Delivery Of New 3T Excavators Brings In Final Fleet Updates For 2023

WHC Hire is excited to announce the investment of 11 brand-new Kubota 3T (KX27-4) excavators into our fleet. This brings about the last of the equipment updates for 2023, with even more new unit updates due in the new year. So far this year, WHC has heavily reinvested in the quality and safety of our fleet with all our clients in mind. During the year we have welcomed brand new ATV vehicles, petrol log splitters, tracked dumpers, 25 6T excavators, a new excavator attachment line up and compact multi-function loaders. Adding these new Kubota 3T excavators is part of our commitment to our clients to provide the safest and most productive on the market.

The Kubota KX27-4 offers the largest cabin space in its class for the 2-3T excavator range on the market. This is supported by its tough and compact design which is ideal for a wide range of applications. From utility projects to landscaping and everything in between. One of the greatest benefits that this 3T excavator has to offer is its compact track width. This feature makes it even more versatile than previous excavators offered in this weight category. The machine also offers world-class performance power through its highly esteemed hydraulic system, all in first-rate comfort.

In addition, the performance of this excavator is backed by The KX27-4’s powerful digging force from its own stage V Kubota E-TVCS original engine. This, including its simulations four-function operation, makes for one of the highest-performing excavators currently on the market. With a gross weight of 2,590kg this excavator can be safely transported on a trailer without any additional licence requirements. This excavator also is designed to work with WHC Hire’s patented excavator transport system designed by MD James Clutterbuck.

MD James Clutterbuck said “We are delighted to welcome these brand new 3T Kubota excavators into the WHC Hire fleet. As a commitment to our clients, we had several machines in our 3T range that were due for updating. We have previously operated the JCB 8026 for some time in this weight category and it has been a fantastic asset. Nevertheless, after completing a full assessment of the machines currently available on the market, the Kubota KX27-4 stood out as the best suited for our clients. Its stage V engine provides high-performance results at the most economical of levels. The benefits of its compact design, I feel, will offer a massive productivity impact on the way that operators work in confined spaces. With the accessibility and serviceability that this machine offers, our in-house teams will be able to work faster to meet the demand of our customers. Currently, I have only invested in 11 of these new machines. However, in 2024 I will be reassessing the market to make a larger investment in our 3T excavator range across all our WHC Hire depots. Be sure to watch this space for more.”
