At upcoming event

Farm equipment owners and operators will be challenged by dealer Sharmans Agricultural to demonstrate their skills behind the controls of an electric JCB mini excavator at the Midlands Machinery Show at the Newark Showground in November.

Managing director Scott Barclay (pictured above) has enthusiastically welcomed the return of the event following last year’s forced cancellation, especially now that the company is operating across a larger JCB sales, parts and service territory.

In addition to depots at Stamford and Eltisley near St Neots, Sharmans Agricultural has branches at Grantham, Melton Mowbray, Lowdham, and Pytchley near Kettering that cover a JCB territory now extending from South Yorkshire through Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland to Northamptonshire.

Scott said, “I’m delighted that we’ll be back at the Midlands Machinery Show this year; we’ve exhibited there ever since the event started and it will be good to meet customers and show them the latest products from the manufacturers we represent.”

The skills challenge, which will involve picking up footballs with a digger bucket to place them in a barrel, will be a bit of fun, he adds, but also a good way to illustrate the quietness and smooth controls of JCB’s 19C-1E all-electric mini excavator.

The Midlands Machinery Show will be hosted by the Newark & Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society on November 9th and 10th at the Newark Showground.
