Bauma opens at 9:30 in the morning, the entire Vertikal press team will be at the show at great expense to report the news and new developments back to you, as close to when it happens as we are able at such a busy exhibition.
In order to give you a bit of a preliminary overview we have managed a quick tour of the main FS outdoor area during build up.
The report is by no means complete and we will update and add as we go, but also check twitter for breaking news which is carried in a more prominent position on the home page for this week. If you are at the show, we are hoping to demonstrate the last test version of the all new Vertikal.Net news portal and database, with plans to go live mid month. Make sure you stop by the stand, say hello and collect a copy of the guide. We are located in Area FM at the entrance to the outside area.
Key news will of course focus around Tadano’s acquisition of Demag, which is expected to complete on July first, subject to any regulatory objects etc… But there are plenty of new products to see, from Liebherr’s all new 650 tonne LTM All Terrain crane, to the Genie Z45 hybrid, Snorkel’s lithium battery powered Rough Terrain Speed Level, JLG’s new lithium powered 45 and 51ft articulated booms, Ruthmann’s new 30 metre truck mounted lift on a 3.5 tonne Iveco or Mercedes Sprinter Chassis, Demag’s updated CC2800-2 crawler crane, Platform Basket’s 43 metre 43T spider lift, to Manitou’s new 60ft electric boom and hybrid telehandlers, Skyjacks new big RT scissors, Zoomlion’s new All Terrain cranes and scissor lifts, ELS new telehandler and mast boom, to the new Maeda Mini crawler and Kato 100 tonne All Terran and Liebherr’s 110 tonne five axle LTM with 60 metre boom and plenty more – too numerous to mention.
