Maximum Capacity Media to Host Second Annual Equipment Showcase

Lift and Access magazine and parent company Maximum Capacity Media, Fort Dodge, Iowa, announce that the second annual Lift and Access Showcase will take place Oct. 30-Nov. 2 in Phoenix, Ariz.

Last year's hugely successful Telehandler Showcase featured 10,000- to 11,000-pound capacity telescopic handlers with 50- to 59-foot lift heights. This year, the event will focus on two leading product categories: 40- to 45-foot telescopic boom lifts and compact telehandlers. Reviews of the event were published in the January and February 2007 editions of Lift and Access, as well as a special supplement in Construction Equipment magazine.

Lift and Access has received a commitment from every North America provider of compact telescopic handlers that they will be in attendance, including Bobcat, Cat, Gehl, Genie, JCB, JLG, Manitou, Mustang, and Xtreme. These companies will bring machines and attachments to the Telehandler Showcase.

Additionally the Lift and Access staff will host its inaugural Boom Lift Showcase, and all current providers of 40-foot platform height telescopic boom lifts will be in attendance. Products from Snorkel/UpRight, Haulotte, Genie, JLG, and Skyjack will be evaluated by the Lift and Access staff during the four-day event.

Look for complete evaluations of all participating machines in early 2008 editions of Lift and Access, as well as Construction Equipment. In addition, select component vendors are eligible to register to attend this unique event. For more information call 1-800-231-8953 or email
