York Area Group has contributed funding of £9,000, to enable the purchase of a preloved Kubota 2.8T KX71-3 mini digger for the Levisham Station Group. It has had a full service with replacement pins and bushes where required and comes with 4 buckets. This will help them to maintain lineside ditches, roadways, scrub and retaining walls and obviates the need to repeatedly hire in such a machine. The mini digger is a 2011 model with just 2,300 hours on the clock and, as can be seen from the photos, it is in very good condition.
