Operators across the UK and Ireland are being invited to put their machinery-driving skills to the test, all as part of Kubota's celebrations to mark 25 years as the country’s biggest selling mini-excavator manufacturer.

The #Kubota25Challenge invites operators to submit a short video of themselves showing off their niftiest excavator skills while in the cab of a Kubota machine. 'The Digger Girl' Amy Underwood, has filmed her own example to inspire entries.

Entry to the Kubota challenge is open until 30th June 2022, with videos to be submitted via direct message on Kubota’s Facebook and Twitter social channels. Operators are asked to ensure that 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.
