Fiat-Kobelco is to announce its dealers for the UK and Ireland within the next few days, according to spokesman Angelo Ricardi.

A dealer for Scotland, the north and Ireland will be appointed to join Molson, the dealer being signed for the rest of England. The firm has unveiled new excavators and loaders, which it believes combine the best of its former partnership with Hitachi with the fruits of its venture with Kobelco. Mr Ricardi said: 'We now have the Mercedes of excavators, having taken what we have learnt with Hitachi about valve technology with the leadership that Kobelco brings in excavators.'
