Hillhead plant show kicks off next week

Next week sees the three-day Hillhead construction, recycling and quarrying equipment show taking place at Buxton in Derbyshire.

With many plant buyers, specifiers and suppliers unable to make it to April’s Bauma because of the volcanic ash cloud, it will be the first chance for the UK market to see some of the latest offerings from the big manufacturers.
Among those exhibiting will be Liebherr, Volvo Construction Equipment, Atlas Copco, Manitou, Korec, JCB and New Holland.

JCB will showcase a range of models from its heavyline range of equipment for the quarrying, demolition and recycling industries on their stands and in a dedicated demonstration area.

The firm’s recycling and waste handling machines include the JS200 Materials Handler Wastemaster and 456 Wastemaster wheeled loading shovel.

Equipment for the arduous demolition environment on show includes the JS260XD (Extra-Duty), which features a strengthened boom and dippers, rugged undercarriage guarding and covers and side rail protection systems.
Visitors will also see a JS360 tracked excavator utilising a pulveriser attachment and a JS220 powering a hydraulic
cutter attachment.

Westquay Trading, the UK distributor for many specialist trenching brands, will be exhibiting a new mini trencher from Tesmec, as well as two of the firm’s Rock Hawgs, which trench, excavate, crush and recycle in a one machine application.

Also on display at Westquay’s stand will be a range of crusher buckets and a road planer from Simex PLB300, and a tracked loader with excavating wheel from Takeuchi and a new Bomag paver.

  • The show takes place on 22-24 June. For more information visit
