One of the most well-known companies present on the open-air grounds F9–F13 should be Bobcat, the American manufacturer of compact machines. On this booth, the whole product range was represented up to the latest prototypes like the compact excavator 341, but also the famous compact loaders, of course. A T300, weighing 4 tonnes, demonstrated the power of this machines by carrying during the demo shows it’s “little brother” S100 weighing 1.8 tonnes.

Other well-known manufactures on this open-air grouns were Bomag, Wirtgen and Vögele. Bomag, now member of the Fayat Group, showed a representation of their product range, including rather rare machines like the MPH122-2 soil stabilizer or BW236D-4 roller with a polygonial drum that is supposed to give better compaction results.
The Wirtgen Group, of which Vögele is a member, showed, like in 2004, almost it’s complete range of products. Among this were the new -2 pavelayers Super 2100-2 and Super 1800-2. Wirtgen showed large-scale machines like the 2500SM surface miner with an operating width of 2.5m (98″) or the cold recycling mixing plant, built onto a semi-trailer.
