Local dealer Lister Wilder has sold Rabbit & Dowling four KX080-4 (eight tonne) and two U48-4 (five tonne) excavators.

Steve Charman, managing director of Rabbit & Dowling, said: “We have utilised Kubota’s mini-excavators for several years, but this is the first time we have ventured with their larger machinery due to a significant demand from the commercial market for five and eight tonne machines.

“It was a simple choice to make as not only is the Kubota brand synonymous with performance and reliability, but also the efficiency and low running costs of its machinery is of huge benefit to our customers. By working closely with Lister Wilder, we are now in a better position to meet the requirements of those customers.”
