Ghost of Winter Past Prepares Sarris’ Future Snow Removal

EquipEast11After the record-breaking snow fall of last winter, it’s smart to be prepared for the worst this coming season. Plenty of contractors are getting a head start on the coming storms, like snow removal contractor, George Sarris, who is planning for the future winter:

“The Doosan DL200-3 and DL200TC-3 (tool carrier) are the perfect size for me,” Sarris says of the 12-metric-ton wheel loaders. “The quality of the machines is what impressed me. They do an excellent job of removing snow, and the cab is roomy and comfortable for the operators.”

Doosan loaders’ cabs are sealed and pressurized, as well as heated, helping keep operators cozy and focused on their work. Specifically, operators don’t even have to leave the cab of the DL200TC-3 wheel loader to make non-hydraulic attachment changes with the hydraulic quick coupler. In addition, the tool carrier’s parallel-lift linkage design provides visibility to the bucket when connecting or disconnecting attachments to a wheel loader

Taking initiative and preparing for the coming storms is one method of breaking that pending ice of winter. Be sure to contact Equipment East if you’re interested in a severe snow removal solution.


“Doosan Real Work Stories: Ralph DiGiorgio with Doosan Wheel Loaders and Crawler Excavators”

Ralph DiGiorgio’s site utility company, D&M Civil Inc., was looking to replace some heavy equipment. The bright orange of Doosan may have made the machines stand out visually, but it was performance that made them stand tall compared to competitors. Different manufacturers were compared and tested by the crew, but the operators chose Doosan.

There are key factors that swayed DiGiorgio to make the switch to Doosan’s loaders: power in the machine, visibility in the cab, and fuel efficiency.

“[W]hen Ralph DiGiorgio compared Doosan equipment to the competition, he knew the orange machines belonged on his job site. His operators agreed as soon as they got behind the wheel of their first Doosan crawler excavator and DL300 wheel loader. Offering greater power, improved cab visibility, and better fuel efficiency, Doosan equipment helps DiGiorgio and his crew get more done and for less money.”

Reliability with a machine and the dealer’s maintenance were bonus points for DiGiorgio, saving both time and money. Doosan makes the tough machines, and Equipment East keeps them up and running.
