Default Engcon Big Dig Day - Saturday 21st July 2018

Hello All

One for the diary - venue is NorthWest Services training area in Ashton-in-Makerfield (nr.Wigan).

The format will be similar to the Beast from the East at Tewkesbury back in the beginning of March, only without the snow (hopefully). Plenty of different makes and sizes of diggers (Ducks and Tracked) with a variety of different control systems. More info to follow as we get the diggers confirmed.

All welcome, as before.

regards

Robert

Robert that's ten minutes away from me. So it'd be rude not to, count me in

OK - have a few diggers confirmed now (all subject to change as these are Owner-operated machines and business comes first)

Wacker-Neuson ET90 twin hitch DC2 fully proportional controls
Hitachi ZX85 twin hitch DC2
Case CX26 twin hitch SS15 control (hammer pedal and buttons)
Takeuchi TB240 direct mount DC2
JCB JS145 twin hitch DC2
Volvo ECR40D direct mount DC2
Komatsu PC30 twin hitch DC2
Takeuchi TB260 direct mount DC2
Volvo EC140 twin hitch DC2
Kobelco SKR140 twin hitch DC2
Hitachi ZX130 twin hitch DC2

There may well be more booked between now and then

Many of the twin hitch setups will have EC-Oil on them

Without making myself a hostage to fortune, as well as many of the UK Engcon team and some of our Service Partners, a lot of the owners or operators will be present to offer opinions and advice as well Based on our experience at Tewkesbury, many of the visitors found it a good networking event and hung around to chat to each other. If you haven't tried a tilty before - now's your chance; no-one will be judging you and we've all started from the same place.

All of the machines will be available to try - hopefully something for everyone and there is a large digging area (a lot bigger than at Tewkesbury).

There will also be some seriously stupid show offers on the day.

Food provided and access from the motorway is really good: a couple of minutes from M6 northbound Jn26. Plenty of parking. Suncream and umbrellas suggested, Hi-Vis and safety footwear required

best regards,

Robert
