Home advantage pays off for Chris Knight at Black Isle Show

YANMAR has announced that its Highland-based dealer Chris Knight Plant Sales enjoyed ‘unprecedented success’ at this year’s Black Isle Show.

Hundreds of visitors got to see models from the manufacturer’s compact range, including the Yanmar SV08, SV18 SV22 and SV60 tracked excavators; Vi012, Vi057 and Vi082 zero tail swing excavators; and C08, C12 and C30 tracked carriers.

Chris Knight said, “The Black Isle Show is always a great event for us, and this year we moved  to a much bigger stand which gave us the opportunity to display more Yanmar products. 2019 was our fifth year exhibiting at the show, but our first in conjunction with Yanmar, and we saw a steady stream of visitors to the stand over the two days.

“We were delighted with the response to Yanmar’s latest equipment range – especially the B95W wheeled excavator and compact tracked carriers. The brand is renowned worldwide for its extensive equipment portfolio, a pedigree we really saw reflected by the interest on stand.”

Bart Verstraete, area sales manager at Yanmar Construction Equipment Europe added, “Working with Chris Knight Plant Sales has increased access to our compact equipment portfolio for owner operators across the Highlands. Our equipment has been developed to excel in the toughest environments and most challenging terrains. Feedback from the Black Isle Show has been fantastic and we’re looking forward to working closely with the Chris Knight Plant Sales team to further increase our presence across northern Scotland.”
