Doosan loaders for Breedon quarries

Breedon has bought new Doosan DL550-5 and DL450-5 wheeled loaders for two of its Scottish quarries.

The new Stage IV compliant machines are going into service at Edzell Quarry near Brechin and Tom’s Forest Quarry in Kintore. 

The wheeled loaders, which meet EU Stage IV emissions regulations, were supplied by Balgownie, the Inverurie-based dealer for Doosan and Bobcat.

Bob Hare, regional production manager for Breedon Northern, said: “Both of these quarries are very busy operations, placing big demands on the equipment we purchase for material handling applications. Both of the new Doosan wheel loaders are used to load and stockpile the large quantities of materials produced by the quarries’ crushing & screening equipment.  They are also kept busy filling the material bins used to supply the ready-mixed concrete systems at the quarries.”
