Robertson Fencing Ltd is an agricultural/forestry contracting company. They work with forestry companies, land managers and highland estates. Combining its diverse range of services to deliver projects safely and to a high standard.

Woodland creation and establishment works are Robertson Fencing’s speciality. Applying a collaborative approach to fencing and forestry ground preparation operations, increasing efficiency and collaboration, whilst reducing supervision and on site management.

In the last three years, Robertson Fencing has taken delivery of eight new Doosan excavators from Balgownie. The new Doosan excavators include two DX160LC-5 HT 16 tonne high track crawler excavators, five DX140LC-5 14 tonne crawler excavators and a DX63-3 6 tonne mini-excavator.

The arrival of the new Doosan excavators, doubling the fleet of crawler excavators, has helped Robertson Fencing to continue to expand. Enabling them to meet the demands of the buoyant forestry sector and ambitious woodland creation targets in Scotland.

Managing Director, Rab Robertson, said:

“The first Doosan machine we purchased was a DX140LC-5. Recommended by David Moir at Balgownie and the performance of this machine convinced us to purchase the rest of the Doosan machines.”

The high performance of the DX140LC-5 crawler excavator includes a 5% increase in engine power and 4% greater torque over the previous version of this machine.

In addition, traction has been boosted. With an increase in drawbar pull of about 18% and front lifting capacity has been increased on average by 10% and side capacities are 12.5% higher.

The fuel consumption in the DX140LC-5 has been lowered by 3% compared to the previous generation excavator.
The continuing expansion into the forestry ground preparation sector at Robertson Fencing provides a perfect fit to complement the company’s established fencing operations.

Rab Robertson said:

“Our operators have been impressed by the comfort and reliability of all of the Doosan excavators. The new Doosan High Track excavators offer a specialised design for the forestry industry. With a high ground clearance and a bigger, stronger undercarriage.”
