SED is going ahead as planned and is staging its 44th annual event. Although the organisers have reported that it will be a smaller event than it would normally stage, within the region of 200 exhibitors, they have confirmed that there will still be a many new product launches, new exhibitors, live demonstrations and the latest in innovations in plant and machinery

New Holland will be focusing heavily on operators at the show this year and will be inviting plant operators to explore and drive the machinery to its full potential on the company’s demonstration area.
Ammann will be showing an extensive selection of machines from their mini excavators and compaction equipment, together with a number of Cormidi tracked dumpers. New this year will be a line of excavator attachments aimed at the demolition and recycling market.
Hyundai Heavy Industries is back this year showing a range of mini and midi excavators and also a loading shovel – exact models have yet to be confirmed. Hyundai also has a substantial demonstration plot, where the excavators will be put through their paces.
Bobcat will have static and working demonstrations of the full range of compact equipment from micro, mini and zero-tail swing excavators to state-of-the art skid steers, compact tracked loaders and telehandlers, although Bobcat has not released details of exact models.
Other major excavator manufacturers attending SED this year include, Hanix, Doosan Infracore and Case New Holland.
the world’s leading manufacturer of tiltrotators, now offers a fully automatic quick hitch with a certified safe working load (SWL), which is believed to be a first in the UK plant industry. The Engcon fully automatic S60 quick hitch has been tested by Lloyds British Testing to a SWL of 10 tonnes and a proof load of 20 tonnes. The company offers a range of quick hitches to suit machines from 1 tonne through to 45 tonnes. Engcon will be showing and demonstrating the automatic quick hitch at this year’s show.
Hydrex, the sole dealer in the UK and Ireland for the Fuchs range of rehandling machines, will be exhibiting a selection of machines from its range. There will also be a selection of telehandlers on display.
Austrian company, Josef Martin is a new SED exhibitor and will be exhibiting its range of excavator buckets, quick coupling systems, and safety systems.

Nissan Commercial Vehicles is back showing its comprehensive vehicle range; on display will be the Cabstar, which has a choice of three chassis lengths, with drop-side, tipper, box van and refrigerated box formats available. Also, Nissan Panel vans – the Primastar and Interstar will be on the stand – both are available as Crew van and Minibus. Finally, on display, the Nissan Navara, which needs little introduction as the best selling pick-up in the UK for the last two years.
Vauxhall Motors is once again making its presence felt at the show, visitors can expect to see the seriously big Movano, the ever-popular Vivaro, the Astravan and the compact yet practical, Combo Crew Van.
The launch last year of its construction range prompted Montracon to take its first ever stand at SED in 2008 – what a success it turned out to be for Montracon – so much so that the company has booked once again and will be back at the 2009 event with a bigger and better stand. On display will be a wider range of products including machinery carriers, tippers and a host of flat platform derivatives including step frames, extendibles and brick & block carriers.

Chieftan Trailers, Ifor Williams Trailers, King Trailers, McCauley Trailers and Nooteboom Trailers are other trailer manufacturers taking part in this year’s SED.
