ETM Recycling invest in Doosan machines

Doosan DL250-3 wheel loader and DX140LC-3 excavator

New DL250-3 wheel loader and DX140LC-3 excavator for Bristol-based recycling firm

ETM Recycling, based in Bristol, have purchased a new Stage IIIB-compliant Doosan DL250-3 wheel loader and a Doosan DX140LC-3 crawler excavator, both supplied by Kellands (Plant Sales) Ltd, the authorized dealer for the Doosan and Bobcat ranges for the whole of south-west England.

The new Doosan machines are part of more than £750,000 worth of new investment in ETM’s state-of-the-art crushing and screening facility at Durnford Quarry, in Bristol, allowing it possible to convert up to 250 tonnes/h of inert waste into a wide range of high-grade recycled aggregates and topsoil.


Formed only three years ago, ETM Recycling is a family-run business that has expanded rapidly and now offers a full waste management, waste collection, recycling, and skip and dumpy bag hire service. Diverting received waste from landfill is a central tenet of ETM’s business, with ongoing investment ensuring in excess of 91% of received inert waste is now recycled.

Amy McCormack, business and marketing manager at ETM, said: ‘We are very pleased with the high performance and reliability of the new Doosan equipment together with lower running costs, all of which contributes to an increase in efficiency throughout our business, allowing us to offer an enhanced service for companies and local authorities throughout the area.’   

Powered by the Doosan DL06K 6-cylinder EGR diesel engine, which delivers 128kW at 2,100 rev/min, the new-generation DL250-3 wheel loader combines high engine power with a number of new features to minimize fuel consumption and provide better operator comfort, exceptional performance, ease of handling, easier serviceability and extended durability. The machine has a bucket capacity of 2.5 cubic metres, a static tipping load (straight) of 11,000kg and dump height (at 45°) with bolt-on teeth of 2,750mm.

The new 14-tonne DX140LC-3 crawler excavator is also powered by the Doosan DL06K engine, providing 15% more power (82 kW at 1,850 rev/min) than the previous Stage IIIA model. Improved cooling efficiency, including the installation of a new fan clutch with electrically controlled fan speed, contributes to the overall reduction in fuel consumption.
