The delivery forms part of a £12m purchase plan this year. Heavyweight additions include Doosan DX300LC 30 tonne and DX380LC 38 tonne large crawler excavators among an order of Doosan wheeled and crawler excavator ranging from 3-38 tonne.
The wheeled excavator range includes standard configuration DX140W, DX160W, DX190W and DX210W excavators.
Lynch has also purchased the articulated boom version of the DX190W wheeled excavator more commonly seen on the continent.
The new machines on now on hire from Lynch’s ‘super depot’ in North London, the Lynch Midlands depot at Rushden in Northamptonshire and from various satellite depots around the country.
Merrill Lynch, operations director at Lynch, said: “The Doosan articulated boom DX190W wheeled excavator is a good example, where we purchased a machine to meet a special requirement from one of our rail customers.
“We have also had Doosan DX140LC 14 tonne excavators specially modified with diesel particulate filters to meet strict environmental restrictions for work in shafts and underground.”
