Vertikal Days goes up a gear

17 April 2019

After a very successful 2018 event, Vertikal Days returns to Castle Donington this year and promises a number of exciting product launches for the UK. The two day event will take place on 15–16 May at Donington Park in the East Midlands, one of the famous grounds of British motorsport.

A number of new products will be making their way over from Bauma in Munich, so Vertikal Days will be the first time a lot of new products will be shown in the UK.

Liebherr says it will have a few surprises up its sleeve, alongside the UK’s first 230t LTM 1230-5.1 and the debut of its 100t LTR 1100 telescopic crawler crane with a Stage V diesel. Spierings will show the first production version of the three axle SK487-AT3 City Boy hybrid mobile self-erecting tower crane. Alfa Access Services has recently been appointed as the UK distributor for Italian mini crane manufacturer BG Lift/Brenerro Gru and will show the lightweight 580kg capacity M060, 2.5t M250 spider crane and 14.5t CWE 525 tracked loader crane. Jekko spider cranes will be found on the JT Cranes stand and will include the UK launch of the lithium powered SPX532. First time exhibitor Foster Cranes—now the Hoeflon distributor—will show a range of Hoeflon cranes including the UK launch of the 8t lithium battery powered C30 compact spider crane.

For telehandler buyers, Magni will show the new high capacity 8t RTH 8.25 SH 360° telehandler, which can handle 5.3t at its maximum forward reach of 25m. UK rental company GT Lifting will exhibit telehandlers from Magni and Merlo while JCB will bring the 4,000kg/18m 540-180 with platform attachment.

There will also be a number of exhibitors showcasing aerial work platforms.

The Marketplace Pavilion will feature a number of new exhibitors related to the crane, access and telehandler industries including safety equipment, software, components and more.
