There will be more truck manufacturers at Tip-ex and Tank-ex than were at the CV Show , as exhibitors head to the Harrogate Convention Centre on 1-3 June for the must-attend event for operators involved in the dry bulk and liquid transport sectors.

Some of the biggest truck manufacturers in the UK will be showing off the best vehicles for the bulk transport industry: Volvo Trucks’ stand will feature an FM-500 8x4 tipper with a day cab, Thompsons steel body, Palfinger Epsilon Crane and grab, Jimmy Beam Downlights and a lower passenger door window.

It’s not just trucks on show at Tip-ex and Tank-ex, a whole swathe of ancillary equipment will be on show, so f you’re in the market for sheeting systems there will be plenty on display, including the relaunch of Dawbarn & Sons’ Hydroclear sheeting system, which is claimed to be much lighter and more reliable than its predecessor.
