On your Bike!

The UK’s national construction show opens its gates on May 14 at 09.30am. You should be there if you are interested in cranes or powered access. On show will be crawler cranes, tower cranes, mobile cranes and every conceivable type of powered access equipment. Plus, as our listing shows, there is a wealth of ancillary and complementary exhibits. Latest news is that Liebherr will be exhibiting Ainscough's new 500 tonne LTM 1500.

Kobelco CKE 1800

Some of the tallest booms at the show, always an eye-catching display from the nearby M1, will include a 62 metre Bronto, a 72 metre Liebherr , an 85.3 metre Kobelco crawler and the 32 metre Liftlux scissor lift. There are some noticeable names missing from the show – Demag, Kato, JLG and Grove are staying away – but the other exhibitors seem to have simply increased their presence to take up the space.

Liebherr MK80

A new feature at this year’s SED is a Truck Zone, organised with Truck Magazine, where visitors will be able to view the very latest trucks from some of the major truck manufacturers. SED 2002 is also turning back the clock with the very first working display of antique construction machinery in the show’s 36-year history. As the show quickly approaches, more and more classic machines are set to appear in the line up. Hosted by Miller’s Classic Plant, and in conjunction with the Antique Caterpillar Machinery Owners Club, visitors to SED are promised a trip down memory lane.

Tadano Faun's ATF 80-4

But the Cranes & Access village will be dominated by a forest of booms from the crane and access industry. To paraphrase what that famous politician once said, if you want to create some new business opportunities “get on your bike” and head for SED.
