Rhino leads the charge at Bauma 2022

27th Oct 2022

The VAC UK Longo Rhino Vacuum Excavator, the world’s most powerful and efficient twin fan vacuum excavator, was at the forefront of exhibits at Bauma 2022 – the world’s leading construction machinery trade fair.

The Rhino attracted a great deal of interest as the centrepiece of the Longo Euroservice S.R.L stand at the exhibition which brings together the sector’s most impressive products and is a showcase for innovation.

Manufacturers continue to maker big advances in automation, electric and hydrogen.

Some of the highlights of the show included: the Thwaites Ltd 3 tonne electric dumper; the Mercedes-Benz Trucks eActros electric truck with its 310 mile range; the Bell Equipment Mining & Construction autonomous ADT ; and the Trombia Technologies / Snowek autonomous road sweeper. There was also a demonstration all-electric suction excavator which is not yet available for sale but may be released in 2024.

VAC UK Director Patrick Curran believes the show illustrated the increasing pace of development that manufacturers are achieving particularly on remote/autonomous products and alternative power.

“The electric equipment on show was very impressive, and as charge durations improve and costs fall it becomes more practical for widespread use,” he said.
