SDMO adds Kohler options SDMO Generators is adding new machines

powered by the latest range of Kohler Command

petrol engines, which it believes offers several benefits to the hire industry. They are designed to provide more power without increasing the overall footprint, simple maintenance and longer operation between refuelling. The manufacturer says that, in many instances, the engines can be retro-fitted without the need to drill additional holes or make adaptations to the framework, and they are backed by a limited 3-year warranty, which includes hire fleet products, subject to certain conditions.

The range of engines includes 7 and 9.5hp units fitted with Quad-Clean air filtration, which doubles as a warm air intake for optimal operation in the winter months. SDMO has already produced the Perform 3000, a 3kW portable generator fitted with the 7hp CH270 Kohler engine, and more products are in the pipeline.

Showman’s Show set to celebrate

This year’s Showman’s Show, taking place at the Newbury Showground on 20 and 21 October, will be the 25th, and everything from pens at the registration desk to the exhibition hall frontage will be branded with a special logo to signify the achievement. The first Showman’s Show was held in Newark in 1984 and had just 50 exhibitors, whereas this year’s event is expected to attract more than 350. It was believed to be the first exhibition of its kind to give suppliers the opportunity to show products in an environment most suited to their use. Initially, the Show was held at a different venue each time. Missing out 1987 and 1989, it became an annual event from 1990 and established its Newbury location 17 years ago. Covering an area of 95,000m2


the exhibition will display items such as temporary structures, roadways and bridges, mobile toilets, lifting gear and plant hire, audio-visual and radio communications and entertainments. For more information visit

Best Practice Guidance for MEWPs

The Strategic Forum Plant Safety Group has published new guidance intended to help reduce the risk of trapping and crushing injuries to people working with mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs). The document has been published by CPA on behalf of the Group and is available for free download from the Association’s website at The increased use of MEWPs in construction, maintenance and other applications where trapping risks are present has led to accidents in which people have been trapped between the platform (often referred to as a cage or basket) and objects in the work area. Part 1 is aimed at planners, managers, and trainers. It provides information on hazards, risk assessment, controls and responsibilities. Part 2 is aimed at those using and supervising MEWPs and can be used in briefings or toolbox talks.
