Hassells Sennebogen Trentham Event gets off the ground!

With easy parking and all the attractions of the Trentham Gardens and Estate to experience, the shows visitors were able to "mix business with pleasure."
Business was centred on the Marquee and dedicated trade only Show areas and Demonstration zone where visitors were able to see the Sennebogen Greenline Material handlers at close quarters. The 821, and the latest D-series machines; the new 825 and 830 machines were all on display.
All the German made Sennebogen's were put through their paces by customers, many of who were expert drivers. The quietness of the machines and driver comfort level was commented on regularly throughout the show. The sheer power was clear too as one visitor commented "there is no comparison with my old machine - absolutely stunning!"
Both the Scrap Metal and Waste Management industries were both well represented at this inaugural event.
Centre stage was the 305 Multihandler, complete with its incredible power, reach and manoeuvrability was a much requested demo. In particular the gains in operational efficiency and improved safety from the 4m elevated cab were noted by many waste professionals.
The weather changed from a wintery Saturday to a glorious "Summertime" Sunday. Pleasure for some came in form of a ride on the huge Ferris wheel offering superb views over the Trentham Gardens and Lakes and down to the show area below.
One visitor was spotted waiting patiently as his wife visited yet another of the huge selection of shops before taking in a civilised late lunch.
The usual Hassells informality was there and the quality of the Sennebogen Greenline machines did the "talking" to potential customers.
Hassells and Sennebogen should be commended for getting out there and flying the flag.
