"Its Snow problem with Kubota"

GGM & Kubota saves the day on a snow covered road near Colne in Lancashire.

Kubota in snow rescue ...


From 5.00 pm on Friday night (22nd March, 2013) the A6068 Keighley Road, near Colne was impassable,

when an Articulated Lorry stuck in the deep snow, was attempted to be overtaken by a second Articulated Lorry, in an area locally known as ‘The Moss’. 


Nathan Eastwood, an employee of Gibsons Garden Machinery Ltd at Colne, was driving a Company demonstration Kubota M135GX Tractor home, came upon the lorries and was snow ploughing to clear the road to enable them to move, when a speeding car, trying to overtake the lorries, crashed down the side of them both, totally blocking the road from 12.00 midnight until 5.00am.


To avoid damaging the car, Rossendale & Pendle Mountain Rescue winched the car out of the way, whilst Nathan continued to pull both lorries out with the Kubota M135GX Tractor.
