Along with sponsoring the event, Durante Rentals and NY-NJ Takeuchi will have Takeuchi mini excavators on display. Attendees can get an up-close look at these machine and Chris Hamblet, vice president of Takeuchi Sales at Durante, will be on hand to answer questions. “This will be our second year at the show and if you own or operate excavators, you need to be here,” he says. “The safety lessons you’ll take away from this event are invaluable, helping prevent injuries and save lives.”
