March sees the beginning of our annual tour of Kent Exhibitions and Shows starting with Kent Agri-Expo on the 4th March 2015. Skelton Plant Hire have exhibited at this event since its inception back in 2011 and we are proud to have such a connection to what is now a major event in the Agricultural Diaries of many individuals, businesses and Farmers to name but a few. From its humble beginnings, the quantity and diversity of the exhibitors and indeed the footfall of show-goers has multiplied year on year to what has now become a popular and well turned out event.
Here at Skelton Plant Hire we endeavour to showcase our latest products and engage with existing clientele and indeed new and interested parties who venture on our stand. This year is proving particularly challenging to find surplus plant and equipment for the show due to current demand for our products out in the market place, however, with pre-planning and the wind in the right direction we’re confident of putting on a good show. For the first time at Agri-Expo we will be showing recent new entrants to our ever expanding hire fleet such as the John Deere Gator 855D, now a common site on farms, festivals, larger construction sites and various bespoke applications such as TV crews on assignment. This driver friendly piece of kit has somewhat taken the reins from the traditional quad bike and owing to its versatility, is fast becoming a popular request with our clients.

Another first will be the exibiting of the Bobcat T590 Compact Tracked Loader, an extremely manoeuvrable, fast and versatile materials handler that is finding renewed popularity in recent times. Our high specification machines boast a luxurious operator environment with a pressurised, dust free and air conditioned cab and effortless joy stick controls. The machines we provide are pre-specified with Hi Flow Hydraulics and multi plug wiring to enable the machine to attach to and operate a myriad of different attachments for applications in various markets, a truly versatile machine with endless potential.

Along with our more traditional offerings of new telehandelers and excavators will be our renouned Vintage Tractor showing from the Skelton Family Collection. Every year we aim to show a different model from the collection and this time we have not one, but two ‘Grey Fergies’, once again painstakingly restored to their former glory. No doubt they will attract many an interested show goer and indeed comment on the stand but always provoke a reminder of yesteryear amongst all the hi tech and bright coloured machinery on our stand and at the show at large.
Everyone will be most welcome to visit us and indulge in some hospitality and we look forward to what will no doubt be another successful show.
