Camden Environmental choose Doosan

Camden Environmental of Chingford in London have added a pair of Doosan machines to their fleet, including the first DX380LC tracked excavator to be delivered to a UK customer.

For over 20 years Camden have specialized in providing an environmentally and financially efficient service to recycle construction and demolition waste from the surrounding area.

To achieve this goal and handle around half a million tonnes of material each year, the company currently operates three crushers, three excavators and a pair of wheel loaders and when the decision was taken to acquire a new excavator and shovel, they had no hesitation in choosing Doosan machines.

The new machines, a DX380LC excavator and DL500 wheel loader have been supplied by Promac Solutions who have recently had their Doosan sales territory extended to include east and south London as well as Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent and East Sussex.

The DX380LC, which will use its 2m rock bucket for crusher loading duties, is powered by a six-cylinder Doosan DL08 turbocharged diesel engine developing 202kW (275 hp) at 1,900 rev/min, while its e-EPOS electronic system provides optimum power at reduced fuel consumption at all times. Economy is further improved by Doosan's 'auto idle' system, activated by the operator, which causes the engine to drop to idle if the excavator functions are not used for a period of about four seconds.

Weighing in at 37.9 tonnes the machine offers a maximum digging depth and reach of 8,200mm and 11,930mm, respectively, when equipped with the longest 3,950mm arm.

The DL500 will be working around the 25-acre site for a variety of stockpiling and loading tasks when its 6 cu m capacity bucket is able to fill lorries in just two passes for maximum fuel economy.
