A sizeable chunk of the plant industry will descend once more on Fen Farm, Milton Keynes, for SED.
This year the show promises to be even bigger than before, expanded to include concrete technology in The Concrete Show and new truck and tool zones. A selection of highlights follows over the following six pages
Pride of place on the Ausa stand will be taken by a new compact version of the firm's successful CH200 4x2 hydrostatic rough terrain forklift.
This 2-tonne capacity machine combines a low overall height of less than 2 m, a width of just 1.36 m and a turning radius of 2.8 m. Power is supplied by a four cylinder Isuzu 4LE2 water-cooled diesel engine driving through Ausa's own COMPEN hydrostatic system. Ausa says that this system ensures a smooth and secure drive with permanent and integrated automatic traction.
A single multi-function joystick controls the raising, lowering and tilting of the mast, as well as forward and reverse travel. The control of the hydrostatic system can be programmed to suit different operating modes.
Ausa UK general manager Ged Bibby says: 'The CH200 Compact will give us the edge where space is tight and there's limited headroom.'
Also at SED this year is Ausa's latest self-loading dumper with hydraulic tilting shovel, the 175RMS. Ausa, Stand 226, Avenue M
