An American editor once said unnamed sources often say more than they know, and journalists quoting them report more than they hear.
There’s a case in point this week, as readers who have been following our Discussion Forums would know. A while ago, rumours emerged about something that we are only able to officially report this week: Doosan has acquired UK dealer Rushlift.
Unfortunately, as journalists, we have to abide by certain requirements which are not imposed on forum posters. We can’t simply report rumour. We have to verify and corroborate. And that means sticking to the “official” timetable - the schedule worked out by those intimately involved.
So, don’t be surprised if our unnamed sources on the forum beat us to the punch again. At least that avenue means that you’re getting the best of both worlds - unconfirmed reports AND the official version (when it’s released).

"Question is, what does this mean for all the other Doosan dealers? You now have a national Doosan dealer owned by the manufacturer. Who is the OEM going to favour????".
Helper, United Kingdom
"In the manufacturing operation, I just don't have the space to manage the battery charging/changes. Even if I did, I can't justify the investment to switch. We've become very cost effective at running the snot out of LP trucks. I don't have an apples to apples comparison in the same facility, but across facilities, my cost per hour electric vs LP is close to a wash.".
Beeker, United States
"Dale, please -do- mention where those particular "aftermarket" sensors came from? (local auto-parts store?) This is a concern that, in the last year or so, has cost the company I work for a lot of money 're- diagnosing' the problems with cam and crank sensors from "aftermarket" sources. it looks to me like the OEM parts I am replacing have come from a different manufacturing source than the OEM sensors I am removing.".
