As part of a successful Plantworx exhibition, Lynch have announced a new £2 million order with Doosan Construction Equipment Ltd. A major part of this order comprises of the new Doosan DX300LC-3, DX340LC-3 and DX380LC-3 Stage IIIB compliant large crawler excavators from 30 to 38 tonne, as well as smaller crawler and wheeled excavators including the new DX140LC-3 and DX160LC-3 Stage IIIB compliant crawler excavators recently launched by Doosan in the UK.
Merrill Lynch, Operations Director at Lynch, said: "Our company slogan is ‘Meeting Hire Demands’ and with this latest order from Doosan, we are focusing on meeting new requirements laid down by our customers for Stage IIIB machines.These are now being demanded for projects such as Crossrail as well as the legacy works after the 2012 Olympics, and it is this type of machine which will form the bulk of our investment (over £12 million) in the next 12 months to meet this need.
All the new machines are supplied to the exacting Lynch demolition and utility specification, offering safety features such as automatic dual-locking quick hitches, audible reverse alarms, reversing cameras and demolition cages as standard, at the same time as exceeding the high performance, fuel efficiency and reliability standards required by our customers."
Available for hire via the Lynch National Hire Number 0845 400 0000 from the Lynch London ‘super depot’ in North London, the Lynch Midlands depot at Rushden in Northamptonshire and from various satellite depots around the country, the latest order follows hard on the heels of over £4 million worth of Doosan crawler and wheeled excavators supplied by the Doosan over the last two years.
Every Lynch machine and attachment goes through an extensive pre-delivery inspection before it arrives on site, ensuring that when it starts to work it is in perfect condition. In order to extend the Lynch health and safety ethos onto every site, a range of extras are available, such as safe-load indicators and height restrictors. This means that all machines are to the very highest health and safety standards.
The same commitment to health and safety can be seen in the extra training that Lynch personnel undergo, covering environmental and site-specific inductions as well as that for sector-specific training cards (National Grid, Rail, Thames Water, etc.) This is supported by accreditations to the Building Confidence Scheme (Achilles), FORS (Transport for London), 14001 (Environmental ISO), Constructing Better Health and other important schemes.
