And finally… Can you dig it?
Operators across the UK and Ireland are being invited to put their machinery skills to the test by Kubota UK, as part of the business’s ongoing celebrations to mark 25 years as the country’s biggest selling mini-excavator manufacturer.
The #Kubota25Challenge is encouraging operators to submit a short video of themselves showing off their niftiest excavator skill while in the cab of a Kubota, with Amy Underwood, aka The Digger Girl, filming her own example to inspire entries.
Entry to the challenge is open until 30th June 2022, with videos to be submitted via direct message on Kubota’s Facebook and Twitter social channels.
Operators should ensure videos are in line with manufacturer guidelines and safe working practices.
Rob White - divisional manager, construction at Kubota UK, said: “We can’t wait to put operators across the UK and Ireland to the test this summer with our #Kubota25Challenge. We know there are some highly skilled operators working on sites nationwide, so are confident that the competition is going to be fierce.
“Whether it’s dunking a basketball or taking the top of a bottle, we want operators to let their skills do the talking and show us what they’re made of.”
A final shortlist of entries will be revealed in July with the public deciding the outright winner via voting across social media. The overall winning entry will receive a state-of-the-art Makita radio and exclusive Kubota merchandise bundle.
