Komatsu set to bring sparkle to world’s biggest trade fair

VISITORS will fi nd a touch of sparkle at Komatsu’s FM.713/1 stand at the 32nd edition of the leading European trade fair Bauma, which takes place in Munich 8 – 14 April 2019.

Bauma 2019 promises a number of world premieres, details of which will not be released until the event itself. Forecasting what these under-wrap developments might be, industry watchers point to the innovative world of digital and environmental technologies as the likely subjects – which Komatsu claims to be at the forefront of.

McHale Plant Sales, Komatsu’s Ireland distributor, will be sharing centre stage alongside the Japanese manufacturer.

Company director, John O’Brien, says McHale’s Bauma collaboration will be “a turning point for owners and operators, and for the entire construction industry”.

Specifi cally, it is very exciting for McHale to work alongside Komatsu and deliver the company’s Intelligent Machine Control, which was fi rst announced at Bauma six years ago.

LSS gives 2019 a ‘kick-start’ with Sheffi eld motorbike trial sponsorship

LSS WASTE Management, the Leeds- based total waste management provider, once again stepped up to the plate by sponsoring the Martin Lampkin Indoor Motorbike Trials 2019 at Sheffi eld’s FlyDSA Arena.

The event, which took place in front of a capacity crowd in the arena on 5 January, saw the world’s best trial riders congregate in Sheffi eld to tackle an obstacle course designed by multiple world trials champion, Dougie Lampkin and his brother, Harry.

As in previous years, a key element of LSS’ sponsorship deal was the supply of a mix of fully branded six, eight and 14-yard skips, which were built into a 30m long, 3.5m high leg of the course that included a 2m high sheer wall from ground to initial platform.

outdoor and 12-time indoor world champion, Toni Bou, successfully managed the 2-metre leap; but following the event a host of riders kept LSS’ drivers waiting until the early hours as they worked with Dougie Lampkin on beating the obstacle.

Nigel Woolford, Managing Director and Founder of LSS Waste, said: “The indoor trials are one of my favourite nights of the year – and defi nitely the ideal way to kick- start any new year.

“We’ve loved being involved as sponsors over the years and look forward to continuing to do so for many years to come. Although hopefully next year, Dougie and Harry will make our section a little less impassable.”

Based in purpose-built facilities in Cross Green, Leeds, LSS Waste Management provides nationwide total waste

management solutions for commercial customers, while also providing residential skip hire services for customers across Yorkshire.

Elsewhere on Komatsu’s stand, the Japanese manufacturer will exhibit no fewer than 30 machines and their attachments ranging from the versatile MR-5 to the powerful PC4000 mining excavator.

These showcased products include the newer ‘Dash 8’ wheel and backhoe loaders, ‘Dash 11’ excavators, and the innovative HB215LC-3 and HB365NLC-3 hybrid excavators, both equipped with EU Stage IV engines.
