News Item: Customer Demand Drives Lusombe Plant Hire's Continued Investment in Kubota

Long-standing hire specialist, Luscombe Plant Hire, has expanded its extensive mini-excavator fleet with the purchase of five new Kubota machines due to increased customer demand.

Based in Cumbria, the family run business purchased five new U-series Kubota mini-excavators, ranging from 1.5 to 5 tonnes, from PV Dobson & Sons. With over 35 years industry experience, Luscombe Plant Hire now boasts a 25 strong Kubota excavator fleet and has more than 100 plant items on hire throughout South Lakes and Furness Peninsula.

Simon Luscombe, Managing Director at Luscombe Plant Hire, said: "Despite the challenging times we are all facing currently, the construction industry in Cumbria and the Lake District continues to go from strength-to-strength. The local construction firms we deal with who are operating in this current climate have expressed the need for excavators that are reliable and can get the job done, leading us to our Kubota purchasing decision.

"The Kubota U-series excavators are not only versatile machines that are suitable for a wide range of projects and applications, but they also offer excellent durability and digging performance, which meets the requirements of our customer base perfectly.

"In addition to market-leading Kubota machinery, PV Dobson & Sons also provide excellent service and aftersales support, which plays a critical role in our business operations."
