Lynch had previously invested in one other piece of Caterpillar equipment, a TH580B telehandler and opted for the dozers because of the hardwearing undercarriages.
Undercarriage systems on tracked loaders and tractor can account for up to half of the machines repair and maintenance costs.
Cat’s SystemOne™ undercarriage system is claimed to increase wear life by 50%.
Merrill Lynch, Director of L. Lynch Plant Hire, said: “Having had problems with the undercarriages of our dozers in the past, we were wary about this particular issue.
“When Finning explained the difference between the competitors, and their longer life SystemOne™ undercarriage, we recognised the potential savings that could be made by investing in the Cat D6N LGP units.”
L. Lynch has also subscribed to Finning’s full Preventative Maintenance package, to add to the benefits of reduced operating costs through owning the two new Cat D6N LGP dozers.
