Following its inaugural event last year, the Diesel Dirt & Turf expo has recorded yet another successful show this year with Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia Pty Ltd (HCA) among one of their biggest exhibitors. This year, the expo attracted an outstanding number of adult visitors, more than 76,000 were recorded over the three days it ran. The national earthmoving equipment expo was held from April 13 to 15, 2018 at the grounds of the Penrith Panthers Club (NSW). The premier construction event is committed to bringing together the largest range of earthmoving machinery, attachments, Ag machinery, trucks and mowing equipment to Western Sydney. This family-friendly show is managed by representatives of the Australian earthmoving equipment industry with the aim to help construction contractors keep up to date with all the latest technologies in the industry.
The event proved a fantastic opportunity for Hitachi and the Sydney branch to showcase a range of innovative products. This year’s exhibit showcased the Hitachi mini excavator range; ZX17U-5, ZX26U-5, ZX33U-5, ZX38U-5, two ZX48U-5, ZX55U-5 and ZX65USB-5 along with one mid-size ZX250-5 excavator, a ZW150-5 wheel loader and a John Deere 770GP motor grader.
HCA proved a prominent exhibitor at the show with an impressive stand and machine showcase. As a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, a donation box for the Humpty Dumpty Foundation was positioned inside the marquee to help raise much needed funds in exchange for a stubby cooler or promotional cap. In total $356.70 was raised over the three consecutive days.
“Diesel Dirt & Turf was an excellent show for HCA with a huge attraction in numbers and the organisation was well executed and thought out. It was a great opportunity to engage with customers face to face, with plenty of genuine sales leads collected during the three day exhibit,” said Brennan Garbutt, HCA’s NSW Sales Manager.
