Exciting New Earthmoving Solutions On Show


Check out the latest and greatest in productivity for your business.

There are plenty of good reasons to be an exhibitor, or plan your visit to the 2018 National Diesel Dirt & Turf Expo, which is being staged for the third year.

Held at the Panthers Penrith from Friday April 13 to Sunday April 15, 2018, the best and latest in equipment and services for the Australian earthmoving industry is on show.

The Expo is a free entry, free parking, entertaining and family-friendly event designed for anyone with an interest in the earthmoving and related industries and who wants to check out the latest in earthmoving machinery, trucks, tools, systems and processes.


Leading industry suppliers such as Auger Torque are back again in 2018 to show customers how their solutions can make their job easier, more efficient and of course more profitable. The company said the Diesel Dirt & Turf Expo plays a vital part in the future success of the equipment industry.

In 2017 Auger Torque introduced its Alignment Monitor as well as its XHT series of screw-pile drives (up to 250,000Nm of torque), which received an unexpected number of enquiries from within Australia and from earthquake prone New Zealand.



Position Partners is again mounting a large display of positioning and machine control solutions for surveying, civil contracting, earthmoving, mining and building activities.

Its equipment being displayed include GPS, survey, laser levelling and machine control equipment.

For example, its Topcon GPS is being used by Koppens Developments, which is upgrading 22km of dirt road as part of $200 million Peninsula Development Road project at the northernmost tip of Australia.

“We run Topcon machine control and survey equipment for all our earthmoving and as-built checks,” explained Koppens Director Scott Koppen. “Initially we started off the project last year using Topcon GPS systems on our excavators to shape the batters.”

Koppens is currently running Topcon Millimetre GPS systems across the graders, paver and milling machines. This technology is designed to deliver extremely fine tolerance accuracy through a combination of GNSS and laser systems.


Other exhibitors whose services are critical in supporting all types of earthmoving equipment include Hydraulic Steels Australia.

An Australian owned and operated company, it supplies and stocks precision steels to support the hydraulic cylinder manufacturing and repair markets.

They carry sizes of steel that target specific OEM machines to service the construction, mining, transport, waste, agriculture and forestry industries. Tubes and bars are delivered anywhere in Australia, and there is a cutting service which allows custom orders to be produced to exact requirements.


Conveniently timed over three days including a weekend, the Expo has become the focal point for the industry.

Users of all types of equipment for the earthmoving and associated industries enjoy the opportunity to see the latest technology at a leisurely pace, while their families take in the entertainment and comfortable hospitality on offer.

Anyone in the market for major equipment upgrades or fleet additions, latest advances in ground tools, trucks, specialised vehicles, materials, finance, digital systems and more will find everything they need. It’s also a great time to take advantage of the special deals that suppliers may be offering, as well as the opportunity to win high value door prizes.

Expo organiser Steve Zivkovich said, “There is no better opportunity for machine owners to become well informed for better planning of future needs. It is always a challenge to keep updated on the latest advances in machine technology and there’s no substitute for getting close to equipment, while accessing the valuable advice from some of the industry’s best-informed technicians and engineers.


Buyers appreciate the opportunity to compare the features and value offered by the huge number of world leading equipment brands represented. The relaxed atmosphere and pace of the expo also makes “shopping around” a more enjoyable experience.

Exhibitors have quickly recognised the value of their participation at the event, with robust sales action throughout the three days and a full list of qualified enquiries for their sales teams to follow up. With most of the 2017 exhibitors already re-booking sites, there are limited sites available for opportunities to ensure your business is included in Australia’s most effective industry event.

With free entry, free parking, plenty of entertainment for the whole family, loads of great food variety and a licensed hospitality area, the 2018 National Diesel Dirt & Turf Expo is where you need to be next April.
