Now on the smaller side of things, micros remain a mainstay. Takeuchi have taken their time getting a new micro and finally it’s on these shores. The new TB210R offers lots of micro advantages with significant short tail swing and less than a metre width capacity but with valuable extending tracks for added stability when digging.

Plantworx 2015 marks a welcome return to the demo circuit for Hanix Europe. The company will be demonstrating its full range of micro, mini and midi excavators at the show.
Hanix will be demonstrating the extremely versatile H09D – weighing in at just 980kg, yet loaded with big-machine features, its retractable tracks make it an ideal machine for work on access-restricted sites – through to the H55DR with one of the greatest bucket digging forces in its class. In its standard format, the H55DR is a true zero-tail swing excavator and Hanix will be demonstrating a new long arm version of this high performance digging workhorse – claiming an impressive digging depth of over 4 metres.
Hanix also has further plans for 2015 which include the eagerly awaited introduction of a new 8 tonne machine later in the year, a development which gives the Japanese company a formidable range to suit all users.
