JekkoUSA drew an enthusiastic response to its exhibit during the 2017 Con Expo trade show in Las Vegas, March 7-11. JMG USA displayed a variety of minicranes of different lifting and reaching capacities.
The show, which covered 2.5 million square feet of exhibitor space, drew more than 120,000 visitors. Attendees that stopped by the JekkoUSA site showed special interest in JekkoUSA’s newest model, the SPK60, which featured the combined strengths of a crawler crane and a pick-and-carry crane.
What made the SPK60 one of the main attractions this year was its versatility. The crane has a maximum lifting capacity of more than 6.5 tons and a reach of nearly 89′, 360-degree rotation, and can be driven or operated via radio remote.
JekkoUSA product manager Rich Caudill recognized a change in tone throughout the five-day show: “People are engaging in more optimistic, long-term planning, rather than just purchasing for a single job,” he said.
Con Expo is one of the largest exhibitions of heavy equipment in the world. It is held every three years for the construction and concrete industries.
