The Best Demonstrator at Plantworx (Operator) Award is a hotly contested award as there are many talented demonstrators at the show. However, there has to be a winner and this year it was Takeuchi demonstrator, Owen Mays from Titchfield, Fareham in Hampshire.
Nick Drew, Earthmovers magazine, judged the category, he said, “Owen Mays on the Takeuchi stand, operating the TB395-W rubber duck excavator, showcased exceptional skill and a profound understanding of the machine’s capabilities. His utilisation of the Engcon Tilrotator was nothing short of impressive, exemplifying the perfect blend of flexibility and accuracy. Owen demonstrated the full potential of the machine, leaving a lasting impression as an expert operator.”
