A-Plant order more than 300 Doosan compressors

Doosan 7/125-10/110 compressor

Doosan Portable Power receive order worth more than £3 million from leading UK plant hirer

A-PLANT, the plant, tools and equipment hire company, have placed a major order worth well in excess of £3 million for new portable compressors from Doosan Portable Power.

The order comprises more than 300 Doosan machines, including 7/20, 7/26E, 7/41, 7/72, 7/125-10/110 and 7/170 models, and is the first in the UK for the new 7/125-10/110 ‘Dual Mode’ portable compressor.


The compressors have been delivered to A-Plant service centres throughout the UK and join new Bobcat and Montabert products from Doosan Construction Equipment that also form part of A-Plant’s latest fleet investment.

Andrew Winlow, director of purchasing and fleet management with A-Plant, said: ‘The Doosan range of portable compressors is acknowledged as the market leader worldwide and we are pleased to offer our rental customers these best-in-class products. We also chose Doosan because of the outstanding local aftermarket support the company provides for the portable power range throughout the UK.’

Steve Hallam, UK sales manager for Doosan Portable Power, commented: ‘We are delighted with this very important order from A-Plant, which is a great testament to the high performance and durability that the Doosan range of portable power products offers for applications in plant and tool rental, construction and utilities.’

Providing free air deliveries from 2.0 to 17.0 cubic metres per minute (65 to 600 cubic feet per minute), the 7/20, 7/26, 7/41, 7/72, 7/125 and 7/170 portable compressors all operate at a working pressure of 7 bar and are aimed at standard-pressure applications.

The 7/125-10/110 model, however, has a new ‘Dual Mode’ feature as standard, with a choice of two pressure and flow ratings on the same machine. By pushing a button on the keypad, the operator can switch between ‘LO’ (low-pressure mode: rated pressure 6.9 bar / free air delivery 12.0 cubic metres per minute) and ‘HI’ (high-pressure mode: rated pressure 10.3 bar / free air delivery 10.6 cubic metres per min).
