With earthmoving expos fairly thin on the ground in Australia, the TradeEarthmovers team headed up to Gunnedah, country New South Wales, for the Commonwealth Bank AgQuip 2014 field days, where earthmovers mingled with farm gear over a 26-heactare paddock.

We caught up with some old friends from companies such as Ditch Witch and Mini Excavator Sales, and met some new ones at Case, Hyundai and more. 

Organisers were expecting attendance figures of over 100,000 for the three days of the show, where more than 3,000 businesses , organisations and authorities were represented.

Everyone seemed upbeat, with farmers smiling because of recent rains, and eartmover companies reporting strong interest and sales from attendees.
