Are the exhibitors qualifying for free entry to the show ground these days or was that only in the good old days. The local show to us did away with that but I would think its probably a quick way to kill of an event?

Exhibitors get a entry pass. I've got two as I want one incase Chris my elderly engineering Freind who's help and time has been invaluable the past couple years is well enough to tag along.

It's a good show. But the big issue for anyone exhibiting plant is the haulage costs. I alone will be around the £1000 mark and that's with me driving a lorry myself.

Wowsers, does the truck run on refined uranium?!
Weeks hire in effect, plus diesel and insurance. Won't be much under £1000. Probably slightly over.

To have the gear shifted up was/is £450 each way. BUT that means trusting someone else to cram it all on and then I still have to drive the pickup up at about £200 in fuel... so Not great, Not terrible.

Long term I want my own 6x2 or 8x4 plant wagon for shows... but thats a huge outlay on something only to be used a couple times a year.

Any work for any 8x4 hookloader in your neck of the woods, or does size kill it? Two birds one stone etc etc
