Plantworx to welcome Niftylift
By Euan Youdale28 February 2017
Niftylift will be making its debut at the UK’s Plantworx Construction Machinery Exhibition in June.
One of the highlights on the Niftylift stand (F49) will be the new Nifty 120T. It is a trailer mounted platform that can be towed easily by a small commercial vehicle or 4X4. With a 12.2m working height and 6.1m outreach, it has a telescopic upper boom to give up-and-over access to hard-to-reach locations, as well as low level outreach where it’s often needed most.
Plantworx returns to Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, Leicestershire, from 6-8 June 2017, and is the UK’s largest construction equipment show. It is hosted by the CEA (Construction Equipment Association).
To date it has more than 320 confirmed exhibitors signed up for the event, meaning it is more than 90% sold out. Of those, 104 are new exhibitors to the show and include attachment manufacturer Arden Equipment UK, Atlas Copco Construction and Mining, Mantis Cranes, tiltrotator manufacturer Rototilt UK, tool manufacturers Hilti (Great Britain) and Husqvarna Construction Products, MFG - a manufacturer of excavation support systems; and Italian attachment manufacturer Cangini Benne.
Also new to the show is Axpan, a French manufacturer of micro machines specialising in earth moving equipment for tight and restricted access, as is Southern Plant Spares, which will be showing its new range of Rhinox Buckets (stand G45). Tracking specialist AMI Group is another new exhibitor. The company has recently launched what it calls a new state-of-the-art tracking device which provides personal protection for lone workers.
