The new Miller PowerLatch Tilt coupler is said to have made a big impression on the thousands of visitors who braved the summer storms to attend the recent 2017 Plantworx exhibition at Bruntingthorpe proving grounds in Leicestershire, central England.

A prominent international earthmoving attachments manufacturer, Miller welcomed hundreds of visitors to its Plantworx stand, all keen to find out more about the new innovative PowerLatch Tilt. The coupler allows attachments, whether a bucket, breaker or grapple, to be rotated up to 180 degrees, giving operators greater onsite versatility.

Over at the Miller demonstration area, experienced driver Jeff Morris was putting a new Kubota KX080-4 compact excavator fitted with the new PowerLatch Tilt coupler to the test. Morris, owner of Morris Plant Hire, said “The PowerLatch Tilt is a solid piece of kit, it grips the attachment pins tightly, with no sliding about when you tilt to full rotation, which is a full 90 degrees both ways. The added versatility and functionality of the tilt really does offer greater accessibility, ideal for civil and ground works.”

Miller said the firm’s industry-leading PowerLatch Tilt couplers and Scoop buckets were the subject of specific requests from a number of key customers during Plantworx 2017, with some significant deals made at the show. In addition, visitors to the Miller stand gained an insight into the company’s exciting earthmoving attachment product pipeline currently under development.

Held June 6-8, Plantworx 2017 marked the end of a busy and successful run of international exhibitions for Miller, who not only used the 2017 expo season to launch its new PowerLatch Tilt coupler, but also to continue to build important relationships with new and existing customers in the UK and across the globe.

Brendan Quill, sales and marketing director at Miller, said: “Despite the challenging weather conditions Plantworx 2017 turned out to be extremely encouraging for Miller, with a number of major deals being agreed on our stand and sales enquiries at an exceptionally high level compared to previous shows. Plantworx provides us with the perfect opportunity to connect with new and existing customers and demonstrate live the tangible benefits of our latest product innovations.”
