DCV Engineering purchases Doosan Wheel Loader for rental fleet

DCV Engineering Ltd is a plant hire business based in Wellingborough in Northamptonshire, UK. The company has purchased the first Doosan wheel loader for its extensive rental fleet - the new DL300-5 wheel loader has been added along with a number of new Doosan crawler excavators, including DX140LC-5 and DX140LCR-5 14 t and DX225LC-5 25 t models. The new Doosan DL300-5 wheel loader is currently on hire to a local recycling and recovery business in Wellingborough.

David Venn, Joint Managing Director of DCV Engineering, commentsed, “We began purchasing Doosan equipment in 2014. Our first Doosan machine was a DX225LC-3 crawler excavator. With the excellent quality, reliability, performance and residual prices offered by Doosan equipment, it is not surprising that we have continued to purchase Doosan excavators and now Doosan wheel loaders.”

Part of a fleet comprising over 500 pieces of equipment for hire, the range of excavators available from DCV Engineering covers all sizes from 1-30 t and, in addition to the larger crawler excavators from Doosan, also includes a new 1 t DX10z mini-excavator.

DCV Engineering is centrally based with close connections via major roads such as the M1, M6, A45 and A14. As well as self-drive and operated plant hire, the company has branched into road sweeping and access equipment and has a large telehandler fleet. The company also has specialised knowledge and experience of the recycling industry, with a wide variety of mobile waste recycling equipment for hire, including crushers, trommel screens and deck screens.

David Venn added, “We started as a one man and van operation. Today the company has four service engineers and three full time delivery drivers. Other members of our staff are also fully trained with HGV licences so they can help out with deliveries if necessary. We are a family company and this is indicative of the extensive training we want to provide for our staff - DCV Engineering believes very strongly in investing in our people.”

Venn continued, “The residuals are part of the excellent low cost of ownership offered by the Doosan range of construction equipment. The excellent service/parts support Doosan provides is also crucial and parts are correctly priced. We expect the same and better support from our suppliers than that we provide for our customers.”

With a bucket capacity of 3.0 m3, the new Doosan DL300-5 wheel loader at DCV Engineering is intended to meet a wide range of material-handling needs from loading and transporting granular material (such as sand and gravel) to industrial, mining and quarrying applications. The DL300-5 wheel loader is powered by the Doosan DL08 6-cylinder diesel engine, with an output of 202 kW (271 HP) of power at 1800 rpm.

The increased space, better visibility and storage space in the cab allows operators to work for longer without fatigue or discomfort. Meeting ROPS/FOPS regulations, the cab also offers a wide emergency exit (located on the right-hand side) to provide fast and easy evacuation in critical situations.

The 5.7 inch full colour LCD panel in the cab is suitable for day and night work. The user-friendly monitor has two customisable screen displays to suit the operator’s preference, giving a full readout of machine settings and maintenance data. The rear-view camera enhances visibility and safety. The screen in the cab shows the operator what the camera sees and includes several lines to help judge distances; it also has other functions, including light intensity control, viewing angle control, language setting and power on/off setting.
