50 new Kubota machines for Hewitson Plant Hire

Hewitson Plant Hire, an independent family-run hire specialist supplying equipment throughout the North East and Yorkshire, has expanded its extensive excavator fleet by investing in 50 new Kubota machines following a period of significant business growth.

The company purchased the new Kubota machines from P V Dobson & Sons, with the order comprising micro-excavators through to 8-tonne diggers. The new order includes Kubota’s new 5-tonne mini-excavator, the U50-5, powered by a Stage 5 compliant Kubota-built engine. It also features a load sensing hydraulic system for smoother operation regardless of load size, float function for easy ground finishing, as well as an auto-shift system that offers “intuitive control when dozing and turning”. In addition, the U50-5 has new cab and exterior designs, plus enhanced insulation, improved visibility.
