    Just wanted to let people know that CONEX the CT equipment show is scheduled for next week Feb 6-7. Wondering who might attend from Plowsite. Last year there was some excellent exhibits.

    Where is it? And when is it(times)?
    I would love to go, but from the 6pm weather, looks like I will be kinda busy for a day or two.
    I know that this won't be directly interfering with the show, unfortunatley, it will set my work schedule back a few days.

    Also, who/what was there last year?

    I'll be there thursday from like 4:30pm or so on dependng on traffic. It's mostly the same stuff every year, but get to see some new stuff and get some samples. The whelen display is always something to look forward to. the patriots cheerleaders are also another reason.

    If the Patriots win the Superbowl they may have something better to do in the middle of the week. Maybe a victory parade or something like that.

    I will still be at CONEX

    How far is that from Danbury and where are you guys getting your passes?

    It's just north of Hartford, only a short distance up 91. So, that should be about 45 min or so from Danbury I would think.

    From Danbury you continue east on I-84 for about an 50 minutes to an hour. Go to the website you may be able to still register.

    I have my passes as well. I am going to try and tie it in with seeing the Phontom of the Opera at the Bushnell that night as well. That way I get culture and a play. The wife outta really like this idea.

    I just read the entire list of exhibitors, this must be one huge building to house them all! Does everyone have product displays? It sounds a lot better than the one we have in White Plains.

    I have been to the show in White Plains. The CONEX show is much better IMO. It is in a very large exhibition center. I encouraged you to come.

    I was a little disappointed there wasn't more lawn equipment there, I'm shopping for a new Z this season. I still managed to collect two bags of literature.

    Stuff that caught my eye:

    Polaris is making a small tracked skid steer about the size of the smallest ASV (is it the 30?)

    Komatsu is introducing two new skid steers, though I wasn't that impressed with them.

    There was a relatively small articulated site truck with the dump mounted on a turntable similar to what the railrod uses so you can dump the load to the side of the truck

    I'm going to start a thread on the LED lights I saw at the Whelen booth, so look for that.

    I got screwed up at the 84/91 interchange, between trying to figure out which lane to be in, looking out for the cars flying past me, and watching the SWAT guys and hovering police helicopter (some nut with a gun was loose in the Capitol), I missed the exit. It took me 1/2 hour to get turned around and back to try again.:confused:
