Working at high profile venues

Fineturf and Tillers Turf say they have recently taken delivery of six more Kubota units to their fleet.

Managing director Simon Hutton says that working for high profile clients across the sporting sector comes with high expectations, therefore reliability is key when it comes to specifying new equipment.

“The oldest tractor we have is a Kubota L4630 which is 18 years old, with close to 11,500 hours on it and continues to give us what we need day in, day out” explains Simon. “The simplicity of operation, consistency in performance and value for money we get from the brand is unparalleled.”

Among the recent delivery were two L2522 tractors from the manufacturer’s L2 series of cabbed, compact tractors - taking Simon’s total tally of these machines up to the mid-twenties. “These are the workhorses on our contracting division” he explains. “We’ll have at least one on most jobs, and they’ll remain on site for the duration of the contract whether that’s one day or six months."

While the L2522’s are additions to meet with demand, the new M6111 and M4073 are replacing another brand and join an M6002 series already in use on the Tillers Turf operation. “We use these tractors at every stage of turf production on our 2200 acres - from getting the seed in the ground to getting the turf onto the pallets and out to the customers.

“Where we are now and with the scale of the operation, I honestly believe that without the level of service we get from our equipment and the fabulous people at Kubota who provide outstanding ongoing support, we wouldn’t be in business.”
