UK’s first Dressta dozer dresses up the beaches
The UK's first Dressta dozer deployed at Chesil Beach, England
The UK’s first Dressta dozer has been deployed to the high profile Chesil Beach flood defence works in Portland, County Dorset, southern England, where it has been working as part of the fleet of machines working for the UK Environment Agency in conjunction with military kit from the Royal Engineers.
This machine was part of a recent large order received by Portsmouth-based Construction Plant & Machinery Sales to supply Chinese machines including 20 LiuGong excavators for J. Ffrench Plant Hire of Iver, County Buckinghamshire.
The Dressta TD-15M Extra dozer, which has an operating weight of 20,110kg and is powered by a six-cylinder Cummins QSC 8.3 engine, and was engaged in pushing back an estimated 100,000m³ of pebbles that were washed back out to sea during the recent violent storms that have blighted the area.
The machine has been working in tandem with another larger dozer from the J.Ffrench Plant Hire fleet, a Komatsu D85PX model.
Dressta, which has a factory in Poland, is owned by LiuGong Machinery Corporation, enabling LiuGong customers to essentially source a complete package of machines from one dealer.
