In total, MJL will take delivery of 12 Kubota KX080-4a2 midi-excavators alongside four KX030-4 GLs and two KX016-4s, both of which are mini-excavators. The new purchase further bolsters MJL’s burgeoning Kubota fleet, which also includes a number of eight tonne excavators purchased in 2015.
Matthew Hodge, Sales & Marketing Manager at Vincent Tractors & Plant, said: “We were delighted to recently complete the major new deal with MJL. As one of the region’s biggest and busiest groundworks specialists, MJL need the best quality machinery that they can rely on to work effectively in all sites and working environments; something they’ve found with Kubota. We look forward to growing the relationship between MJL, Kubota and Vincent Tractors & Plant.”

In order to ensure we are best placed to meet the needs of our customers, it is vital for us to invest in our machinery fleet. It’s fantastic to have had the 18 new excavators delivered as part of our association with Vincent Tractors & Plant. Kubota machinery comes with a well deserved reputation for durability and user friendliness, and we can’t wait to get them out on site!”
