Precision and power equipment in motion at the Midlands Machinery Show

The Midlands Machinery Show, taking place in the coming weeks (November 16 and 17, at Newark Showground), will feature three areas dedicated to demonstrating the biggest, best and newest machinery on offer.

In the large ag and handler arena, the most recent additions to the telehandler and wheeled loader market will be thoroughly put through their paces – simulating practical farming activities and demonstrating lifting, handling and manoeuvrability.

Demonstrating the advancement of electric power and design in the large ag arena will be Abiljo with the first 100% electric skid steer loader, the Elise 900 from First Green Industries.

For the diesel-powered machines, in the demo ring, visitors can see the Manitou MLT 961-160V + L, the Manitou MLT 741-130PS, and the Manitou ULM 412. Plus the compact Merlo TF42.7 telehandler and the Mecalac MCR 8t digger.

JCB telehandlers can be found on the Sharmans stand, such as the JCB 560-80 – one of the largest on the market, with a six-ton capacity and 8m reach.

DroneAg will also be showing Show attendees its automated crop-scouting drone software, Skippy Scout, which automates drone flight, image capture, and a range of crop assessment tasks.

There will be a whole host of equipment in the compact demo arena too, including the Raymo Torpedo from Iseki UK. This fully electric or hybrid-powered remote-controlled mower is solar-fuelled, and is aimed at contractors and land management services that undertake tasks in noise-regulated, eco-sensitive, and steep-terrained areas.

The Midlands Machinery Show is specialist – ‘very intentionally’, says event organiser Elizabeth Halsall. “It brings together the relevant people, businesses, and organisations to create two focused and dynamic days. And while the sustainable future of agriculture is a focus, so too are the commercial needs of farm and land management businesses today.”
