Indiana contractor wins one-year lease contest

Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment America has announced that Richard Johnston, a Westville, Indiana, resident, is the winner of its 2015 “Win a One-Year Lease” contest.

Johnston, who owns of Johnston Landscaping Maintenance Inc., now gets a one-year lease of a Doosan DX140LCR-5 reduced tail swing crawler excavator. He also operates a Doosan DL250-3 wheel loader, which he purchased from Ronson Equipment in Westville.

Johnston added that he will now be able to expand his customer base by taking on a variety of bigger landscaping projects including digging trenches, moving rocks and clearing trees.

“This opens up a whole new venue of possibilities and will be the dream machine for me,” Johnston said. “Confidence, quality and durability are all attributes we have with our DL250-3, so adding a DX140LCR-5 to our fleet will move us into a whole new world of capability.”

Company officials said Johnston’s entry was exactly the type of essay and personal story they were looking for.

“Johnston is a loyal Doosan customer who is looking to expand his landscaping business by using the right equipment,” Laura Ness Owens, a spokeswoman for Doosan North America, said. “The DX140LCR-5 is the perfect excavator to complement Johnston’s expanding equipment fleet. We look forward to helping him be successful.”
