German demolition contractor opts for another Doosan
Michel strengthens equipment fleet with ‘jack-of-all-trades’ DX255LC-5 excavator
RECYCLING operators M. Michel Bau of Garbsen, in Lower Saxony, Germany, have purchased their fourth Doosan DX255LC-5 excavator. The new addition joins the company’s strong Doosan fleet of earthmoving machinery and, once again, was supplied by local Doosan dealers Atlas Hannover Baumaschinen.
According to Michel, the DX255LC-5 is an ideal machinery solution to the company’s varied materials handling needs and the different types of demolition and earthmoving work it undertakes.
‘In both demolition and earthworks, the DX255LC-5 is very versatile,’ said company founder Marvin Michel. ‘Although it is quite compact, it still has exceptional performance in its class and is easy to transport.’
The DX255LC-5 excavator is powered by a well-proven six-cylinder, turbocharged Doosan DL06P water-cooled diesel engine that delivers an output of 141kW (192hp) at 1,900 rev/min. The machine also features Doosan’s Smart Power Control (SPC) system which is now standard on all LC-5 models. It monitors motor and pump performance and limits unnecessary power use depending on whether the impending workload is heavy or light.
Health and safety is of paramount importance for any plant manufacturer, and the Doosan excavators across Michel’s fleet carry all the necessary safety equipment required for demolition work. The multi-tasking DX255LC-5 can also accommodate many different attachments, from pulverizers and shears to hydraulic hammers and sorting grabs, to suit the job at hand.
