He commented: “We’ve got a very strong working relationship with Kubota and Rocket Rentals, so it was great to oversee the new deal which bolsters the company’s Kubota fleet to over 70 machines. The performance of the KX and U excavators are second to none and will no doubt add value to the success of the plant hire company.”

Our aim is to provide our customers with the best machinery possible in the construction industry and we feel confident that the reliability and performance of the Kubota’s allows us to continue offering this service.
