SUTTLE Projects has extended the company’s sheet piling capability with the purchase of a new Doosan DX140LC-3 14 tonne crawler excavator from Kellands (Plant Sales) Ltd.
Equipped with a Movax SG-30 side-grip piling hammer and filled with biodegradable oil, the machine has just completed a project on behalf of the Borough of Poole Council, providing maintenance and protection works on the sea defences bordering Baiter Park in Poole Harbour.
Joe Paine, Managing Director of Dorset-based Suttle Projects Ltd, said, “The new DX140LC-3 excavator complements the larger Doosan DX255LC-3 25 tonne machine we purchased at the end of 2013 and provides an extension to our sheet-piling capability for projects such as that in Poole, where a smaller machine is required.
“With the new 14 tonner in our fleet, we can carry out more of the intricate sheet piling jobs that are increasingly being required in and around small rivers and railway sites across the country. With over £1.5 million of contracts of this type a year over the last two years, our turnover in this area has grown significantly and we already have six jobs booked in for next summer.”
