Now that the dust has (quite literally) settled after a busy week at Hillhead 2016 we can report it was our most successful show to date.
We welcomed many visitors, combined with new and old faces to our stand, receiving numerous comments of praise on the setup throughout the three days.
Our centrally located stand brought together both Yanmar and Ammann products working from the smaller machines in the centre out towards the largest 8 ton, ViO80 excavator and single drum ASC130 roller on either edge.

This year the machines we displayed were all stickered up to the companies that had already purchased them, which included some of the biggest hire firms in the North west of England.
Included in this was a highly spec'd SV26 complete with hydraulic quick hitch and anti theft systems. This machine had a lot of interest in it as it's seen to be one of the most powerful and reliable excavators in the 2.5 tonne range.
Our Ammann Rammax RW1575 trench roller was positioned to show of its articulating joint and also its oscillating drums. Showing prospective owners how the drums stay in contact with the ground even over uneven surfaces.
A good way to judge the successfulness of a show is seeing what machines come back to base at the end of it. This year we sold the ASC130 off the stand to a large hire company that already run our ARX tandem rollers plus the SV100 2 piece boom machine, located with Steelwrist at the show has been sold by Oxfordshire based dealers Farol LTD.
This sale is the first one of this innovative new machine into the UK & Ireland and we will be doing further publicity into this sale soon.
So despite the weather once again the Hillhead show was a popular one, a big thanks to everyone who organised the event and to our suppliers and customers who helped make the A&Y stand a popular and varied place.
