roading industry.
Mort Crooks is quite pragmatic when it comes to purchasing new equipment and is adamant that the Doosan DL Series Loaders provide great value for money. “When you look at it, this equipment, it’s powered by a Cummins motor, has ZF transmission and has excellent componentry. In my opinion it’s a superior piece of equipment but without the big price tag,” he says.
And he’s not the only one that thinks that way.
The feedback from the operators is that they are very impressed with how smooth the Doosan DL Loaders are to operate.
No doubt the operators also enjoy the outstanding comfort features, with Doosan’s world-renowned cab that makes it easier to focus on the work at hand. The operator is surrounded by more space, better visibility, automatic air conditioning, adjustable steering column and ergonomically placed controls. As well, the air suspension seat has multiple settings to match all sizes and preferences.
Mort Crooks is also aware of the power and strength the Doosan Loaders provide when loading trucks at his quarry. With its powerful breakout force and quick response time the Doosan Wheel Loader is designed for the tough jobs. For a big performer, the Doosan DL Series Loaders are agile and smooth and provide a superior lift height and lift capacity and enough traction to penetrate hard materials no matter the task.
Few machines match the easy maintenance of Doosan Wheel Loaders. Regular maintenance is short and simple, while long service intervals increase the availability of the fleet. Two tool carrier options provide added versatility with seamless attachment capabilities along with bucket capacities that range from 1.9 to five square metres.
Overall the Doosan DL Series Wheel Loader is ideal for highway projects, quarries and other job sites and where you need to move material reliably and efficiently. No matter the task, you can be assured the Doosan DL300 Wheel Loader Series is up for the challenge.
