On Friday last week a few members of the Machines4u team hit Lardner Park in Warragul for the combined Trucks in Action and Civil Works expo held from the 16th- to the 18thFebruary.
Excavators, skid steers and other construction machines were available for demonstration at regular intervals throughout the day for potential buyers who desired to demo the equipment. Lucky for us at Machines4u, dealers were happy to let the non-specialists take the reigns and play around in the mud pits.
Matt Turner from Case Construction was kind and patient enough to show us how to use the 5 and 21 tonne excavators which kept us more stimulated than you would probably think. Despite us having just a few square metres to manoeuvre and repeatedly digging and re-filling the same few holes, time ran away with us and we soon realised our team of 3 had taken over the whole trial pit and a small queue was forming to test the other machinery.
It was great to see some of the Machines4u members there and suffice to say our team thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We are now in great anticipation of the next event which will allow us to relive the days where playing in the mud was fun… and completely acceptable!
