A-Plant places order for 300 Doosan compressors

1 Aug 14 A-Plant has placed an order worth over £3m for new portable compressors from Doosan Portable Power.

The new A-Plant order comprises over 300 Doosan machines, including 7/20, 7/26E, 7/41, 7/72, 7/125-10/110 and 7/170 models. This is the first order in the UK for the new 7/125-10/110 ‘Dual Mode’ portable compressor.

The new Doosan compressors have been delivered to A-Plant service centres throughout the UK and join new Bobcat and Montabert products from Doosan Construction Equipment that also form part of the latest A-Plant fleet investment.

Andrew Winlow, director of purchasing and fleet management at A-Plant, said: “The Doosan range of portable compressors is acknowledged as the market leader worldwide and we are pleased to offer our rental customers these best-in-class products.  We also chose Doosan because of the outstanding local aftermarket support the company provides for the portable power range throughout the UK.”

Providing free air deliveries from 2m3/min to 17m3/min, the 7/20, 7/26, 7/41, 7/72, 7/125 and 7/170 portable compressors all operate at a working pressure of 7 bar and are aimed at standard pressure applications such as powering breakers and tools in road repair, demolition and refurbishment.

The 7/125-10/110 model has the new ‘Dual Mode’ feature as standard, with a choice of two pressure and flow ratings on the same machine.  By pushing a button on the keypad, the operator can switch between ‘lo’ (low pressure mode: rated pressure 6.9 bar/free air delivery 12m³/min) and ‘hi’ (high pressure mode: rated pressure 10.3 bar/free air delivery 10.6m³/min).  This provides a ‘two-for-one’ solution covering a range of applications, from standard pressure uses found in construction and utility markets to more specialist high pressure applications such as abrasive blasting, spray painting and optical fibre blowing.
