THE worlds largest construction equipment exhibition at Munich in April looks set to be even bigger than before.

The organisers say more than 1,600 manufacturers from all over the globe have already registered for the show, and this includes 80 UK companies. This compares to 1,450 stands at the last Bauma held in1992.

The show covers all aspects of the construction market, including earthmoving, lifting, demolition, recycling and access equipment.

The open air site is expected to cover in excess of 20,000 sq m and there will be a further 10,000 sq m in the exhibition halls.

The last show attracted around 320,000 visitors and the organisers are confident of attracting even more this year.

On this spread and the following page Mike Woof previews some of the machines revealed to the press at the end of last month.
