ConExpo-Con main exposition area

Save the dates March 10-14, construction people! ConExpo-Con, North America’s largest construction trade show, will be held in Las Vegas in 2020. You cannot miss this opportunity to see the latest equipment and technologies in your industry. It only comes once every three years.

The trade show will represent asphalt, aggregates, concrete, earthmoving, lifting, mining, utilities and so much more. There will be 2,800 exhibitors and 150 education sessions. Therefore you’ll have a chance to meet, greet, and network with fellow construction business owners, professionals, and industry leaders. All in a sprawling 2,500,000 square foot display arena.

No other show connects attendees from every major construction sector (engineering: 11%; sales/marketing: 13%; project/fleet managers: 15%, foremen/operators: 19% and executives: 42%). The educational sessions will teach you everything from decreasing downtime and improving efficiency to upgrading safety checks and employee retention strategies.

Custom Truck and Load King will be representing multiple industries in multiple booths at this year’s ConExpo-Con. Here’s a run-down of what the construction industry will see from us at this year’s show.

Kenworth Booth (#S62939) – Load King Stinger 80-160
(Kenworth T880

The LK 80-160 has an 80-ton capacity, six-section, full power, 160-foot main boom.  This boom will showcase a new double-keel design, that allows for a lighter, stronger boom than the four-plate it replaced.  The crane has two single-stage cylinders that provide different operating modes:  one focused on stability, and the other on structural capacity, making a better chart throughout.

It will also introduce a brand new 58-foot bi-fold lattice swing-away jib, making the maximum tip height 228 feet.  The Load King Stinger 80-160 will set up faster at the job-site due to increased speed of the outriggers and retain the modern tilt-cab from the 80-126, previously known as the Crossover 8000.  Several improvements to the hydraulic system will enhance the operating characteristics of the crane under load.

Freightliner Booth (#S63639) – Load King 17’ Elliptical Dump
(Freightliner 114SD 8X4)

The LK 17′ Elliptical dump truck features a 21-22 cubic yard capacity, 60″ side heights, and 1/4″ AR450 steel floor, sides, front doghouse, and tailgate. It has dirt shedding angles on the sides, top rail, tailgate, and hoist well and can handle anything from sand to large aggregates, riprap, and asphalt.  All of this and more, mounted on a new Freightliner 114SD, which offers high quality internal and external features as well, will make this unit your next favorite dump truck.
