Lister Machinery’s new £1.6m Ashford ‘Super’ depot has opened its doors.
It’s a Winner for Kubota and Rod Gaskin Ltd
Winner Group, one of the UK’s leading plant and equipment hire specialists for the events industry, has strengthened its fleet of Kubota utility vehicles to meet increasing demand from the event hire sector.
The company has recently purchased another four Kubota RTV’s from its local dealer Rod Gaskin Ltd. The deal takes Winner Group’s total fleet of Kubota machines up to 45, and the business will be looking to expand this further over the next 12 months.
Lee Austin, General Manager for Winner Group, commented: “Our recent order of Kubota machinery is part of a significant investment programme by Winner Group to provide our customers with the most durable, hard working and efficient solutions. We are constantly looking to invest in high quality products that add value to the service we provide. Ultimately, our customers all want plant hire equipment that offers maximum performance, reliability and is cost-effective to run.
“Kubota’s range of RTV utility vehicles meet and exceed our customers requirements. The company has built up a reputation for manufacturing one of the most superior solutions available on the market that combine cutting edge technology with the capabilities of withstanding harsh and demanding working environments.”
Kubota’s powerful and versatile range of utility vehicles have been designed with a host of innovative and market leading features to maximise end-user performance and control. The range includes four models (RTV400, RTV500, RTVX900 and RTV1140) in a range of power outputs to suit the most demanding applications.
Lee continued: “The use of utility vehicles in the event industry is growing year on year, not just for outdoor sporting events, but for festivals and shows. All contractors and sub-contractors need transport to move people and materials around sites and these type of machines are perfect for that.
“To put it in perspective, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, approximately 80 utility vehicles were used both for the build process and for the duration of the show. For the Boomtown fair, this figure was more like 100 machines. Our Kubota fleet includes RTV500, RTVX900 and RTV1140 vehicles, but we also have a range of Kubota compact tractors and ride-on mowers for hire too that are very popular.
“Backing up the quality of the Kubota machines is the first class service we receive from Tom Gaskin and everyone at our local Kubota dealer – Rod Gaskin Ltd. They always provide a friendly and professional service supported by excellent technical support. We have worked with them for years and see our relationship going from strength to strength in the future.”Back to articles list
