Kubota UK Mini Sales Top 30,000

World leading mini excavator manufacturer Kubota has achieved a major milestone, with UK sales of their machines now having topped 30,000; becoming the first manufacturer to do so in the British market.

Kubota are providing the opportunity for everyone to share in this success, with the chance to win a KX61-3 mini excavator worth around £20,000.

This special 30,000th machine has been generously donated by Kubota as the superb prize in a charity draw, with proceeds in aid of the Lighthouse Club Benevolent Fund (The Construction Industry Charity).

Tickets cost just £5.00 each and will be available from Kubota Construction Equipment dealers and Lighthouse Club contacts, as well as on Kubota stands at various events around the country, throughout the year, with the actual draw then to take place on Monday 10th November 2008.

Richard Harrison, Kubota UK Sales & Marketing Manager, said: "We are proud to be celebrating record-breaking sales and would like to thank all our customers for making this possible, as well as our nationwide network of specialist construction dealers for their continuing sales effort and outstanding customer support."

Kubota is the UK, European and world leader in mini excavators and offers the widest range of machines available from a single manufacturer. Customers can select from 18 base models spanning the weight range from 850 kg to 8 tonnes and including the largest selection of increasingly popular zero tail swing machines.

All Kubota minis, from 1.5 tonne upwards, feature their unique 'ANTI-THEFT' system. This complete, easy-to-use security device was the first and is still the only one of its kind fitted as standard equipment by a mini excavator manufacturer.

With a legendary reputation for quality, performance, reliability and excellent resale values, their productivity and versatility make them the ideal tool for many different applications and end-users, from civil engineering to landscaping and plant hire companies to owner operators.
