Its current fleet consists of 30 Kubota machines from both the KX and U-Series. It has been working with machinery specialist PV Dobsons to help with fleet expansion and replacement.

JN Bentley, which was taken over last week by its joint venture partner Mott MacDonald, is buying three Kubota mini-excavators types: the KX080-4, U55-4 and KX101-3.

The eight-tonne KX080-4 is the most powerful digger in Kubota’s range. The four-cylinder Kubota engine uses direct injection (DI) to maximise digging strength.

JN Bentley plant manager Kevin Young said: “We’ve been using Kubota machinery for over 10 years and are very pleased with their reliability and durability.

 “It’s a very busy time for us with projects in the building and civil engineering industry thanks to new and extended contracts secured with the likes of Yorkshire Water and United Utilities. We require machines that we can trust to get the job done, and Kubota fits the bill.”

Andrew Dobson of PV Dobsons added: “We’ve been supplying Kubota machines since 2006 and feedback has always been very positive. The KX080-4 in particular, one the most efficient and innovative machines on the market, has been a popular choice with customers since its launch.”
