The PlantworX 2017 exhibition was the most important gathering of the UK construction equipment industry this year.

Attracting just under 400 exhibitors, the show has become the worthy successor to the long-lamented SED of old. And even though torrential rain on the opening day turned the showground into the bastard offspring of a Glastonbury festival and The Somme, the visitors came in their droves to see the hottest new equipment on the market.

This exclusive video brings you just some of the the sights and sounds of a truly memorable show.
