Doosan excavators for Kings Heath Demolition

Kings Heath Demolition Ltd, a demolition company based in Redditch, Worcestershire, has purchased new Doosan mini- and crawler excavators from Stourport-on-Severn-based Murley Construction, the local Doosan dealer.

In the latest batch of new Doosan machines, Kings Heath Demolition has taken delivery of the company’s first three mini-excavators, comprising Doosan DX17Z, DX27Z and DX63-3 models. The order also includes three of the larger 22.1-tonne Doosan DX225LC-5 crawler excavators, adding to Kings Heath Demolition’s existing DX140LC-5 and DX225LC-5 units.

Tony Nicholls, Senior Contracts Manager at Kings Heath Demolition said, “With the new Doosan DX17Z, DX27Z and DX63-3, we are adding mini-excavators to our fleet for the first time. These machines meet the increasing demand in the market for indoor demolition and refurbishment work, involving work in confined spaces and basements. We are beginning to see an uptick in this type of project, including the conversion of existing multi-storey office buildings into new apartments in urban locations and the new Doosan mini-excavators are perfect for this type of work.”

The first new Doosan crawler excavator purchased by Kings Heath Demolition was a 14.4-tonne DX140LC-5 model. This machine and the DX225LC-5 models subsequently added have so impressed the company’s drivers, that Kings Heath Demolition switched brands and has only purchased Doosan in the last three to four years.
