Exhibits will include an Arocs 8x4 3240K M cab, featuring a Thompsons muck-away body, an Arocs 120-tonne 6x4 3351S Heavy Haulage tractor and a Fuso Canter 7C15 Tipper.
What product/innovation will you launch at the show? The new Arocs. Its new in-line six-cylinder engine, new higher levels of safety and driver comfort caters for the needs of the owner operator. It's robust, powerful and efficient.
What was the best thing about last year's show? Its people; seeing, meeting and spending time with both customers old and new. What would you change about the tipping industry if you had the power? The construction industry has been through a turbulent time over the past few years, so a sustained period of stability, strength and growth would be beneficial, allowing the industry to invest with confidence. I'd also add an increased focus on delivering a more efficient approach to construction logistics, through driver training and fleetboard telematics, which would help maximise fuel consumption, minimise CO2 emissions and deliver an efficient operation.
