Smiths (Gloucester) Ltd, based at Stonehouse in Gloucestershire, has added 10 new Doosan mini excavators to its plant hire fleet.

Smiths has bought five DX27Z and five DX62R-3 models from its local Doosan dealer, Kellands (Plant Sales) of Bridgwater, Somerset.

Gerry Fehily, divisional plant manager at Smiths, said: “We have run Doosan mini-excavators in the past and know they are cracking machines that are ideal for the hire business. We have been using 5.5-tonne machines recently, but we have returned to the 6-tonne DX62R-3 excavator as it provides better power and strength for heavier tasks such as lifting pallets of materials and kerb stones around sites.”
