In Norway, Hæhre & Isachsen Maskinutleie AS, one of the largest machine rental companies in the country, has purchased 20 new Doosan DA40 Stage IV/Tier 4 Final compliant articulated dump trucks from Rosendal Maskin AS, the Doosan dealer for Norway, based in Askim.

The Doosan brand was chosen after a very competitive analysis of ADT suppliers conducted by Hæhre & Isachsen Maskinutleie AS, which is part of BetonmastHæhre Anlegg AS, one of Norway’s largest road and civil engineering contractors. Hæhre is an established user of Doosan/Moxy ADTs, but has always had other brands as well; the group has grown very rapidly in recent years and now has a fleet of dump trucks numbering over 100 units.

It is the largest ever Doosan ADT order in Scandinavia – the new DA40s replace existing DA40 models in the Hæhre fleet and several more ADTs from other manufacturers. The Doosan DA40s form part of a very competitive package, which includes a comprehensive service agreement between Rosendal and the Hæhre Group, encompassing 24/7 service with very quick response times.

Hæhre has been very satisfied with the performance, reliability and operator comfort of the DA40 which, when combined with the excellent warranty conditions for the new machines, ensured that Doosan and Rosendal were offering a very attractive package deal.

“This is the largest order for dump trucks we have ever placed,” says Frank Ole Sørensen, CEO of Hæhre & Isachsen Maskinutleie. “The DA40 is a very good product and we see advantages in offering one make of machine in this segment. It also has to do with the training of the drivers and the service and maintenance work that is required. There are big differences in operating the different brands of ADT.”

With the 20 new DA40 ADTs being put into operation, 51 of the 59 ADTs in the ‘Hæhre system’ will be from Doosan. Two of the remaining eight are dump trucks in sizes Doosan does not have in its range.

The agreement is also by far the largest ADT order for Rosendal Maskin AS. The previous record was also with Hæhre for 10 Doosan ADTs.

“This means a lot to Rosendal and all machines are being delivered with a service agreement of five years or 10,000 hours. We delivered 20 ADTs in total in 2017, so this is a great start to 2018,” says Ole Marius Rosendal, General Manager of Rosendal Maskin. “Since the record for Rosendal Maskin is 30 dump trucks in one year, there is a strong possibility that 2018 will be a record year for the sale of Doosan ADTs.
