Annual cranes & access event goes from strength to strength

Leigh Sparrow, Managing Director of Vertikal Press, the event organizer, began this annual show 6 years ago on a very simple principle. “Keep it simple and low cost”. The idea initially appealed to a small group of companies but this has grown over the years and is now firmly established on the event’s calendar. However, despite growing, the basic principle is the same . . every exhibitor gets a patch of grass on which to erect a simple marquee and show/demonstrate equipment.

Leigh SparrowRoger Lindley, Editor of Contracors World asked Leigh Sparrow (left) on how this year’s event compared.

“This year’s event attracted several new exhibitors and now in its sixth year word of mouth recommendations are really beginning to gather steam. Visitor numbers were up by just over 12.5 percent, and amazingly the exceptionally focused attendance – mostly senior managers from the UK crane and access rental industry and specialist managers from major end users – has held up. We expected by now to see more non-decision makers/influencers coming along – just for a day out, but, so far have not, which is surprising given our unique all inclusive format.

Feedback from both exhibitors and visitors has been incredible- truly humbling and most importantly it makes all our hard work worthwhile.

This year it was encouraging to see many companies using the show to launch new products, as well as sending their senior global executives along to help man the stands. The overall mood was surprisingly upbeat and most companies did a great deal of business over the two days.

Finally we were very lucky with the weather, for the second year in a row, bad weather left Haydock Park almost untouched as it swirled around nearby. Hopefully that luck will stay with us next year.”

Demonstrating the company’s strong commitment to the telescopic handler market, Bobcat exhibited for the first time at the Vertikal Days Exhibition, the UK and Ireland’s fastest growing Lifting and Access event. Bobcat showed the company’s new TR50210 rotary telescopic handler and high horsepower TL470HF telescopic handlers.

The rotating capability of the new range of rotary telehandlers allows the machines to serve the needs of an entire site from just one position, meeting an increasing demand for this type of telehandler. They offer exceptional stability for lifting heavy materials either vertically up to a roof or horizontally onto the edge of an excavated site, reducing construction time and costs and increasing safety and efficiency on site.

The new TR50210 model offers 360º rotation, with a maximum lifting capacity of 5000 kg and a maximum lifting height on stabilisers of 20.5 m. It is one of four rotary telescopic handlers now available from Bobcat offering maximum lift capacities from 3.5 to 5.0 tonne and maximum lifting heights from 15.7 m to 24.5 m. They complement the existing range of 12 rigid frame telehandlers from Bobcat with lift capacities from 2.2 to 4.0 tonne and lift heights from 5.2 to 17.4 m.

The rotary telehandlers can be supplied with a variety of Bobcat attachments, including man platforms, extension jibs, buckets and pallet forks for transporting bricks and other materials. Equipped with these attachments, the telehandlers offer all the operational advantages of a rigid-frame telescopic handler combined with a light and versatile rotating crane.
