Tip-ex and Tank-ex takes place at the Harrogate Convention Centre on 1-3 June and, with over 100 exhibitors across both shows, it is the must-attend event for operators involved in the dry bulk and liquid transport sectors.

A host of tip-top bodybuilders will be attending, with Abba Commercials will showcasing all three of its Predator Ultimate tipper bodies (pictured).

One in the livery of Huntingdon-based haulier SR Harradine; another a 2017 demonstrator body mounted on a Scania 8x4 chassis; and another on the Edbro outdoor stand.

Aliweld will be launching the Smooth Line Monocoque body that enables a ribbed body to be skinned without using rivets, allowing customers to choose any height of body with a sleek finish.

Gleeson Truck Bodies will unveil its new G100 lightweight grab tipper with a lower body height and a Binotto B3 front end cylinder for faster tipping, as well as the L100 Gleelight full Hardox body, which it claims is giving aluminium bodies a run for their money.

Meanwhile, Thompsons Group will be bringing one of 10 steel Loadmaster bodies it is supplying to Hargreaves Services. Numerous other bodies will also be available on its stand, including the Paymaster trailer.

Elsewhere, Tankquip will be bringing its two biggest sellers to the show – a 54m³ plank bulker and a 32m³ lightweight aggregate trailer.

And if that’s not enough, Wilcox Commercial Vehicles will also have an extensive range of its aluminium rigids and trailers on its stand.
