Kubota will also be showcasing host of new machines that are making their debut UK appearance at the show. This includes high-spec versions of two of its popular mini excavators, the Kubota KX101-3 and the Kubota U27-4.

Alongside the excavators, the latest developments in Kubota’s tracked carrier and wheel loader ranges will be on display, including the UK premier of the KC250H-4 3 way tipping body and the latest specification of the R065. Hillhead 2016 will also see the launch of Kubota’s new partnership with Trakm8, which will provide leading telematics solutions for Kubota machines.

In addition to the machines, Kubota will be exhibiting a selection of its industry leading engines solutions on stand.

Dave Roberts, Managing Director of Kubota UK, commented: “Kubota will be proudly highlighting our 50,000th excavator sale at Hillhead this year, a fitting occasion with it being the biggest show of its kind in the UK.

“Since our first excavator sale in 1979, we haven’t lost sight of the importance of continually innovating our product and service offering for our customers, giving us the best opportunity to maintain Kubota’s position as market leader for compact construction equipment.”
