Doosan Wins Biggest Truck Order in Poland

Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment has won the company’s largest order for articulated dump trucks (ADTs) in Poland. The order for six MT31 ADTs forms part of a new fleet of Doosan machines delivered to Hydrobudowa s.a, a leading Polish contractor specialising in complex civil and hydro engineering, infrastructure and specialist construction projects.

Also comprising two Doosan DX300LC crawler excavators and two Doosan DX340LC crawler excavators, the machines have been supplied by Doosan dealer, Grausch i Grausch maszyny Budowlane Sp. z o. o.

Five of the new Doosan ADTs are currently working on the construction of the Bojanowo – Rawicz section of the new high-speed S5 Expressway, whilst the sixth machine is working on the construction of a new Sports Arena in Toruń.
 
Weighing in at 22.7 tonne, the MT31 ADT features a proven, powerful Scania DC9 engine providing a gross power output of 255 kW (347 HP) at 2200 rpm, a maximum 28 tonne payload, central lubrication, a rear view camera and permanent 6-wheel drive to ensure maximum stability and equal weight distribution.

Working with the ADTs on the new S5 Expressway, all the new excavators are powered by the Doosan DL08 Common Rail engine producing 147 kW (197 HP) of power for the DX300LC and 184 kW (247 HP) for the DX340LC, whilst weighing in at 28.74 and 33.96 tonne, respectively. Both excavators incorporate the EPOS electronic control system and feature a control panel with colour LCD display and output from a rear view camera.

The Doosan trucks are being used to transport loose materials from storage areas to the construction sites and the Doosan DX300LC and DX340LC excavators are carrying out loading work.  Bridge and piling works are already underway as are the works for the frame culverts and the utilities, with the reconstruction of telecommunications, sewage and water mains lines already started. Access routes to the main structures have also been completed.

“We decided to buy these machines not only because of their quality reputation and attractive price, but also the dealer’s assurance of a comprehensive manufacturer’s warranty and prompt delivery of spare parts. Grausch i Grausch put together a very attractive package with one joint service deal. The company provided us with a guarantee offering the highest standard of maintenance,” emphasised Artur Szyc, Director of Equipment and Transport at Hydrobudowa Polska.
