McCusker Demolition buys first Bobcats

McCusker Demolition Ltd, based in Belfast in Northern Ireland, has purchased the company’s first Bobcat machines from Northern Excavators, the local Authorised Bobcat Dealer. McCusker has added a new top-of-the-range Bobcat T40.180SLP 18m telehandler and a Bobcat E62 6-tonne mini-excavator.

Working on projects in urban and city centre areas and in sectors that range from domestic, industrial and commercial, to healthcare and education, the new Bobcats have impressed McCusker in their first few months of service. The T40.180SLP was chosen primarily for its 18m maximum lifting height and was specified with a basket attachment. The machine is currently working on a project to convert the vacant Brookfield Mill, a four-storey, former linen factory built in 1850 on the Crumlin Road in Belfast, for residential use. Working on behalf of the client, Kerr Property Holdings Ltd, McCusker Demolition is carrying out demolition works for the scheme, which will provide 77 social housing units for the Clanmil Housing Group.

The E62 mini-excavator, meanwhile, was put to work at St Mary’s Church in the heart of the Ballybeen Estate in Dundonald on the edge of East Belfast. The E62 boasts a maximum hydraulic flow rate of 132l/min. This is complemented by high digging forces, a maximum reach at ground level of 6.1m, a maximum dump height of 4.05m and a maximum digging depth of 3.82m. The E62 has a travel speed of 2.7km/h in the low range and 4.4km/h in the high range. Bobcat has just launched the new R2-Series E60 model, which is the replacement for the E62.
