PLANTWORX 80% sold out!

The Plantworx team have confirmed that, to date, there are 166 confirmed exhibitors and the show is now 80% sold for the inaugural show (14 – 16 May 2013, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, UK). This must be taken as manufactures having a positive outlook and prepared to make an investment in an unproven event. This is surely because the CEA is behind the event and they have a proven record in marketing in difficult times.

More recent companies to take space include AJC Trailers, Cabcare Products, C & G Engineering, ECY Haulmark, Marubeni Komatsu, MST, Oswald Record and Topcon GB.

These companies join a long list of other leading brands including Ammann, Avant Techno, Case, Finning Caterpillar, Hyundai, Hydrema, JCB, New Holland, Northerntrack, Prolec, Takeuchi, Terex, Thwaites, Ulrich Attachments, Volvo and Wacker Neuson, who will be exhibiting and demonstrating in the Dig Zone of the show, which is now 86% sold and only 2% of the digging demonstration areas remaining.

There are more major manufacturers in the No-Dig Zone, which is almost 54% sold and 20% of demo area remains. Confirmed exhibitors include Bomag, Ladybird Crane Hire, Kubota, Marubeni Komatsu, Merlo, Manitou and Promax Access to name but a few.

    Thwaites is launching a new High-Power version of the company’s 9 tonne front tipping dumperThe Site Clearance Zone is almost 50% sold out confirmed exhibitors includeing Eco Baughans 2000, ECY Haulmark, European Attachments, Taylor Construction Plant and Worsley Plant (Dig-a-Crusher).

Following on from Bauma 2013, much of the plant and equipment on show will be the UK unvieling of what was on show in Germany. Understandably, exhibitors are loath to give too much detail in advanced. However, some exhibitors have given an indication.

Thwaites is launching a new High-Power version of the company’s 9 tonne front tipping dumper (pictured right). This new dumper is fitted with the Perkins 83 kW turbo after cooled engine and develops 111 bhp compared with the standard version which develops 94 bhp.

On a much smaller scale Slanetrac will be showing its HT1000 Tracked Dumper. Powered by a 19 H.P 2 cylinder Lombardini 25 LD 425-2 electric start engine or by a 14 H.P Honda GX 390 electric start engine. This sturdy little track dumper has a load capacity of 1 ton.

Merlo is still devising its plan but has confirmed that it will be showing its new Automatic Implement Recognition system – M CDC (Merlo Dynamic Load Control system). The company is also in the planning stages of organising a "driver’s challenge" at the show.

The show will be the first occasion at a UK exhibition to see and test drive the recently launched Takeuchi TB285 - 8.5 tonnes excavator. Operators will be invited to try out this machine and other Takeuchi models from the 14 strong stable at the show.

Probst Handling Equipment is launching its brand new RVD-4 pipe lifting grab designed for the safe lifting of pipes from transport vehicles and the placement within trenches.
