Our good friend and famous former Hyundai demonstrator Doug Potter, attended the event and very kindly sent in some photos, to give us a flavour of the show from the construction equipment area. The show went ahead despite there being a heavy downfall of snow over the weekend prior to the opening day on Tuesday. Even though it was a bitterly cold day, the show was well attended, not surprising considering it is one of the largest agricultural, construction and groundcare dealer shows in the country.
One of the only working demo plots that managed to go ahead due to weather conditions was the New Holland E215C digging plot, where Doug’s replacement in the seat these days, Martin Bourbonneux, seen below with Doug, was putting the 21 ton machine through its paces.
Ernest Doe is one of the longest running UK dealerships for Hyundai construction equipment and models from the company’s latest Dash-9 range were well represented, including the new 6 ton class R60CR, and 8 ton class R80CR, compact radius midi excavators.
Also on display was a brand new Hyundai 210-9, which was fully sign written and ready for delivery to J. T Few Plant Hire Ltd from Great Blakenham, Ipswich, who this year are celebrating 25 years in business.
Thanks go to Doug for sharing these photos with us here on Digger.
Lookout for my dig-in report on the Hyundai 140LC-9, coming soon on the Digger Blog.
