Doosan Excavator on Mt. Washington

1Doosan is on top of the world! Mt. Washington – the highest peak in the northeast, at 6,288 ft. – graced Doosan’s DX140LCR the opportunity to climb the mountain… in a manner of speaking.

With the need of expansion, a fourth railway switch was in order, and so was a machine tough enough to handle the rocky terrain. Hauled by the Cog Railway itself, the construction equipment was limited to 30,000 lbs. With such specifications, Equipment East was happy to lend some advice. Gareth Slattery, operations manager of Cog Railway, was just as pleased with the results:

“Over the years I have found that my best bet is to make the first phone call to Jim Mullen at Equipment East in Dracut, Massachusetts. We have used Jim for a long time. He understands the demands of our business and when we purchase or rent equipment from him and Equipment East we know that we will get the service we are looking for.”

2Doosan’s DX140LCR was the right machine for the job. A Geith coupler and bucket were also necessary in this mountainous work, but getting the excavator hoisted up the mountainside by Cog Railway was momentous.

We at Equipment East are proud to have played a small part in this historic development of the Cog Railway. (Read all about the Cog Railway expansion in Construction Equipment Guide’s July 2015 print)

What’s Past?
Equipment East Displays at VMHA 2015
3After such a successful trip in 2013 and 2014, Equipment East returned to the 2015 Annual Vermont Municipal Highway Association Equipment Show this spring. Entering with Doosan’s DL250-5 loader, we made quite the impression. As the largest heavy equipment show in the state of Vermont, dozens of municipalities attended, many of which showed interest in the Doosan loader.

The all-day event is always a well-attended show. With a snow plow rodeo and a backhoe skills competition, it almost feels like a carnival. Along with so many other machines on display, we were happy our own loader made such a fine impression amongst the crowd.

4Last year, Equipment East showcased the Doosan DX140W wheeled excavator, which drew lots of interest, leading to several demos. This year, multiple cities and towns expressed interest in our DL250-5 loader, and have requested seeing it in action. Spectators commented, “Most Cabin Space,” and “Best factory warranty,” on the loader.

Equipment East will be performing demonstrations of the loader’s complete abilities during the month of July for those cities and towns interested in Doosan’s DL250-5.
