By Euan Youdale19 August 2022
The Bauma 2022 trade fair will take place will take place at the Messe München exhibition centre in Munich, Germany from the 24 to the 30 October.
While some of the major scissor and boom manufacturers have pulled out of Bauma, the Chinese producers will be there in force, along with the rest of the access industry.
The wait for Bauma may have been longer than usual, due to the pandemic, but that has only served to increase the anticipation for the world’s largest construction equipment trade show.
Bauma 2022 exhibitor list for access equipment
While access manufacturers will be out in force, there are some absences that will not go unnoticed, namely the largest scissor and boom lift manufacturers based in Europe and North America. Those being: JLG, Genie, Skyjack, Haulotte Snorkel and Niftylift.
Conversely, the major Chinese access equipment manufacturers will be at the show, including Dingli, Sinoboom, XCMG, LGMG and Zoomlion.
This dynamic will make for an interesting exhibition for the access sector and of course AI will be there to report the details.
From the wider access sector, vehicle mount and spider lift manufacturers, along with a range of other low level access producers and utility-related companies will be there too.
Therefore, there will be plenty for anyone interested in the access industry to see at the show.
Most companies are holding back on their product launch information until nearer the time, nevertheless, here follows some early examples of what can be expected.
[The full Bauma 2022 showguide will be published in the September issue of AI.]

Among the aerial platforms, tracked pallet jacks, minidumpers and undercarriages will be the direct electric drive TeleCrawler TC22S spider lift, designed with an unrestricted working range in difficult terrain or in small spaces.
The model is available with three power units: fully electric; bi-energy; or Kubota diesel engine coupled with a 220V electric motor.
