Doosan Infracore Construction EquipmentDoosan Infracore Construction Equipment has announced several important changes to the company’s network of dealers covering Scotland.

Lloyd Ltd, Scotia Plant Ltd and Balgownie Ltd, the existing dealers for the popular Doosan-branded range of excavators, wheel loaders and articulated dump trucks in Scotland, have all been awarded new Bobcat dealerships. All three companies are now offering sales and service for the Bobcat range of compact equipment in their respective areas.

Inverurie-based Balgownie Ltd has been appointed as the Bobcat dealer for Aberdeenshire, Morayshire, Angus (from 2012) and for much of the Highlands and parts of Perthshire and Kinross-shire.

The remainder of Perthshire and Kinross-shire is part of the area now handled by Scotia Plant Ltd, based in Coatbridge, which will now represent both Bobcat and Doosan products in the central belt of Scotland.  Scotia Plant will work alongside another Bobcat dealer, George Colliar Ltd, based at Kinross.

Lloyd Ltd has won the Bobcat dealership for the southern part of Scotland, covering East and South Ayrshire, the Border counties, South Lanarkshire and Dumfries and Galloway. Lloyd Ltd is also the new Bobcat dealer for Cumbria in England. In both areas, Lloyd Ltd is responsible for all Bobcat products except the telescopic handler range from Bobcat.

The range of Bobcat skid-steer loaders, including one all-wheel steer model, covers operating weights from 1268 to 4549 kg and rated operating capacities from 343 to 1758 kg. Complementing these compact wheeled loaders is a range of compact tracked loaders with rated operating capacities from 254 to 1584 kg and tipping loads from 732 to 4602 kg. The Bobcat compact loader range appeals to customers in many sectors from construction, demolition, landscaping, agriculture and equipment rental to recycling and general industry.

The line of Bobcat compact excavators comprises models ranging in operating weight from 1 to 8 tonne, with digging depths from 1.8 to 4.7 m.  They are designed for a wide variety of digging and trenching applications such as cable laying, foundations and footings for buildings and installation of drainage and sewerage systems.
