Lyndon Thomas takes biggest UK order for Doosan trucks

25 October, 2016

Lyndon Thomas Ltd., based in Northampton in the UK, has taken delivery of eight new Doosan DA30-5 articulated dump trucks (ADTs), the biggest single order for Doosan trucks in the UK, for use in projects across the country.


Established in 2010, Lyndon Thomas offers a range of services including earthmoving, contract crushing and screening, plant hire, demolition and distribution of all types of aggregate. The new Doosan Stage IV trucks were purchased along with a new Doosan 30 tonne DX300LC-5 Stage IV crawler excavator from Murley Construction, the Doosan dealer for the West Midlands, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Shropshire, Herefordshire, Staffordshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Cambridgeshire.

The new order for Doosan ADTs reportedly confirms Lyndon Thomas as the owner of the largest fleet of dump trucks in the East Midlands area. The order was placed based on the proven performance of a Doosan DA30 ADT demonstration machine on a range of works including the preparation of a new landfill cell in very difficult conditions.

 ‘Best in class’ traction

Like all Doosan ADTs, the DA30-5 features an articulation hinge positioned behind the turning ring to provide equal weight distribution to the front axle even during maximum steer articulation. This together with a free-swinging rear tandem bogie ensures equal distribution of weight to each wheel and guarantees permanent 6-wheel contact and drive for equal power distribution and excellent performance on difficult terrain. Collectively, the forward turning point, the tandem bogie and the sloping rear frame results in ‘best in class’ rough and soft terrain capabilities and avoids the need for electronic aids such as traction control.

Like all of Doosan’s new Stage IV/Tier 4 Final machines, the designs of the DA30-5 ADT and DX300LC-5 go beyond just meeting the latest emission standards and incorporate many additional features and product improvements to establish a new benchmark in performance, fuel efficiency, enhanced controllability and high operator comfort, together with improved reliability, durability and reduced maintenance and servicing costs.

 Greater power and torque

The new DX300LC-5 is also powered by the Scania DC9 5-cylinder diesel engine, with an output of 202 kW of power at 1800 rpm, providing a huge 27% increase in engine power and a massive 30% boost in torque over the previous LC-3 model. As well as the Scania engine, new innovative and exclusive features have been introduced, leading to huge reductions in fuel consumption compared to the Stage IIIB machine.
