Get Ready For Another Entertaining Earthmoving Experience


With the third annual Diesel Dirt & Turf Expo fast approaching, the increasing numbers of exhibitors reflects the dramatic growth in the Expo’s popularity. Its success has prompted many earthmoving machinery and attachment dealers to express keen interest in holding the event in all states.

Companies comprising the Australian earthmoving industry have collaborated on the unique formula for the Expo,which has reignited excitement for earthmoving trade shows. Three years on, this industry-owned and managed construction show is the biggest in the country, with loads to see and great entertainment for the whole family.

The Expo’s home is by the lake and on the expansive grounds of the Panthers Penrith Club. This location is a great display area with excellent public access. For the convenience of interstate and international exhibitors and guests, there’s plenty of free parking, accommodation, restaurants and bars in the one location.

Operators and fleet owners from all over Australia will be there to take advantage of this once-a-year opportunity to check out the huge savings and new model releases that will be offered by many exhibitors.


Major exhibitors are planning to mount large displays of their latest machinery, with the added incentive of extremely attractive price and finance deals.

All the major brands will be there: Volvo, Komatsu, Toro, Kobelco, Wacker Neuson, Takeuchi, Bobcat, JCB, Kubota, Hyundai, Toro, ASV, Case, CAT, Manitou, Dieci, Yanmar, Mustang, Kanga, Ditchwitch, Toyota, Dingo, Dynapac, Hitachi, Vermeer, Liebherr and many more.

With the title ‘best stand’ at stake, you can bet these machinery companies don’t hold back on their displays as they fight for this prized trophy, so expect to see some very impressive displays.

There will also be a massive display of mowers, lasers, ground engaging tools, irrigation equipment, scales, tyres and mags, plant hire equipment, finance companies and much more.


Plenty of exciting entertainment is scheduled throughout the three days of the Expo, so the organisers recommend you lock in April 13-15 in your calendar for this event that’s not to be missed! There is a large licenced hospitality area with live music playing throughout the day, so guests can kick back with a cold beverage and a bite to eat at one of the many food trucks.

The kids can wear themselves out on the huge jumping castle and be amazed by other attractions like Little Big Rigs, NSW Police Highway patrol cars, drag cars, Harley Davidson Dyno and many more.

Free Style Kings are back and will be performing 12 shows again over the three days. Showcasing Australia’s top freestyle riders, Free Style Kings are a very impressive bunch of athletes who will perform record breaking stunts, with riders pushing skills to their limits.



Pickles Auctions will have over 100 machines displayed over a huge area. All machines must be sold so you don’t want to miss out on this massive sale.

Live demonstrations on all the latest machinery will be running over the three days.

This is your chance to test drive many different machines to see what gear is right for you. Big cash prizes and trophies in the Operators’ Challenge will test your skills.

The Takeuchi excavator challenge is sponsored by Semco and an ASV Posi-Track challenge is sponsored by the Porter Group.

If you think you’re up to it and want to challenge your mates, this is your chance to win some cash prizes and hold the bragging rights for the next 12 months. In all, $16,000 in prize money is there to be won.


Major prizes include a Toro ride-on mower and stump grinder. Norm Engineering is again giving away 50 fuel vouchers to random customers. Many exhibitors will be giving away prizes, so there will be dozens of chances to be a winner. For a chance to win prizes, all you need to do is be there.

What has made the Expo the biggest and best is free entry for the whole family, no registration needed, no hidden fees, the chance to win many prizes and getting a great deal while being entertained.
