INCORPORATING both the Doosan and Bobcat brands, Doosan’s business continues to grow and both brands will be represented at this year’s ScotPlant, on a stand hosted by their Scottish dealers Lloyd Ltd and Balgownie Ltd.
Lloyd Ltd represents Doosan and Bobcat across the south of Scotland and north of England with construction sales specialists from its Dumfries, Carlisle and Newcastle dealerships, as well as from its construction plant business in Thornaby, attending ScotPlant while Balgownie Ltd are the main dealers for the north of Scotland from their branch in Inverurie.
Both businesses say they are looking forward to welcoming guests onto their stand and showcasing the latest range of Doosan and Bobcat machines.
THE NEW DOOSAN RANGE
Offering wheeled or crawler excavators and wheeled loaders, Doosan’s latest range provides a “versatile and economical choice” of robust and flexible machines to suit a variety of applications, from reduced-radius excavators for work in confined spaces to great all-rounders for residential to mid-sized jobs including pipe-laying and demolition, not to mention wheeled loaders with “powerful yet economical engines”.
Replacing the popular “-3” models, the new range of “-5” models are Tier 4-compliant and have been designed for long life with an extra sturdy frame and reinforced superstructure. Doosan say improved fuel consumption, refined cab design and extended servicing intervals all combine to provide a lower Total Cost of Ownership.
Doosan Telematics are also said to make maintaining the machines simple and manageable, providing real-time data to give true operational intelligence, which in turn can reduce operating costs. A three-year subscription to the Doosan Telematics service comes as standard on all new machines, providing information on things like fuel usage, operating hours and machine location.
THE BOBCAT RANGE
Founded in the USA over 50 years ago, Bobcat was acquired by Doosan in 2007, retaining the world-renowned Bobcat brand.
From skidsteer loaders to mini-excavators, Bobcat’s range is described as providing “superior power and performance that will help you do more, faster and better”.
With easy maintenance and servicing, a focus on operator comfort, and making their compact machines readily transportable, Bobcat say they have found the perfect combination for their customers.
The Doosan and Bobcat ranges are increasingly extensive, but many of their most popular models will be on display on the Lloyd Ltd and Balgownie stand.
