Latest machines from some of the major construction equipment manufacturers will be on show at the Royal Highland Centre, near Edinburgh next weekend for ScotPlant 2018.

ScotPlant is the biggest event in the Scottish plant industry calendar, with more than 150 exhibitors, including JCB, Volvo, Liebherr, Case, Sandvik, Komatsu, Doosan, Hyundai, Takeuchi, Wacker Neuson and Kubota.

Among machines on show will be the new Hyundai HX130 LCR crawler excavator, making its European debut, which will be on the Young Plant Sales stand. The machine is the third compact-radius excavator in Hyundai’s HX series product line.

JCB has confirmed its new X-Series 20-tonne excavators will be on show, while ScotPlant debutant Molson Green will have the Sennebogen 817E, a compact purpose-built material handler specifically designed for use in confined spaces or indoors.

Takeuchi is showing its TB225 towable mini excavator while Terex company TDL Equipment will be promoting its new Scottish partnership with Mecalac.

Access Platform Sales will be showing off the Hinowa Lightlift 13.70, a 13-metre tracked boom lift, and its larger counterpart, the Lightlift 20.10.

Marubeni-Komatsu returned to ScotPlant two years ago following a 14-year absence. The firm is back again with a line-up that includes the new Komatsu PC80MR-5 midi excavator with integrated counterweight and reduced tail swing.

The tiltrotator market will be represented by exhibitors including Steelwrist UK, Engcon dealer JCC Group and Highland Hammer Hire, the recently appointed Scottish distributors for Rototilt.
