With less than two months to go until the first Plantworx construction equipment show, exhibitors are starting to reveal the innovations that will be launched at the event.
New Holland will debut a number of new machines to the UK market, including its first Stage IV powered excavator. The company has said that the E85C is the first mid-sized excavator in the industry to meet the new engine emissions regulations that will come into force in 2014. The machine uses Cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (CEGR) technology combined with a simple Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) after-treatment system to meet the new emissions levels.
Also on display on New Holland’s stand will be the E140C SR short radius crawler excavator, top-of-the range L 230 skid steer loader and the 15t WE150B PRO wheeled excavator.
Case Construction Equipment has also revealed the new machines it will launch to the UK market at Plantworx and these include the new CX80C and CX75C SR midi crawler excavators and the WX188 wheeled excavator, which will be on display with the company’s other best-selling models.
Leica Geosystems has announced that it will launch a new buried utility locator called Utili-Finder, which the company has said is easy to use and does not require in-depth training. According to Leica, the Utili-Finder has no user settings or controls, users just need to plug the Utili-Gen unit inside the building and trace the buried electricity cables outside with the locator, marking their path as required.
Plantworx will run from 14 to 16 May at Stoneleigh Park, near Coventry with more than 200 exhibitors with working machines and live demonstrations.
