The 4th biennial Plantworx Construction Exhibition, hosted by the CEA (Construction Equipment Association) event took place last week at its brand new home at the East of England Arena in Peterborough. In true Plantworx tradition, the weather at the show was biblical and it poured down with rain for most of the three days. However, despite the wet conditions, the show saw positive visitor numbers from hardy construction professionals who donned their waterproofs!
During the show, the spotlight was firmly on earthmoving attachments manufacturer, Miller UK who showcased the latest in quick coupler innovation – the GT Series. Miller’s latest series of fully hydraulic quick couplers suitable for excavators from 1-50 tonne allows operators of all sizes of excavators to switch seamlessly between attachments. Miller’s philosophy is to always try to ensure that their customers have the most advanced attachment products in the market and the latest Miller quick coupler range is testament to this.
James Ross, who has recently joined the team as Miller’s Business Development Director commented, “Plantworx was the perfect venue to launch our brand new Miller GT Series range; it’s a very hands-on exhibition and despite the weather conditions, the flow of traffic onto our stand continued throughout the three days and visitors were able to see the latest GT quick couplers in action for themselves.”
The Miller GT Series heralds a new era of unrivalled power and cutting-edge intelligent coupler technology increasing job site safety, machine versatility and productivity. The latest Miller GT coupler delivers the safest, lightest, lowest, yet strongest class leading quick coupler in the marketplace. Easy to operate and far lighter and stronger than any other quick hitch coupler, this attachment optimises the machines’ performance. Miller GT series also offers an ISO 13031 compliant novel locking system, designed to ensure that the widest set of OEM pin pickups are safely attached all from the comfort and security of your cab.
The innovative ‘Ground Touch (GT)’ quick coupler series features a revolutionary intelligent coupler sensor connect system, which will only allow attachment change process to commence when the attachment is safely placed on the ground, and not for the first time sees Miller leading the way in going above and beyond legislative requirements.
Barry Robison, Miller UK’s marketing manager said, “We’ve unveiled something special at Plantworx. The new GT series is set to bring innovation to the excavator industry like never before. We strongly believe that coupler technology has a key role to play in improving the operator experience; making on-site operations safer, more convenient and capable of withstanding the most challenging working environments”. When asked about the success of the show for Miller he added, “As Miller continue to focus on increasing their market share and strengthening their brand awareness and presence, the reaction and interest to our products at our stand was very positive.”
