Impressive level of innovation

With a record 183 exhibitors, Show 10 was an unrivalled opportunity for hirers to see the latest products for our industry. EHN reports on some of the highlights.

Sweet success for Euro Towers

Euro Towers was marking its 25th anniversary at the Show, and, as in previous years, it was offering appropriate confectionery to visitors on the stand, including Celebrations and chocolates wrapped in silver foil. Amongst the products on display were cantilever towers which, the

company says, are the subject of increasing interest since PASMA introduced a dedicated training course on such systems. Also on show was the Euro One aluminium tower which is designed for quick assembly by one person and can be finished in hi-viz colours. Displayed in a glass cabinet was an eye-catching model of a tower that had been created using a 3D printer. This is a technique that the company can use when developing bespoke designs for evaluation, prior to production.

MHM in demand

MHM reported considerable interest from visitors in products across

its range. “Generally, there is great demand for core products like 6kVA to 100kVA generators, petrol welders and welfare unit generators,” MD Mat Llewellyn told EHN. “We are also being asked to do a lot of special builds, including generators combining diesel generators with hybrid battery powered units. “Our contract hire initiative is proving very popular. For a minimum term of 16 months, hirers are charged a competitive rate for the machines and this allows them to plan ahead to meet seasonal peaks in demand, such as from customers in the summer events market, without having an impact on their capital expenditure.”

Hire Supply Co certainly entered into the celebratory spirit surrounding Show 10. As a light-hearted diversion, interspersed between the products on display were 10 boards listing the Top 10 in various categories, such as 10 richest people in the world, 10 most attractive men and women, and 10 best one-liners, as well as HSC’s Top 10 best-selling products last year. HSC staff also wore special ‘Show 10’ branded shirts. The theme extended to a contest on the stand, in which entrants had to press a button to estimate when ten seconds had elapsed on a large screen display.

HSC had no fewer than 10 Show-only offers to tempt visitors, as did sister company Midland Power Distribution. The latter’s stand display included the latest models in its Active grounds care equipment range, such as long-reach hedge trimmers and pole pruners.

0845 309 0707 Husqvarna cuts a dash

New from Husqvarna is the TS 60 tile saw. It has a patented water and slurry containment system to ensure that the water used during the cutting process remains in the tray underneath, for more efficient, cleaner operation, and to enable indoor cutting tasks. The water stream is also directed towards the blade and the material being cut to cool them. The machine has a removable table to give a cutting length of up to 700mm, and diagonal cuts can be achieved on tiles up to 50cm by 50cm. It was being shown to gauge interest from hirers, and the company says that the feedback was so positive that it will be introducing it to the UK shortly. Also on display for evaluation was the FS 3500 floor saw, which accepts blades with diameters from 66cm to 76cm and can cut to a maximum depth of 29cm. It has a one-piece frame that is designed to enable the machine to go through a 91cm doorway.
