Wring Group hit new heights with Doosan DX700LC

Doosan DX700LC excavator

New super high-reach excavator completes first project for demolition contractor 

BRISTOL-based Wring Group’s new high-reach Doosan DX700LC crawler excavator has completed its first job for the company, demolishing buildings on the campus of the former Swindon College in Swindon.

Working on behalf of the developer, Wring Group have taken down a nine-storey building at the centre of the former campus in stages using the DX700LC excavator, which is the largest of four high-reach excavators in the company’s fleet.  This type of demolition method was chosen ahead of other techniques such as the use of explosives because the site is in the middle of a residential area.  


The Doosan excavator can be converted into a super high-reach machine by Ipswich-based Kocurek using a refurbished 37m long arm, which can be interchanged with a standard arm for non-high reach applications. Wring Group, one of the leading demolition companies in the UK, purchased the new DX700LC excavator from local authorized Doosan dealers Kellands (Plant Sales) Ltd of Bridgewater, in Somerset.   

According to Dean Wring, director of Wring Group, one of the main reasons for purchasing the DX700LC unit was the excellent service the company receives from Kellands and the high-performance of the new Doosan DX380LC and DX225LC excavators that it has acquired. 

Mr Wring said: ‘Our continued investment in specialist equipment means we own one of the UK’s biggest, most advanced demolition fleets with a complement of more than 55 excavators and standard and high-reach demolition rigs from 0.75 to 90 tonnes and up to 37m reach, allowing us to undertake all types of demolition and dismantling contracts.’
