Ken Pink Plant Hire opts for red & grey Takeuchiís

Established some 26 years ago, Ken Pink Plant Hire is a diverse company, operating in such sectors as quarrying, civil engineering and plant hire, either with fully trained operators supplied or on a self-drive basis. The company currently runs an impressive fleet of over 80 machines, which range from 3 ton mini excavators up to 35 ton excavators and articulated dumptrucks. The recent addition of two TB250 Takeuchi 5 ton models, was highly influenced by their experience with an earlier used 2.5 ton model as plant manager Mark Roberts explained.† ďTakeuchi is a good tried and tested brand. We had previously purchased a used TB125, which was excellent for our business.† The combination of the good all round features of the TB250 and with immediate delivery available, we had no hesitation in choosing the Takeuchiís from CBLĒ img_1037 Pictured in the photo are, Ken Pink Plant Hireís plant manager Mark Roberts (right) and CBL plant salesman Steve Ruddell (Left) at the handover of the machines.
