UK contractor A-plant has ordered close to 500 compressors from Doosan Portable Power, spending more than $6m on the purchase across half a dozen different Doosan models.

A-Plant has ordered more than 60 of the 7/73-10/53 dual-mode portable compressors – in the first order of such units in the UK – as well as a further 24 of the larger 7/125-10/110 dual-mode models.

The ‘dual mode’ feature on the 7/73-10/53 and 7/125-10/110 compressors offers a choice of dual pressure and flow outputs on both machines that can be selected by pushing a button on the keypad.

Other models include the 7/20 and 7/26EG single tool and 7/41 and 7/41G two tool compressors.

Andrew Winlow, purchasing manager at A-Plant, said: “We bought 7/125-10/110 compressors last year and have been impressed with the flexibility they offer. In the new order we have added more of these together with over 60 7/73-10/53 models to provide even more flexibility in the fleet.”

Steve Hallam, UK sales manager for Doosan Portable Power, added: “This is one of the largest orders ever won by Doosan Portable Power and is the result of collaboration over many years with A-Plant.

“The new 7/73-10/53 and 7/125-10/110 compressors are the fruits of our ongoing investment in the research and development of the Doosan range of portable power products aimed at applications in plant and tool rental, construction and utilities.”
